THIS JUST IN: Giant Gentoo Penguin Terrorizes Tourists!

We’ve got confirmed reports of a huge Gentoo Penguin attacking tourists in Antarctica. This photo by Tim Fisher shows one poor soul literally being picked off like he was a snack. Which…he ended up becoming. More as this develops.

Spotted by Smedley on NatGeo.

    Absolutely this should be a new movie!!!! I would go to see it, wouldn’t you?

  25. murkle46 says:

    The penguins had electric tentacles that shocked people?

  26. Roger Corman just sent out a press release for this.

  27. Would need to star one or more of the following to be a SyFy movie: John Schneider, Danny Bonaduce, Barry Williams, Tiffany, Debbie Gibson.

  28. Pingu – noooo!

    I would have to say that death by giant penguin noms would certainly be up there on my list of awesome ways to croak

  30. Too fast for me, orcgirl. Thought I might be first with that reference but the hivemind of CO is too powerful. *Tips hat*

  31. At the Mountains of Madness?
