Nope, I'm thinking penquin pancakes. Some nice warm cherry sauce and whipped cream...

Save a seat for me on the bus.

As God is my witness, I thought penguins could fly.

I'd serve penguin shusi, on ice.

And the penguin would no doubt appreciate being served sushi, on ice -- it'll remind him of home.

I almost posted that. But your version is less cumbersome than mine was to be.

There's a much dirtier version of this joke. Trust me, the guy isn't worried about merely running the nun/penguin over.

I like the pic the Startle-Gram had, of a woman walking around with a penguin under her arm. I'm not sure if she's about to swat it for the escape attempt.

"Bad penguin! Bad!"

He he he. That's how it looked to me too. Oh and the line "Bad penguin! Bad!" just cracks me up. Thanks.

Did the penguins have AFLAC to cover any expenses not covered by their regular insurance? I mean, I am sure they barely make ends meet as is, but a car accident can really set a decent, hard working penguin back.


Can you imagine being the first cops on the scene?
