Mom says a hippo would eat me up, but then teacher says a hippo is a vegetarian

I flew down to South Carolina on Thursday.  Friday was my brother’s birthday and as we were all eating cake and ice cream, my mom said: “Want to hear something funny?”

She was looking down at her plate as she asked, and so I asked, “Who are you talking to?”
Mom: “Me.  Oh, I mean, you guys.”
[Everyone laughs.]
Dad: “Well, I think we just did.”
