For All you Penguin Heads...

http://www.cnn.com/2006/WORLD/americ...eut/index.html



RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil (Reuters) -- Brazil's air force and navy will transport more than 100 penguins to Antarctica next month after the flightless birds were stranded on Rio de Janeiro beaches.

Penguins arrive from the Antarctic Circle on ice floes that melt in the vicinity of Brazil's shore and the birds wash up on Rio beaches every winter. Typically many of the birds are sent to local zoos.

A plane carrying equipment for an Antarctic naval base will take the penguins to Brazil's southernmost region next month, an air force spokesman said on Monday. They will continue their journey on a naval ship, which will release them into the ocean in their Antarctic habitat.

Can't they just make a penguin cannon and shoot 'em back?

- rats! i thought this post was about Linux™!

- and the article doesn't even address or answer the single, most important question about penguins:

"Do they taste like chicken or beef?"

I read this thread just to check and see if I am a penguin head or not.
