ROFL!!! If only it were true!!!!!!!!!!
Hi yu John.. since posting that clip Ive learned that the BBC have produced a number of April Fool's Videos like this one.. there was a really funny one on Macaroni being harvested from their tree orchards.. I may post it at a later stage. If you dind notice.. there is a link on the making of the penguin clip within my comment above.. very very clever... Nice to see you here too. . Have a great weekend!
ROFL!!! Macaroni from trees??!! I am looking forward to seeing that one!!!
Now how did I know I would find John on a penguins blog lolol. Had I not known this was a joke...... I woulda had my jaw hanging on the desk lololol. Like..is this a new kind of penguins?!?!? Brilliantly shot.... SOOO much work put into this April's fools joke.Cant wait for the macaroni one!
Well, it took forever, but that was a hoot. It is almost anti-climatic when it finally loads and it is so quick to play! LOL! But that was cool.
shhhh .. Mimi, but dont tell anyone... I actually for a couple of seconds into this clip was fasinated cause I didnt know it was a hoax... they were showing it on the television LOL .. so, yeah, my jaw was dropped.
Godess.. (as opposed to 'One" ..yeah I read yr comment on David's blog)... Im so pleased you actually got to view this. Its SO amazingly life like isnt it.. just goes to show how clever technology and the people who know how to use it, can be. Oh yes.. the comment I was refering to (about replying a month early .. was on yr notes section regarding your 50th Birthday.. (( I got the month all confused lol))
This could be an appropriate time to mention this little memory of mine. When I was 19yrs (ish) the seaside town that I now reside in (but didnt back then, I lived 30 minutes further inland), had a small oil slick which affected the local Fairy Penguin Colony. My group of friends who lived in the coastal community, and myself, helped with the cleaning of these cute tiny creatures. They were really adorable. First we had to smother the whole body of the penguin in Margarine. which was quite time consuming and then we placed the bird in warm, detergent water and washed all the oil and Margarine off. Ill never foreget how they would place their heads agains my chest, beak pointed up ward and croon, whilst outstretching their little wings further and further so that you could scratch away under their wings and their chest... After all traces of oil and Margarine had been washed away, the penguin had to be rinsed, rubbed dry and then fed. I recall by the third day I was standing on a chair .. as they would peck at our ankles letting us know they were ready for MORE fish lol.. they are just the cutest little things. Its a gorgeous memory for Glenn and I
How sad about the oil slick... humans are such idiots. Didn't know they were so easy to tame... always figured them to be apprehensive of humans. Amazing experience for sure.
ARG! lol, I didn't want this "one" thing to be such a big deal, so feel free to call me Jenny if it bothers you guys! I'm just so not used to anyone calling me "one", and it feels weird. It is like when someone calls you "kid"; it is weird, you know? LOL. But yes, this was a cool vid, and I LOVE penguins, well, all animals really, but I have this trip for Emperor Penguins. I loved the personal story you told, what an incredible experience...words fail...you must have just loved that. We are sooo irresponsible with this planet...good to know someone is helping! (big hug to your heart) XZX
