this line is classic:

"They're a pretty quiet lot. I think that any one penguin would soon be put down by the others if it tried to assert its superiority over the others."

would that humans had evolved so...

I personally liked, "...if Nils Olav was aware of his status, he did not show it."

PEN-PEN!

Pablo was saying that he saw footage of the ceremony. The Olav was being escorted down a red carpet by an honor guard.

It's effing brilliant, if you ask me.

I want a pet penguin that outranks my aunt, sure...

Well, he is a "king" penguin...

What do they promote Kings to? Emperor?

But I AM Napoleon Bonaparte!

Which reminds me of "Escape from Elba", the bizarrely-premised Cheapass Game where everyone's Napoleon (or at least you think you are; maybe you're mental patients) trying to escape from Elba (or at least you think it's Elba) through creative word-crafting.

I love Cheapass Games. Love 'em.

Incidentally, I got your message, but not until very late last night. Will call soon.

I always liked "Devil Bunny". Unfortunately, it's a REALLY stupid game unless you say "Devil Bunny! Devil Bunny!" while you're moving him. Even then, it's still kind of stupid, but it gets more fun.

They're all kind of stupid, but how can you not love "Kill Dr. Lucky" or "Ebola Monkey Hunt"?

Player improvisation always makes things better. ^_^

It said that they were keeping it quiet - I wonder if that's because they enjoying mocking the English for giving the Tower of London ravens a military rank. Also, one of the ravens is now named Baldrick. Yes, after Blackadder's Baldrick.

One of the ravens should be named Codpiece.

Can you believe that they clip their wings? I think it's cheating.
teddywookie From: teddywookie Date: August 18th, 2005 07:09 pm (UTC) (Link)
The raven Codpiece would be pretty darn amusing. And yeah, what's with the clipping? If someone offered me the position of hanging out in the sun with all the raw meat and blood-soaked biscuits I could fit in my face, I would in there like swimwear.

All for the sake of a legend of impregnability... fie on them, I say.

o_O

What if they fall off the tower?!

They never leave the grounds of the interior. They're rendered effectively flightless.

They live a good life, albeit one in bondage.

I think it's cheating. You know somebody's gonna just steal them some day.

In today's climate, they're likely to be tried as terrorists for plotting the fall of the English nation...

Norweigans are an odd lot... And your link is a terrible pun... ;-P
komos From: komos Date: August 18th, 2005 08:58 pm (UTC) (Link)
What now? I never pun.

Out of curiosity, Do you know if "king penguins" are the same as "emporer penguins?"
komos From: komos Date: August 18th, 2005 09:27 pm (UTC) (Link)
Emperor penguins are slightly larger and have more orange on their breast.

I'll definitely be passing that on to someone who will be moving to Norway herself sometime soon ^_^

I think everyone should know.
