Like Taking Candy From A Baby

Do people really take candy from babies? Should babies even be eating candy? At any rate, I’m pretty sure Wally does not know the proper way to hold a penguin. Any time I’ve seen people holding them they had them in a “bear” hug…heh. Also for the record, penguins carry rocks with their beaks, Osborne just happens to have amazing flipper dexterity.

Penguins In the News

Long-time reader Sidnaceous sent me a link to this article. Every year penguins drifting out on ice floes end up way north on the beaches of Brazil. It says they are sent to local zoos, but this year there are over a 100 of them and they will be taking a trip back to the Antarctic ocean care of Brazil’s air force and navy. Maybe they are wintering in Brazil (it’s winter down there) because Antarctica is freezing (literally).

Apparently that oil spill I mentioned back in May off the coast of Argentina is still unexplained. Nice. On a good note though, the first batch of rescued and cleaned Magellanic penguins of about 200 survivors are being returned to the sea.

Polar Bears In the News

In an Amsterdam zoo, in the middle of summer, Tatania the polar bear got to play in man-made snow. The snow may end up being a regular treat, especially if the Netherlands continue to see such heatwaves.

Global Warming In the News

LOL. It’s all over the place, I can’t even break it down enough to summerize it here other than to say “please stay tuned to the event of a lifetime when the earth will spontaneously explode into a ball of flames”.

  • io

    that meaning HOLY SWEET WHALE CARCUS! :-)

  • Hannah (penguin freak)

    io, i love the “HOLY SWEET WHALE CARCUS!!!” thing!
    oh, the daily penguin fact:

    The Emperor and the Adelie penguins are
    the only species that live in Antarctica

    and, if anyone has a penguin question, just ask me
    and i’ll probably know the answer! šŸ˜€

  • Hannah (penguin freak)

    and hey Alexis, did you
    mean that in comparison to Wally Osbourne is smal? šŸ˜†

  • Hannah (penguin freak)

    oops i spelled “small” wrong.

  • Alexis :)

    Yeah thats probably what I meant.
    Well anyway, the polar bear fact is coming later today… šŸ˜‰

  • Alexis :)

    no, actually I meant what i said.
    That the ratio of Wally to Osborne;
    if Osborne is normal size, than Wally is really small.

  • Dorlaem

    alexis, I think that’s why it’s called a webcomic =p (or maybe wally’s a kid-polar bear? =p )

  • Sev

    Penguins and Polar Bears don’t talk! What is this nonsense?!

  • SuperVegito

    @Hannah : sry bout spelling your name wrong pleaj fowgive me šŸ˜€ btw ur name is cool it can be spelt backwards and its still Hannah

  • Mysterygal

    Wow. I feel bad for the lil’ penguin. :(

  • Mysterygal

    Then again it would make a good lawn gnome…..creep people and penguins away from their home…:-D

  • alex

    i just saw this article and wondered what you thought about it.

  • Hannah (penguin freak)

    its ok SuperVegito, thanks for apologizing.
    yeah I think my name is cool too, its the same backwards its still Hannah. šŸ˜€

    well, anyway, the penguin fact:

    Emperor penguin are almost 4 feet tall.

    and apparently Emperor penguin are more popular than polar bears
    because an Emperor penguin cruise is $8495, and a polar bear cruise is only $1130!!!

  • Hannah (penguin freak)

    and in my last comment i meant penguins with an “s” at the end…..

  • Alexis :)

    I know that Dorleam. :roll:
    Yeah I used to like envy you Hannah because I had problems with spelling my name backwards. (Yes I know that was weird) šŸ˜Æ

    Here’s your polar bear fact:
    Polar bears live on average, 30 years.

    Thats was your daily polar bear fact!!!
