    I think we need to round up some ransom money to get Pengwuino back. His contributions to the forum have been too valuable to lose.

    I'll chip in a nickel. :biggrin:

    Search for Pengwuino takes ominous turn

    ...to offer as a reward for the safe return of the 9-pound South African jackass penguin...

    Looks like Pengwuino, but doesn't sound like Pengwuino...

    I hadn't noticed the resemblance before, but sure enough, according to the article, Toga is a jackass penguin. :biggrin:

    Poor little penguin. I'd be worried the chances are even slimmer if he's been released into the river rather than being kept by someone, since now he'll have to expend more energy swimming and keeping warm, etc. :frown: They've been covering it on the news here even. The zoo even was willing to take him back "no questions asked" the first night, just hoping to get him back while still healthy.

    Who would do such a thing? :grumpy: (the real penguin thief I mean). I hope next time he tries to steal a polar bear instead. And it eats him.

    Toga! Toga! Toga!

    I can almost imagine the penguin fights going on in the basement with hot women tending the beer :rolleyes:

    I fear for Pengwuino's health. The kidnappers may not be familiar with the particular requirements for jackass pengwuin health:

    It's hard to figure out where the kidnappers might be hiding him, but .... "Mr. Popper hired a serviceman to drill air holes in the refrigerator door." That sounds pretty suspicious to me.

    Speaking of which, did you folks hear the joke about the Pope, the 7 dwarves and the penguin? Pretty funny. I read it in the off-topic forum of my motocross forum site (thumpertalk.com).... :lol: Sorry to hear about Penguino and the dung. Yuck.

    This is really upsetting, the penguin is a baby that has to be fed by it's parents that place the food directly into its throat. It is unable to feed by itself. They think someone dumped the baby into the river where it will slowly starve to death. :cry:
