CINCINNATI — There's nothing ugly about Cincy Shirts' latest Christmas sweater.
The company Wednesday unveiled a design featuring beloved baby hippo Fiona in front of a background of Cincinnati landmarks, including the Scripps Center, reports our news partner WCPO-TV.
The faux-cross stitch design includes a pair of banners proclaiming "I want a hippopotamus for Christmas," which is probably a common holiday wish in Cincinnati.
It is also, however deeply inadvisable. If you've got Fiona fever, you're much better off getting yourself a cute sweater than adopting a wild animal whose bite exerts 2,000 pounds of force.
Even though she is super cute.

— The Bible’s been around for centuries, but GQ magazine is like, eh? What’s so great about it?
The Good Book makes the mag’s list of “21 Books You Don’t Have to Read.” While allowing “there are some good parts,” the post calls the Bible “repetitive, self-contradictory, sententious, foolish and even at times ill-intentioned.”
The Bible finds itself in the company of works by J.D. Salinger, Mark Twain and Ernest Hemingway on the list of books that GQ is just not that into. “Catcher in the Rye” is dinged as being “without any literary merit whatsoever.” “Huckleberry Finn” is tedious, meandering and hamfisted, GQ says. Hemingway’s sentences? Too short. Even Bram Stoker’s “Dracula” makes the roster of books to skip.
