I'll bet he tastes just like chicken. Albeit a chicken that fed exclusively on regurgitated fish barf.

DO NOT WANT.

Look out, penguin husbands of Africa (and any she-penguins looking for a mate to keep).

I think I can safely say that the aquarium is one of the best things that ever happened to Camden.  That place is a shiathole otherwise.

Well, there is that really cool ampitheater.  I like that place too.

I've seen the whole thing many times. I originally posted "what is the air speed velocity of an unladen penguin?".

My point is, "air speed velocity" is gibberish. Speed is a simple ratio of distance divided by time. Velocity is speed in a direction, also known as a vector quantity. "Speed velocity" is not a thing.

OK, I'll bite. Can no longer distinguish earnest question from trolling anymore.

Exactly. That is why it is funny. The bridge troll was pulling a bait-and switch on Arthur by trolling him with two easy questions, then sticking him with something so arcane that it would be unanswerable. That's why he won all the time. That is, until Arthur asked for clarification regarding the particular type of swallow, because, duh, there are different types of swallows and some are faster than others. The implication is that Arthur might actually know their respective air speed velocities, which takes it from funny to hilarious.

It is just one of many ridiculous things that comprise that film, which, by the way, is a comedy. Or did you not notice that Arthur doesn't actually ride a horse but instead hops around with a guy making clip-clop noises behind him? Or that the terrible beast that tears men to shreds is a little bunny?

I guess I don't understand why this particular ridiculous line from a comedy filled with ridiculous things vexes you so. But I got to watch the bunny scene again, so I had some fun.

True, but then there's this, from scene 1:

GUARD #1:  Listen, in order to maintain air-speed velocity, a swallow needs to beat its wings 43 times every second, right?
  ARTHUR:  Please!
  GUARD #1:  Am I right?
  ARTHUR:  I'm not interested!
  GUARD #2:  It could be carried by an African swallow!
  GUARD #1:  Oh, yeah, an African swallow maybe, but not a European swallow, that's my point.
  GUARD #2:  Oh, yeah, I agree with that...
  ARTHUR:  Will you ask your master if he wants to join my court at Camelot?!
  GUARD #1:  But then of course African swallows are not migratory.
  GUARD #2:  Oh, yeah...
  GUARD #1:  So they couldn't bring a coconut back anyway...

Which brings us to the larger issue: The Snow Dog should have replied "What do you mean? An African or an Antarctic penguin?"

But, we'll just let it slide for the sake of harmony. Can't we all just get along?
