A Police Officer

saw a man walking down the road followed by 20 penguins. "Take those penguins to the Zoo" ordered the officer. The following day he saw the same man followed by the 20 penguins again. He shouted "I thought that I told you to take those penguins to the Zoo". The man replied "I did. It was fantastic. Today we are going to the beach". Have you been followed by any penguins lately?

Many penguins and we have fun too. It's the police officers that concern me more. They don't realise that their 'simple' instructions, if abided by, make them apear as idiots I have great respect for them as they are only doing their job but sometimes those that try to imitate them should really think and make sure they have everything connected before spurting out their wisdom. "Don't walk on the grass" is typical. Give me wings and I'll fly or maybe I should run?

For fear of being culturally offensive, I'm surrounded by penguin like people every day here! The clothing that's worn by many really does sometimes resemble them from a distance and I'm ashamed to say that this is a term I've used before. It's all tongue-in-cheek anyway, so I hope no one reads these comments and gets funny on me. I'm not aware of any following me as of yet though, but I'll pay more attention from this point on.

Not so chilly. They were having an El Nino event.... Galapagos is on the Equator anyway. These penguins had to take off their fur coats.

oh my no, dont think so. I would capture one at least just to have a pet, but nope, no penguins have followed me. one of my fellow residents, a young man, has the cutest little shaggy doggie he named Annie Laurie. she makes a beeline for me when she sees me sitting in the vistors lounge. she has hair that flops down over her bright little eyes. she will get up on the sofa where I sit, and push at my arm to pet her, then she]plops herself on my lap and gives her owner a look that says I\ want to visit this lady,so chill huh. he calls to her and she gives him another dirty look so he has to come,attach her leash and lift her off my lap. she looks at me and I would swear she is grinning. what a nice little dog.

Now no animal should jump on the furniture or a human unless absolutely certain that they can hold their own in conversation Hatley. She's a smart little dog.

That's funny every time I hear it! A really classic joke is a treasure. I remember reading "Mr. Popper's Penguins" as a child and being delighted when further adventures came out in a new book. My first experience with a sequel! Nope, penguins don't follow me but they wouldn't be overly uncomfortable here lately. This weekend is the first full weekend of warm weather, if the forecasts are to be believed. Summer temps here are usually in the 80's and 90's and yet we had the second coldest July in history!

Do you think penguins could survive Texas summers? I ask because I was seriously thinking about getting a few of them to follow me around.

Why not. I'm sure if you slip them the odd ice cube, or even one that isn't odd, they'd be fine.

Thats funny I haven't seen real penguins in my life as I live in a tropical climate country so penguins do not exists here. I would love to go to Antaratica and see the penguins there in the future but I do not have any idea when will that be.
@p1kef1sh (45647)

You may be able to see some in a zoo Sophie. They can adapt to temperate climates but I'm not sure about tropical ones.

I have been to many zoos including to some zoo in other Asian countries but I have not seen any. Maybe if I go to zoos in US or in Europe.

Oh dear, this must have been late a night, a very bad dad joke. Not often followed by penguins as they objet to being eaten. I sometimes have problems with a large dory fish, a pumpkin and a confused 'roo who say she's a rie. I'd like to eat them sometimes but they're poisonous.
@p1kef1sh (45647)
