(Say like any Monty Python character:) “Can’t beleef it- bloody thing here, wot’s it doin,’ yeah? Bit o’ string, mates. In our way! Gonna have a go gettin’ by it, aren’t we then? Who’s ‘wit me?”

Via 22Words..all 22 of ‘em.

Inter-Knitters! The Penguinz Need U!

penguinsKnitters of the Internet! The Penguin Foundation needs you! Well, they need your Sweateuh! If a penguin gets caught in some type of oil spill, they need Little Sweateuhs to keep warm. Back in 2011, they had enough Sweateuhs. Now they need more of ‘em. Let’s hear what Lyn Blom has to say- she is the receptionist at Phillip Island Nature Parks in Victoria, Australia. (Interview with host Red Symons from 774 ABC Melbourne Breakfast- and they call ‘em “Jumpers.” Same diff. G’day.)


Want to knit a Penguin Sweateuh? This link (Opens PDF) shows you how, and also has contact info.

Flappy Bird

We don’t know if the current “Flappy Bird” craze has anything to do with this little guy. But it’s possible.

From TO. P.S. -Watch out for Fake Flappy Birds.

So Who’s Gonna Win The SB?

Everyone has an opinion. What do U say there, Grumpy Cat?

Peyton the Penguin from the Omaha Zoo has made his pick pretty clear.

Hugh and Buffett have made their choices, too.

[Excuse me...Hugh and Buffett? Sounds like an FM morning show. -Ed.]

Well, they’re Manatees, naturally.

Grumpy Cat video spotted on Tastefully Offensive.

Penguins…Being Penguins

You think it’s easy to be a Penguin? It’s not. Penguins tend to fall down, and tip over.

A lot.

Check out the video below, and this live webcam of Penguinz In Antarctica!

“I know they fall (ouch!) but they get back up and they are sooooooo cuuuuuuuuuuuute!!!!! Oh yeah and where i live (Central Wisconsin,) it was 17 degrees below ZERO this morning!!” -Annie M.

No Penguins In The NFL Playoffs?

Kohl The Penguin of the Audubon Aquarium in New Orleans wants to let everyone know who is gonna win in the Saints/Eagles game tonight.
