Antarctic Compassion

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

Well, 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 maintaining 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.”

Then they kick him in the ice hole.

What?! You really didn’t believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?


  1. To Laugh or Not to Laugh ~ That is the Question. 🙂

    And I thought you were going to have some profound post on Penguins,

  2. You, not know anything about penguins? Well, perhaps only the Hawaiian ones.

    But Amoeba now, he must know EVERYTHING about ’em, right?

    Groan, by the way

  3. Nice one. And don’t forget the Penguin that was thrown into the lion cage at the zoo. It survived, though. The lions couldn’t get the wrapper off.

    (Do you have Penguin chocolate bars over there? If not, this didn’t work)

  4. how considerate of the penguins to store food for the polar bears when they immigrate from the arctic after all the ice melts…
