Obviously.

Perhaps they didn't look for them in the sub-level lair..

So they just kept building even after Mario Lemieux got a big enough payday to not move the team?

I see what you did there.

Kemper Arena was a dump though and did need to be replaced. But Sprint Center is definitely underutilized.

If I lived there, I'd be enjoying that sweet, sweet Google Fiber, not standing in the rain in a construction zone.

Maybe the realized they were going to be living in Jackson County, and decided to give it up.

Imagine there's no heaven penguins
It's easy if you try
No hell below us
Above us only sky

Flea circus owners seeing where this goes.

They should have had a couple of guys in costumes hopping around.
Or
You do intend to have penguins on your penguin tour, right?

Maybe not flocking toward the penguin exhibit as much as fleeing from a massive gang fight in another part of the zoo.

Dear Jerk: Maybe not flocking toward the penguin exhibit as much as fleeing from a massive gang fight in another part of the zoo.


It was funny. I was in KC the other week and KMBZ had someone on biatching about how the Zoo's free day or whatever it was called brought out the troublemakers and that people thought there shouldn't be any more free days at the Zoo.

I say it's funny because I live near St. Louis where the Zoo there is always free and never seems to have the trouble that the KC Zoo did the other week.

It's probably not the zoo per se, but rather the habits of the troublemakers in each city.

But for some reason the St. Louis Zoo can handle that better than the KC Zoo even though they don't charge their visitors admission.

I guess the St. Louis Zoo is better prepared for that than KC Zoo is.

This penguin has failed to learn the most
important lesson of surviving killer whales,
sea lions and zoo visitors:
how not to be
seen.

That's why it is about to blow up.

This penguin is very close to mastering basic
disguise, but you can still tell it's a
penguin and not a chicken.

It too is about to blow up.

These penguins have mastered disguise with bells on.
However, they still think that smoking is cool.

They will die a slow painful death from emphysema.

And then they will blow up.

Of course, they've had plenty of free days until that point.  It's part of the whole "appreciation for the counties that approved a tax to fund the zoo" thing.  Not a bit of problem during any of them.

CSB: They filled their segment with stock footage from a previous free day over a year ago, featuring a long shot of my wife and daughter.

Can't they just hire some short guys to wear tuxedos and waddle about? FTF them.
