Gullible

We were driving home from school and my son said, "Mom, did you know that if you say hippopotamus really loud it sounds like the word gullible?"

So I tried it.  I was singing hippopotamus, shouting hippopotamus, trying various pronunciations.  NO LUCK!  It just didn't sound like the word gullible.  

So my son said, "Try the word giraffe." 

So I did.  Again no luck. 

SERIOUSLY?  Maybe you can make hippopotamus and giraffe sound like the word gullible.  I didn't have any luck. 
 
UPDATE:  A student has reported that her dad can't make Hippopotamus or Giraffe sound like gullible either!
