I find this relaxing - should I be institutionalized?

Maybe one should be institutionalized if they used this as an excuse holding a penguin wriggling in the air for minutes at a time, like mystelf.

Is that some sort of foreplay, mating dance? I had thought they might explode or some such bad thing but instead found it relaxing...I will see if I can train my children to perform like that.

Jimbob agree but I made one do a double back flip and swan penguin dive gracefully in...not safe for peta maybe.
PS, I bowled one too for a strike, knocking down all ten pins penguins.

So how many can you keep up in the air? And for how long?

...All I wanted was just a Pepsi! Just one Pepsi! And she wouldn't give it to me!

Try dashing their heads against the rocks quonsar. You'll eat dinner much sooner.

Oh well, if this is Be Cruel To Penguins week, then play on.

WEIRD. but well done.


Is this some kind of linux thing?

I like the sound [sounds like my old tricycle actually] more than the penguins. relaxing nonetheless.

linux: I managed to keep four in the air for about 5 seconds.

I was sitting there watching them waddle past, quite peacefully... feeling quite calm and relaxed and placid.

Then I realised you could pick them up, now i'm laughing maniacally as i throw them around the screen. All placidity has left.

What a way to spend the last day at work. Thanks Carlos!

I find it arousing - I should be institutionalized.

I blame Chilly Willy, the little minx.

Where is Pretty_Generic to say "Oh God I'm so lonely" when you need him?

Depends on how much weed you've smoked, how much more you plan on smoking, and how many times you've blinked in the last five minutes.

I opened up the link in a new window and went on reading the FPP's, so when this funny squeaky wagon sound started up, I kind of freaked out.

"WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT?" I thought to myself.
"Jesus Christ! What the hell are they doing in my drive way?!" they being whoever was fucking around outside my house
". . . . . . . Oh, thank god, it's only penguins on the computer." I go refill my gin.

I've always wanted a pet penguin. They have to be the coolest animal on the planet. This is a good substitute until I find a penguin trader.

Jebus...I open a bunch of tabs (Mozilla) from the Front Page and then go through them, and that, well, *noise* started playing. FIrst I thought it was my hamster's wheel. Nope. My speaker sits almost behind my CD burner, and I traced the sound to that area. I was convinced that my burner was dying. Nice joke. I feel like a dipshit.

If you're torturing penguins, don't forget Spaced Penguin. Torture waterfowl AND explore orbital mechanics!
