At first, I could not understand what the little penguin doing with a handbag?
My beloved Pauline told me the answer. The penguin with handbag is the wife.
The noisy devil with cymbals is her husband - wasn't it always so?

Above is one of the funniest pictures of penguins Will and Guy have ever seen.
In particular note two nice touches; such as you can see the shadow of the
penguin on the ice. Secondly there are two pics of 'No diving'; my point
is that it does not look like a fake picture of a penguin diving onto the ice.

Surfing - Clever Penguin
Ever wonder where dead penguins 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 penguins have a very strong
community bond. They are very committed to their family and will mate for
life. They also maintain a form of compassionate contact with their
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 freshly dug grave and sing ........ 'freeze a jolly good

Dave Foley, MBE, is a friend of Guy and Will. He left the Royal Navy, after serving 33 years, some years ago as a Lieutenant. This is a story he told when he was a Petty Officer
mechanic on HMS 'Pompey'
[name made up to protect the guilty].
The ship was returning to Devonport from a tour of duty as a protection ship to the Antarctic research group. They were asked to transport some penguins back to the
UK. The penguins were about a metre tall. [Height is important to the story].
As the ship arrived in the tropics and had begun to cross the equator it was realised that the penguins might not survive in
such high temperatures. Quite sensibly the penguins were put in the showers used by the NCOs [non commissioned officers]; this group included Dave.
The penguins were a lively and friendly bunch and
readily made friends with the sailors, pecking and waddling around and enjoying the showers and running water, which was keeping them cool.
Problems arose when the sailors went for their shower; the
penguin's beaks were at a dangerous level, which resulted in all NCOs having to shower in their swimming trunks.
Two penguins in the above picture are standing on an ice floe. The first penguin says, 'You look
like you're wearing a tuxedo.' The second penguin says, 'What makes you think
The Fiordland Crested Penguin, has prominent bushy eyebrows, hence its nickname of the 'Groucho Marx' penguin. Moreover the 'Groucho Marx' is amongst the most endangered of the 17 species of penguin,
its natural habitat is in the cold waters off southern New Zealand and Australia. Latin name: Eudyptes pachyrhynchus
One rare 'Groucho Marx' penguin was found on an Australian beach after a 2,000 km swim.
The poor tired penguin was saved by Sydney zookeepers who named him 'Munroe'. It was at Norah Head, a sleepy beachside hamlet about 80 km (50 miles) north of Sydney, where 'Murnroe' washed up, he was exhausted and suffering respiratory problems after his
swim across the Tasman sea.
Restored to ruddy good health after medical checks and a steady diet of pilchards, Munroe will soon be snuggling up to 'Chalky' and 'Milford, who happen to be
the only two females in captivity. Penguins are monogamous so, let us hope that at least one female produces a healthy crèche of Fiordland Crested chicks.
And Behind You Too
Just a shadow of his former self!
A Mexican newspaper reports that bored Royal Air Force pilots stationed on the Falkland Islands have devised what they consider a marvellous new game. Noting that airplanes fascinate the local
penguins, the pilots search out a beach where the birds are gathered and fly slowly along it at the water's
edge. Perhaps ten thousand penguins turn their heads in unison watching the planes go by, and
when the pilots turn around and fly back, the birds turn their heads in the opposite direction, like spectators at a slow-motion tennis match. Then, the paper reports, 'The pilots fly out to sea and
directly to the penguin colony and over fly it. Heads go up, up, up, and ten thousand penguins fall over gently onto their backs.'
[Article by Audubon Society Magazine]
Gay rights protesters in Germany are up in arms because the Bremerhaven's
Zoo plans to test the sexual orientation of six male Humboldt penguins which have displayed homosexual
But zoo director Heike Kueck said, 'gay groups worldwide have been cursing us since that announcement'
The zoo says it just wants to encourage the rare Humboldt penguins to breed. The males
have been observed trying to mate with each other and trying to hatch offspring out of stones.
know whether the three male pairs are really homosexual or whether they have just bonded because of a
shortage of females', said Mrs Kueck, quoted by Germany's
Der Spiegel news magazine.
Gay groups insisted that penguins had a right to form couples without human interference, she said.
'Nobody here wants
to forcibly separate homosexual couples', she said.
