Where do penquins go when they die?

PenguinDid you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in  Antarctica  – where do 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 penguin is very committed to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintaining a form of
compassionate contact with its 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 fresh grave and sing: 

“Freeze a jolly good fellow”

“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”

“Then they kick him in the ice hole.” 
You really didn’t believe that I know anything about penguins, did you!

Thanks Gene

  1. No, I really did believe you knew about penguins! Now I don’t know what to believe! It’s like my whole world has turned inside out, upside down.

    I refuse to believe they kick him in the ice hole! Tell me they gently insert him into the ice hole, all the while telling him how much he will enjoy it in the ice hole, and how they will soon join him in his ice hole, and how good it will feel to just relax and slide into the ice hole.

    Even if it’s a lie, tell this to me : ( :
