Flipping the bird

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?

  1. That’s why Antarctic scientists don’t wear tuxedoes.
  2. Not surprising, and explains why whole chickens are banned in Antarctic research stations.
  3. Obviously, the seal couldn’t find a vacuum cleaner.
  4. 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.


I’d love to have this, but $2,900 is a bit steep. Do watch the video.

Every click…
...contributes to world domination.
