Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins on the ice in Antarctica- where do they go?

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 maintaining 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."

Penguins are known to be anti-social outside of thier tribal associates, giving all others a cold shoulder.
Another fact: The Penguin National Anthem is "Waddle I Do?"
Most people are unaware that Penguins love Haiku:

I love you penguin;

so smooth so black so hard oops

you are just a rock

In fact, Sushijima Penguin (a cousin from Japan) tried his had at Haiku:

Writing a haiku
With seventeen syllables
Is very diffic'

Then, of course there's that episode when the Seven Dwarfs visited the Pope...
The Seven Dwarfs go to the Vatican.

"Dopey, my son" says the Pope, "what can I do for you?" Dopey asks, "Excuse me, Your Excellency, but are there any dwarf nuns in Rome?" The Pope wrinkles his brow at the odd question, thinks for a moment and answers, "No, Dopey, there are no dwarf nuns in Rome." In the background, a few of the dwarfs start giggling. Dopey turns round and gives them a glare, silencing them.

Dopey turns back, "Your Worship, are there any dwarf nuns in all of Europe?" The Pope, puzzled now, again thinks for a moment and then answers, "No Dopey, there are no dwarf nuns in Europe." This time, all of the other dwarfs burst into laughter. Once again, Dopey turns around and silences them with an angry glare.

Dopey turns back and says, "Your extreme holiness! Are there ANY dwarf nuns any where at all in the world?' After consulting with his advisers, the Pope responds, "I'm sorry my son, there are no dwarf nuns anywhere in the world." The other dwarfs collapse in a heap, rolling, laughing and pounding the floor, tears streaming down their cheeks as they begin chanting....

"Dopey shagged a penguin! Dopey shagged a penguin!"
