Lord of the Penguin

Image hosted by

Those crazy fellows at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo have done it again. I mean, I'm guessing. They may have done nothing before...Meh. Here's the story about an April Fool's joke played on some unsuspecting emperors.

In other penguin news: The Humboldt penguins at Bremerhaven Zoo, whom you may remember me heralding as a triumph of queer penguin sexuality, seem to be swinging. These truly are some fluid chaps, not to mention embracing of cultural diversity. Or are they? Perhaps they feel pressured to give the female Swedish exports some sweet loving? Perhaps they fear the krill supply will be cut if they don't conform to heterosexist expectations of breeding?

On the plus side at least, a spokeswoman from the zoo assures us that "if the male pairs really are gay then they will stay together until they die".

If only human gay males were so committed...

Go get me a bucket of krill and i'll see how it goes.

But you're right, if only we did stay together a lot better. Things could be quite different.
