Wishful thinking, bucko!
I know it's pretty trite to complain about the weather, but geez. I forget how awful the end of winter is every year.
Life as a penguin, while cordial and good mannered, would be the absolute pits. Huddling in a barren wasteland, not really my idea of a good time. And don't even get me started on leopard seals. Not only do they eat hapless penguins, but did you know they are also MAN-KILLERS??
"Leopard seal feeding behavior is most easily seen when preying on penguins. The captured bird is thrashed about on the water until its skin peels away. The remaining carcass is then eaten."
How absolutely horrific. PETA lied to me.
