Penguin Grave

by Sherry Riter in Humor


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”

“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”

“Then they kick him in the hole in the ice.”

You really didn’t believe that I knew anything about penguins, did you!

Do you know how to catch a Penguin?

You cut a hole in the ice.

You open a can of peas and place a ring of peas around the cut hole.

When the penquin comes up to take a pea,

you kick him in the ice hole!

That was so funny! 😉 and cute! I love penguins! We have studied them a couple times and I never thought about penguin after life! 😉 That joke that your first commenter made… I admit – it came to my mind as soon as I read your post… so I laughed when I saw that!! 😉

PS I had a technical problem with leaving behind the url for the blogspot blog I signed up for but don't use! so if you tried to find me I am sorry! 😉 I now know how to leave behind my correct url when commenting! 😉
