Did 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 maintain 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."

Janner, meeting up at that last watering hole would be fine by me assuming I get a leave pass, but in fairness to the mem-sahib I was incredibly wobbly. I ate my tea off the carpet as I'd dropped it twice and couldn't be arsed to pick it up a third time so she did have a point.

You mean the RBL? Didn't seem to be a lot of room, though Nutty might not be coming this year so that wouldn't be such a problem. Sol. did mention making a visit. I will be staying in the Quality Hotel this year so somewhere handy to that would be fine. Have you heard from JC lately?

It was that bar up by the Hoe, some sort of drinking club. I don't think it was RBL though. Haven't seen or heard from JC for ages, maybe Wits has some idea.
