this poem is mean, yet it is all over the internet

This poem isn't mean at all. The speaker is realizing both sides of the picture...sure, they're think the hippopotamus is weird...but the hippopotamus is thinking the same thing about them!
my lovely hippopotimi

there is nothing mean about the idea that beauty is in the eye of the beholder, be that hippopotimi or other, attraction is subjective and therefore undefinable.

It really isn't mean it is just saying that just becuase things look funny to us doesn't mean we look good to them. We aren't so high and mighty as we think!
