I've gotta be honest with you...

I'm really surprised that I didn't get much response to my information on the mating habits of penguins.

Do you secretly think I'm whacked and decided not to comment on my bizarre observation? Did anyone wonder WHY I mentioned penguins engaging in intercourse?

Well, even if you didn't really care about my comment, I'm going to explain why I know about penguins in heat.

On Wednesday I accompanied my daughter on her kindergarten class trip to the aquarium.

As we sat in front of the penguin exhibit, our tour guide was giving a little lecture on the "ins and outs" of penguins. WHAT A COINCIDENCE...because as he explained the "ins and outs" of penguins, there were two penguins lying on the ground GOING AT IT!!!

The whole time he had his back to the display, a penguin porno show was going on. Unbelievably none if the children commented on, or even noticed the lovemaking session going on right before their very eyes.

The mom next to me did, however, notice.

As the class moved on to the seal exhibit we asked out tour guide if the one penguin on top of the other bouncing up and down rhythmically was indeed attempting to impregnate his girlfriend. We were correct. It's springtime, and the penguins are going at it like rabbits.

So there you have it. I've got nothing more to say.

I've heard of March of the Penguins, but not "Uglies-Bumping of the Penguins". Interesting indeed.

Found you through that Yak guy. He mentioned that you're from Jersey, so how can I NOT stop by here.

Take care,

You're luck it was only penguins. We were at the zoo one time when the camels were going at it. They are LOUD and impossible not to notice.

Lol, actually I DID have a comment about the penguins but I didn't post it b/c I thought I would be the only weirdo commenting on it! Lol.... I was going to mention something about how it must have been *good* for them since their eyes were BULGING out ;-)

That's hilarious - what an "educational" field trip. :)

Did any have a big one?

Our kids go to the zoo for the 2nd grade field trip. Every single time I have accompanied my kids on this trip, when we stop at the monkey house, or orangatang house, or whatever they are, the monkeys are 1) Going at it and 2) Flinging poo directly at whatever window I am standing at with my group. Sometimes, to break things up, they will eat the poo instead of flinging it at me.

EWWWW EWWWW EWWWWW. In comparison, I think watching Penguins mate would be almost tranquil!

AH! I love the zoo in the spring! too funny!

Mrs. D said...

Chic Chauffer- That is SO right! The last time I went to the zoo a big crowd of 10-ish year old field trip kids were crowded up to the window at the monkey exhibit. So naturally, I went up to see what all the fuss was about. Apparently, one monkey liked having an audience while he mastubated furiously 3 inches from the glass. I was disgusted, the kids around were cracking up.

Just thinking about penguins gags me. The penguin house at the zoo smells so bad... sometimes I just can't do it. I have to tell the kids no, maybe next time.

Bernadette said...

Ah yes, springtime at the zoo. I accompanied a class trip one time and it seemed our tour was timed to catch the animals in action. Even the solo elephant was trying to put a tire on his junk. Master of his own domain!

Maureen said...

I don't know why, but I totally guessed that's what happened. Thank goodness the kids didn't react. I am assuming that most chaperones don't get those types of shows on field trips!

Ah, the innocence of children! ;)

I noticed how romantic penguins were in "March of the penguins"... I tell you, my boy would notice that humping going on... he even turned his head during the movie. And they weren't even doing it the missionary position.

LMAO. I can only imagine.
