Penguins

ISN'T SCIENCE FASCINATING - 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."

You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?

It's so easy to fool OLD people.

I am sorry, an urge came over me that made me do it!!!

Oh quit whining I fell for it, too.

I haven't been to the Antarctic but have seen many Penguins in Zoo's! They are pretty messy critters as far as waste management is concerned. I wonder if in the Wild all that accumulation of poop is causing the Glaciers to Melt!

Anyone traveling with Penguin's. Which is better - side or front door - gas or diesel. If diesel - front or DP? I would think MH better but how do they do in 5th wheel - TT or popup? Do CG's restrict based on type of penguins or weight?

Why are there never "Big Foots" graves/bones found?

Little know fact: the bones of the Bigfoot are invisible. When walking along, minding your own business and you suddenly stumble over nothing - you have most like found the bones of Bigfoot.
They vaporize when disturbed so you can't go back and pick them up after the fact.
