ADOPT A PENGUIN
« on: November 13, 2014, 2335 UTC »
I chanced upon this absolutely wonderful website where for a small sum of money, you can adopt your own personal penguin! It seems to be on the up and up and I think it's a great and novel idea for the upcoming holidays! Be the first one on your block! Link below

This is a terrible idea. Have these penguins been defanged? Have they had their poison glands removed? I doubt it.

Someone is going to get killed because of this.

Perhaps not, Al, but they are well-dressed....

Go ahead, get him all riled up. You're not the ones who will have to get him off the roof with a lasso.

I've researched it on the internet and Penguins are basically defenseless unless you disturb their nesting sites...then they attack you with their beaks and wings. Another website said they taste like chicken ;D
Absolutely nothing to be afraid of Al! And they are well dressed...

I think we could devise a popular carnival game out of that...

"Lasso Fansome" has a certain ring to it.
