The poor old Penguin is always the subject of some joke or other. It’s really unfair in my opinion.
I heard the other day that Penguins mate for life. That doesn’t really surprise me I guess, because they all look exactly alike. Its not like they are going to meet a better looking Penguin someday is it.
And then that walk. How they can walk for miles waddling from side to side escapes me. I bet even Charlie Chaplin couldn’t do his Penguin walk for more than 1/4 mile without breaking a hip.
Penguin jokes are also really terrible aren’t they!
I heard one the other day that went something like “Why are Penguins good race drivers? Because they’re always in the pole position of course”. Well that made me groan, how about you?
Then there’s this one, pretty much a classic groaner now “Why did the Penguin cross the road? It was the chickens day off”. Terrible!
Probably one of the worst Penguin jokes though, although I did titter a tiny bit, is “What do you get when you cross a Penguin and an Alligator? I don’t know, but don’t try to hug it!”
What do you think of Penguins? Got any good Penguin jokes or Penguin stories for us? If so, please leave us a comment.
