The Penguin Masters Speak

Bugg's Take

My first post of 2006.

It's late.

Already the 13th. It's a Friday. *gasp*

What happened to the first 12 days of the new year?

It's absolutely flown by. Busy with training and getting settled into the Betelbox.

As most of you would have heard, amongst other things that have happened to me include spending 9 hours on foot, walking from Chinatown to Little India. 8 hours in Johor Bahru (Larkin Bus Port and Senai Airport). And a couple of days ago, I was a bit player (read: prop) in the China version of The Amazing Race.

But I digress.

The first Basement post of 2006 will be dedicated to…. yup, you guessed it… the question of 2005.

"How in the heck do penguins get up after falling over???"

Ben was so kind to email this question to penguin gurus Pete & Barbara.

And here is their answer:

Hi Benjamin

Thanks for the email and question.

Penguins use their flippers (wings) and beaks to help themselves get up – they have no difficulty at all in doing so.

Best wishes

Peter and Barbara

OK, so I promise to let this matter rest in peace from now on. Thanks Ben for helping me dig this answer up.

Just had to get that off my chest.

Here's to a wonderful 2006.
