    Funny enough but after seeing Fatboy screaming and jumping on e.news which was followed by the story of hippo i hardly was able to tell the difference between their faces. Maybe its worthy to change Solly's name into Julius after he is rescued?

      Probably better not as it would do injustice to Solly after all he has been through.
