On parade

Widely reported elsewhere, but just in case you missed it: penguin receives regimental knighthood at Edinburgh Zoo.


  1. The best part is that it's not the same penguin!

  2. You've got to love the little waddler's attitude, especially when he stops on his way to pick up his knighthood to stare at one of the guards ("Hey, are you one of those guys who are supposed to just remain stock still no matter what, like even if a penguin is standing a foot away, looking right at you, you still can't move or anything? What if a penguin were to take a whiz on your shoe, then could you move or say anything? Ha ha, don't worry, bro, I'm just messin' with you!") and at the end, when the woman who I assume is his agent has to steer him from running off before the ceremony is over. "Dude, be cool, a lot of people had to fill out a lot of paperwork to make this happen. Humor them for ten more seconds and I promise there's a fish in it for you later.")

  3. Thanks -- I had missed it!
