As everyone here at PF knows, penguins are a rather shifty lot.

In this BBC documentary, it is proven beyond reasonable doubt that they are thieves, as well, caught red-beaked on camera.

I thought deviant birds were sent to the Arctic and the polar bears??

A bird that big should be able to serve 8.

Thanks, I never seen this one before. I thought I have watched all BBC videos!

You live three and a half million kilometres north of civilization and don't know that penguins are from the south pole*? Get your nose out of that accelerator's capacitor bank and smell the fish. :tongue:

* And Africa, and Argentina... yeah, I know... shut up...

A bird that big should be able to serve 8.
:rofl:

Dibs on the wishbone... :uhh:

I sure do.
The punishment is vested in the Transarctic Banishment Act for Baleful Birds, section 6d.
(Yet another resolution from our oh-so-beloved UN..)

Can you provide a link to that? (If it's written in Norweedish, you'll have to supply a translation.)




Evo, does your daughter have any idea of what she started with that simple utterance?

Under all those feathers and fat they're pretty skinny. Tough too.

Tough too.
Irrelevant to me. As soon as the ex started buying cheap steaks, I switched from charcoal to thermite in my barbecue. I can tenderize a brick in that thing.

Doesn't that give everything a metallic taste? I'm not sure how that would go with all the fat. Ever cooked anyone's goose on that thing before?

There was a story on the NBC evening news tonight about little blue penguins affected by spilled oil. Volunteers are knitting little pull-over sweaters for them. It seems that even after being de-greased in warm water and detergent, enough oil remains in their feathers to poison the little guys when they try to preen themselves and loft their feathers. The sweaters prevent preening and help keep the penguins healthy enough to be re-introduced to the wild after cleaning.

Is there a bigger font that you can use for "CUTE"? Some of the little sweaters are so clever, too. One of the little guys in the news story was wearing a sweater that looked like a tuxedo. Too cool!

Lie, and hide the cleaver until they are distracted.
