You Are Now Under a Bebeh Pygmy Hippo’s Power

The eyes say it all. You wish to be her slave. You may apply through her agent, diary keeper, personal shopper and towel boy.

Her management will take no responsibility for diva tantrums.

And it is hard sleep! And…well, otherwise pretty much the same as work.


Pretty sure. Not totally sure.

‘Cause Mondays are the same for them. Same as every other day.
