    Shows a 'Slender' and a 'Stout' gentleman standing near the hippopotamus and giraffe enclosures of the Zoological Society Gardens. The slim gentleman, evidently sympathising with the giraffe, wonders how the hippopotamus can walk, while the stout gentleman, evidently sympathising with the hippopotamus, is baffled by the ability of giraffes to 'maintain their perpendicular'.
