When I saw it, it was "penguin goes apeshit." This is a better title.

I liked the video better when the penguin was just really happy.

Real penguins prefer weighty brass over heavy metal.

A metal penguin can attract quite the following.

It seems odd to Benny Hillify a single penguin, but I did it. So there.

When I first saw that penguin video I thought "so THAT'S what happened to the herring we tried to smuggle the speed in". It's the first penguin I've seen that actually would deserve this.

But seriously, when I saw the title "Heavy Metal Penguin", I thought it'd be about Opus' rock band in "Bloom County". (You DO remember how "Deathtöunge" had to rename themselves "Billy and the Boingers"?)

If he carries on disrupting the neighbourhood like that he may well be hauled in by the chicken police.

That is exactly what it feels like when I over-caffeinate.

That penguin is uncoordinated. I would like to invite that penguin outside to the car park, where I would punch that penguin into a sorry pool of penguin juice. Because that, as a true metal fan, is just how very hard I am.

This is one of those animal videos that makes me happy then sad. At first it's all funny & cute how he's jumping around like a little crazy kid but then I realize that what looks to us like an animal being cute is probably in reality that animal acting out in some kind of distress & I get sad.

Happy Feet?

You can tell this was filmed in Toronto, because there's only one guy in the pit. And he's a penguin, so you know he's from out of town.

(Yeah, I haven't been to a show in years, so how the hell would I know?)

Today is a day? Don't you mean Today is the Day?

Incidentally, great song choice. Here's the official video (careful, some disturbing slaughterhouse footage; something of a commentary on industrialized slaughter).

I want to party with this little dude.

They should put that on the big screen at Consol Energy Center for the Pittsburgh Penguins when they need a kick start or when there's a fight.


Go Penguins!!!

Let me nibble on your buds,
Let me stomple your albino,
Let me graze into your veldt,
I'm your...
