That's a really bad simile. It should be something like as graceful as a gazelle, not a hippopatomous on ice skates.

The only one that I could come up with is "Hungry as a Hippo," but now I have another one! Thank you so very much! I appreciate it.

This simile is meant to be sarcastic/ironic - the commenter knows full well a hippotomus would not be graceful on skates, that is why they used it.
