Dead Penguins - I never knew this!

Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica ? Where do they go? Wonder no more!

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

The penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact

with its offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice,

using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.

The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:



"Freeze a jolly good fellow."
"Freeze a jolly good fellow."


You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?


It's so easy to fool OLD people. I am sorry, an urge came over me that made me do it!!!

Oh quit whining! I fell for it, too! :eek:

All the way to the end, hook, line and sinker. Why no dead penguins ? Perhaps they taste good barbecued and cannibalized ?
But where would penguins keep matches ?

There's been a big bust up in the biscuit tin! A bandit called rocky who was crackers hit a penguin over the head with a club, tied him to a wagon wheel with a blue ribband, kidnapped a trophy and made his breakaway in a taxi. The police say rocky was last seen just after eight by a viscount from maryland hobnobbing with a ginger nut Unfortunately the police have not got a crumb of evidence.

I was once bitten on the bum by a penguin.
They have very sharp edges on their beaks!

Hi Sharon. Where did you meet your penguin?

I was surprised when I saw there was lots in South Africa. :eek:

Boulders Beach, Simonstown South Africa, near Cape Town. It's a famous spot for penguins. There are signs warning you to check under you car before driving away as they like to sleep in the shade.

I once new a guy who worked for the British Trust for Ornithology, when he first told me he was working with penguins in South Africa I thought he was having me on.

You don't see the penguins unless you look under the cars.
You don't see the bears unless you step on the cracks in the pavement.
