This reminds me of when we first-graders put on a play about a young bunny who refused to hop until he realized how fun it was. It also reminds me of when we third-graders went on a field trip to see a series of playlets based on short stories written by children, and the first one was about a young penguin that was afraid of swimming until he did it anyway to rescue his crush, named Petunia.

What an awwwww-inspiring story...

...if he's even still alive to help out.

"He has become quite famous because it's quite unusual for penguins not to like the water," he said.

You don't farkin' say! This statement of the obvious lowered my opinion of the human race a couple notches.

But how is he on the telly-vision?

I'd call Bob Saget because Farce of the Penguins was hilarious.

if he cannot get into the water, he will die.

Of course it's afraid of water.

The chocolate will melt and the biscuit will get soggy.

That's mean.

Penguins are practically chicken.

And they had to use the picture where he is scratching his ass.

Oh, intercourse the penguin!

Sounds like natural selection working to me... except that we're stopping it. Allowing this prig to reproduce will kill his kind. Oh, wait, we're keeping him in a zoo. My bad.

Kentucky? They should have named him Pittsburgh.
2009-01-24 12:08:19 AM  
Why would Brits name a penguin Kentucky? That's the real story....

Little known fact, I have jumped on Morgan Freeman's bed.

Do you really need to navigate a sailboat that's in a hallway? It seems pretty straightforward.

/couldn't resist

I got that, doc.

Is it related to Chilly Willy?

I've often wondered how many Giant Pandas simply can't stand the taste of bamboo.

I watched March of the Penguins with my niece. I remember it mentioning sea lions were their predators. Yet, months later, I was watching a National Geographic show on TV, and the penguins and sea lions were hanging out together, peacefully. Made me hungry for a penguin-stuffed sea lion.
