Another e-mail joke

Wonder no more
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 maintaining 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."

"Then they kick him in the ice hole."


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

You must have some great resources! This just cracked me up.

Dear Patty ~~ Good one - that will
teach him to sing "Freeze a jolly good fellow." I really thought
you were going to tell us the whys
and wherefores of penguins.
Sue and Bob (or rather Bob) sends me
lots of fwds too, but I don't post too many of them, just a few mild ones. Take care my friend,
Love, Merle.

Ha! Like Abe, now I know where dead penguins end up. Haha. Very funny.

Have a nice evening, Patty.

You really are so intelligent to know all that stuff.

Love you for that.

So does that mean, with all this global warming, that when the ice melts, we will have dead penguins dotting the icebergs?
