I don’t have much to write about. I got a haircut Friday morning. I had a dream about Youppi on the beach that night.
Yesterday, the wife sent me a link to this BBC article.
Which punch line do you like best?
- That’s why Antarctic scientists don’t wear tuxedoes.
- Not surprising, and explains why whole chickens are banned in Antarctic research stations.
- Obviously, the seal couldn’t find a vacuum cleaner.
- Thank God we have thumbs.
I like this bit from the article:
Chinstrap penguins occasionally indulge in homosexual behaviour, and adelie penguins sometimes “prostitute” themselves to get stones for nest-building; while one in seven emperor penguins will change partners from one year to the next.
But generally, king penguins lead straightforward sex lives: males and females pair up for years on end.
Like Elvi observed, it’s not as if the penguin had any say in the matter.
