Emergency Penguin Fix

So, I'm doing a little warm-up on the treadmill to clear my head and a commercial comes on between news segments. It's for a documentary on penguins. I watch the penguins walk, dive in the water, swim, bite each other's beaks and generally waddle about. They're cute, I think. Watching them is kind of relaxing. Then the commercial goes back to the ordering screen and highlights a second video. That's right...not just one penguin film. A pair of them. So the first one won't get lonely on the shelf one presumes.

Then I notice it. FOR RUSH DELIVERY...

LOL Hey, I love penguins as much as the next person, but emergency shipping for a penguin documentary? Except for Danny Devito preparing for a Batman movie, who needs that?

If you're the person who needs your penguins RIGHT NOW, please chime in. I want to know about you because you're fascinating to me.


  1. That is so funny! But I'm worried about the person who does.

  2. Hi Liz!

    Yeah, we live in our instant gratification society. The other day I was ordering books online and I was like..."Do I want the overnight shipping? I kind of do." Then I looked over my shoulder at the 200 books on my to-be-read pile, and decided to go with the free shipping.

  3. Hey Kimber!

    You can download Linux from a lot of different sites… oops, wrong penguin.

  4. Hee hee hee. Morning, Far. I hope you're having a great holiday weekend!

  5. my neighbors' bathroom is all - penguin. paint. stuffed toys. knick knacks. not the kids' bathroom but the guest bathroom. they need their penguin fix!
