This groaner comes to us from Maus’s dad. I’ve never met him, but I like him already!!
Did you ever wonder why you never see dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica?
Ever wonder where they go? Wonder no more!
It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.
The penguins have a very strong community bond. They are very committed to their family and will mate for life.
They also maintain a form of compassionate contact with their offspring throughout its life.
If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried.
The male penguins then gather in a circle around the freshly dug grave and sing….
“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”
