    Pretty sick, any of you guys like to torture small animals?

    1. Interesting use of the adverb “yea”, though we’ll let that one go for now.

    2. A group of penguins may be referred to as a colony, parcel, rookery or town, but not a bunch, unless of course you’ve come by just after they’ve wandered into a mine field and all you have left is a pile of penguin remains which may perhaps be properly labeled a bunch. Come back in a couple of minutes when the carcasses stop bouncing.

    3. How do you know these penguins have never bothered anyone? And are you claiming that if they had bothered someone that blowing them up would be alright?

    4. How do you know the land mines are sexually active? Or do you toss in expletives because nothing indicates a sense of seriousness more than a casual f-bomb — especially one that is capitalized!

    5. Speaking only for myself, I do not like to torture animals. I limit myself to rhetorically torturing pompous, self-righteous twits.

    6. But perhaps I’ve read it wrong. Maybe you are using “sick” in the vernacular to mean really unbelieveably good and you are soliciting felonious behavior. Now that would be sick.

  41. Reuters apologizes for the photoshopping of the photograph. The Americans are not identifying the minefields they are erecting in Iraq with English only signs. The error was caused when dust was removed from the original photograph.

  42. So the republithugs has this mind control program they are implanting in the penguins heads, see. And they tested out the mind control by making the penguins walk through a minefield. Now they are using the scanners at Walmart to implant the same mind control program in Americans. That is why so many people who shop at Walmart vote republican, even though it is against their class interests. I’ve shown you the exit polls and the photograph, why can’t you just accept the truth?

    3) The ironic thing about this, Greenpeace had set up the minefield to keep out BushMcHaliburton from exploiting the oil field under the Penguin’s natural nesting ground. Little did Greenpeace know that the penguins would change their path to the sea.

    4) The latest UN report regarding mines. Who knew that their was a Penguinistan that had been littered with mines too?
