: Untimely Question

Sometimes you got the right question but you are just asking it at the wrong time.

Penguin Sweaters

A few days ago a reader sent me the link about penguins at the zoo getting exercise. Yesterday the reader’s wife commented with this link here about penguin sweaters. It shows a couple fairy penguins (the smallest penguins) looking cute in some colorful sweaters which are apparently helping absorb oil after they became victims of an oil spill. They say you can even knit these sweaters and send them in yourself to help out. Thanks for the link, I always appreciate people sending in links to penguins (or polar bears) in the news. If you see something, don’t hesitate to drop a note here.

    I don’t even knit sweaters for my grandsons and now I find out I should be knitting them for peguins?!?

  3. Tyler Martin says:

    Yes Julie, and I would like a sweater too, it’s very cold this winter. =)

    Thanks Koen, the comic appears here and is also syndicated at an edutainment site called Hopefully there will be a book collection within the next year or so, after there are enough strips to fill a book. Also, speaking of Funbrain, Wally & Osbourne have taken it by storm today…

    Here’s a bit of unfortunate penguin news – can you believe the sort of people who’d do this sort of thing?

  5. Kevin says:

    Hehe, I find that comic highly amusing. Reminded me highly of the classic Calvin and Hobbes strips where they discuss philosophy while hurtling down a hill in a red wagon or a sled.

    Perchance that was your inspiration?
