Oh just cheer up already.

Maybe you should, I don't know, give them enrichment toys; like a normal zoo would. Or maybe put a bunch of "Doe In Heat" urine on the female penguins; that will surely liven things up. Or pick them up an tickle their bellies. If YouTube is any judge; they really like that.

Depression trifecta in play. Quit moping.

Or maybe, you know, not keep creatures native to South America in F*CKING ENGLAND.

You can always try giving it a tickle.

On a completely unrelated note, except from a pharmaceutical point, and possibly for those with an interest in brachiopod love lives, giving Prozac to certain species of clams will immediately turn them sexually active and cause them to release eggs and sperm in prodigious amounts.

They're not used to this hemisphere, so it's probably Bipolar disorder...

"Well, officer, I took them to the zoo yesterday, and they sure enjoyed that.  Today, we're going to the pictures!"

If it's getting penguins down just imagine what the lack of sun is doing to the people. No wonder brits hide the knives.
 
2014-02-06 10:04:57 PM  
Is the penguin at least stamped "property of the zoo?"

That was adorable.

How about using sun lamps instead?
 
2014-02-06 10:19:26 PM  
The squirrels in my neighborhood are starting to run in front of cars again. We need to resume giving them Prozac.

Of course they're depressed. They're British.

Penguin depression can be assessed on a spectrum; it's not all black and white.
 
2014-02-06 11:35:57 PM  
...but with penguins, at least it's safe to say that taking the meds won't leave them flying high.
 
2014-02-06 11:37:44 PM  
Maybe it was in bondage.
What's a Zooloft?
 
2014-02-06 11:44:34 PM  
Of course no one would ever think to/agree to simply putting them back where they belong.
 
2014-02-07 12:06:56 AM  
Well, considering one of my cats was prescribed Prozac by our vet for a couple months until we determined the real cause of her litter box avoidance issues (I shiat you not), this is not so far fetched.

A place where the barn owls roost.

...but how could they be depressed whilst wearing such nice formalwear??

That doctor sounds like a quack.

Well, we can't tell.  After all, it only looked like he shouldn't be depressed.  It was, in reality, just ice cream.
