Swiping Rocks

Some colonies on some beaches just don’t have enough rocks of the right size to go around among adelie nests. So they swipe them from each other. I had mentioned how they will play clips of adelie’s doing this in documentaries and someone asked to see one so here you go. This is a clip from Antarctica: IMAX of an adelie colony, complete with rock swiping and silly music.

    LOL the vid is so cute! and wallys gunna get them into truble i bet 😀

    Everybody loves silly music. And I agree with CL, Wally is going to end up getting them into some heap of trouble!

  • Phizlo

    Actually, I think Wally is going to be okay if he asks very, very, very politely because if he doesn’t . . . he’s gone.

  • Canadian Mooseman

    I say wally goes up to the rocks, takes a couple walks off, osbone looks, tries to calm the big penguin down, and then gets pounded instead of wally.

  • Phizlo

    Oh, yeah, I forgot, the video is very cool and the ending was the best part.

  • BriaN

    Do they pronounce adelie right in the video? It sounds weird…

  • Weird Lurker

    Nah, Wally is going to be fine. He’s a polar bear…and he did go through Polar Bear training. A polar bear can easily tear a penguin with no scratchy parts easily.

  • Weird Lurker

    Oh shoot I take that back. If Wally avoids the feet he’s ok.

    Hehe, whatever. Its Osborne’s world, all he has to do is punch that fat ol’ penguin in the face and make off with the loot. You know, cause Osborne’s a ninja and all…

    if wally taped his head i’m sure it would echo.

  • Canadian Mooseman

    I bet…………….These polar bear secret society ninja dudes will fall outta the sky and help wally. Well maybe not.

  • Canadian Mooseman

    I say the penguin looks tough for defense, but really couldn’t hurt a fly.

  • Hannah

    hey! I’ve seen that IMAX Antarctica movie before!
    I saw it at the Pacific Science Center!
    They showed Emperor penguins on it too, but they didn’t give them silly music.

    well anyway great comic. no predictions from me.

    “I bet…………….These polar bear secret society ninja dudes will fall outta the sky and help wally. Well maybe not. ”

    All hangs on how far they fell.

  • Anonymous

    i think wally will ask that penguin for some rocks and end up with a sad face or a black eye

  • Sheena

    Yeah, new comic! Cute video, but I predict that if Wally steals some of those rocks and Osbourne (which is his rightful name) tries to comfort that monster penguin, then this comic will probably have to be changed to Wally and Rocks.

  • Sheena

    P.S. Hannah, how’s the movie?

  • Canadian Mooseman

    Well, lets say these ninja dude just fall on top of the penguin and squish him.

  • Phizlo

    If the huge penguin’s head echos, that means he’s stupid. So if he’s stupid, Wally could just take the rocks from him without him noticing.

    P.S. Could Max(Penguinus Maximus) be related to him?

    NOW I see why you didn’t want to use the “On the Rocks” title anymore…

  • Sev

    I say, Phizlo, why do you assume that just because the penguin is big and scary, he is stupid? That is a hurtful stereotype and I’d thank you not to make light of it.

  • Canadian Mooseman
