Penguins Appreciate Art


Apparently needing something to do, the folks at the Kansas City Zoo brought three penguins to the local Art Museum in the name of "providing visual stimulation", and filmed the results:

They saw that they like Caravaggio better than Monet, but I can imagine dialogue for 0.33- 0.38

Penguin 1: I like the way his abstraction suggests the interplay of light and water

Penguin 2: I don't know, I just don't see it.


They ought to bring in the tigers next week, and film that, too.

They're opening the zoo, so field trips are probably done.
