    Dead Penguins - I never knew this!




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

    Where do
    they go?

    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 maintain 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."
    "Freeze a jolly good fellow."





    Then, they kick him in the ice hole.


    The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing

    Hmmm, I seem to remember a story in a similar vein about how to catch a polar bear...!
    It seems like in this "industry" common sense is not all that common!
