Monty the Penguin

by duncanr

this year, the John Lewis Dept store’s Xmas ad features a penguin called Monty kept as a pet by a little boy

the ad shows then having fun together, but Monty is not a happy bunny

fortunately the little boy knows just what Monty is pining for –

SEX

so he gets him a mail-order bride for Xmas ! 😆

the original ad is a bit twee for my liking – I prefer this parody

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

Penguin More Popular than Lib-Dems

by duncanr

The results of the local elections in the UK have not been goods news for the Conservatives

They have been even worse for the Lib-Dems

Things are in a pretty bad state when your candidate in one ward polls less votes than a guy dressed in a penguin suit !

Happy Feet Gone Forever ?

by duncanr

Ahem, I hate to be the bearer of bad news folks – but Happy Feet, the juvenile penguin that lost it’s way and ended up in New Zealand may have met an untimely end in the belly of a shark.

Nursed back to health and released back into the sea with a tracking device attached to his back to monitor his progress, Happy Feet (as he was nicknamed) has not been heard of since Friday.

This could mean that the little fella has been eaten by a predator or the tracking device has developed a fault (perhaps being knocked out by a solar flare?) or has fallen off (it needs to be out of the water for it’s signal to be detected)

Either way, it’s not good news for those wanting to know that Happy Feet had made his way home
