Penguin Kidnapped

by duncanr

P-p-p-pick up a penguin is a phrase made famous by a series of TV commercials in the 70s for Penguin chocolate biscuits

A punter at The Union pub in Gloucester, England has taken this instruction literally and kidnapped a penguin called Elvis

timthumb (1)The motive ?

Apparently, the kidnapper(s) was/were pissed off with the constant Xmas music assaulting their ears when visiting the pub and are threatening to cut Elvis’s throat if their demand that the music stop is ignored

Sadly for Elvis, unless the kidnapper(s) relent, it looks like his goose is cooked – pub landlord, Matthew Foster, is refusing to stop the music
