A Salute to Our Friend, Fiona the Hippo

On January 24, Fiona the Hippo was born, and little did we know she would become our guiding light in 2017. At the time she was born six weeks premature, but you wouldn’t know that by looking at the chunky gal now. With basically her entire life at the Cincinnati Zoo broadcast in extreme detail on social media, Fiona has quickly became their star resident and, honestly, an influencer in her own right. She’s even getting her own children’s book! Over the year we’ve taken in her smiles, her fat rolls, and even her farts, and I can’t wait to see what our chubby queen gets up to in 2018 (probably more swimming, eating, and posing for Instagram.)

From everyone at Jezebel, we love you Fiona!
