I’m sure you’ve wondered about this.

Every so often it’s necessary to rid the mind of all the bad news and refresh it with something more uplifting. Dead penguins…uplifting? Actually, yes. Keep reading. There’s a lesson here for all of us.

Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica? Where do they go? No, they all don’t get eaten by predators.

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.”

You really didn’t believe that I knew anything about penguins, did you?
