  1. FreakyBoy says:

    “Launch of the Penguins”

  2. Ingress says:

    “Mates, it is a gosh darned shame that the only safe place for us is an unsafe place for them.”

  3. Gaijin Biker says:

    The first day of shooting on Jerry Bruckheimer and Michael Bay’s March of the Penguins II

  4. The chain reaction was reminiscent of the ‘room full of mousetraps’ scene from Mousehunt

  5. FreakyBoy says:

    “Guys, guys, I know it sounds impossible, but I swear this is the last place I saw Elmo before he was able to fly.”

  6. Mythilt says:

    “Shouldn’t that sign be infront the dog pound?”
    “Nah, those are just messy, these also smell of herring.”

  7. Mythilt says:

    Birds of a feather should fl***BOOOM***

  8. Anderson says:

    The new wonder-mines did indeed turn their victims into penguins, but deployment against al-Qaeda ran up against an insoluble problem: how the $%@# will we know which penguin is Osama? They all look the same.

  9. David Harris says:

    I thought mine-clearing was usually done by SEALS.

  10. Ray says:

    “The US military announces it’s deployment of newly developed Biomines in environmentally sensitive areas.”

  11. The Man says:

    The UNs new way of disposing of mines really irked PETA.

  12. The Man says:

    Penguins seen flying was all the proof Al Gore needed to insist Global Warming was upon us.

  13. McCain says:

    Republican penguins don’t cut and run.

  14. Mythilt says:

    The only thing protecting us from a massed penguin attack across the DMZ is our use of mines.

  15. Mark says:

    I knew we should have made a left turn at Albuquerque…

  16. FormerHostage says:

    The sign has a typo. It should say “MIMES”

  17. McGehee says:

    Iraq’s insurgents couldn’t figure out why their new IEDs weren’t fooling anyone.

  18. Wayne says:

    The symbolic representation of Democrats taking control of Congress.

  19. Linux users arrived in droves for the first Microsoft-sponsored open source conference.

  20. Death March of the Penguins

  21. John Lee Hooker said it best.

  22. What’s black and white and (soon to be) red all over?

  23. anjin-san says:

    Yea, a bunch of penguins that never bothered anyone getting blown up by a F——g land mine, now that’s a source of humor…

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

  24. Famous last words (Antarctic edition): “Flightless, my ass. Hold my sardine and watch this.”

  25. Watch Pingu become Pin-goo.

  26. “Help us Mr. Whoopee!”

  27. Anjin-san, that’s the funniest comment here, even though I don’t think you meant it to be. Who said the age of irony is over?


    “Hello! Well, it’s just after eight o’clock, and time for the penguin on top of your tundra to explode.”

  29. “Ok, ok, we’re almost there. Now, everyone open your eyes.”

  30. Yea, a bunch of penguins that never bothered anyone getting blown up by a F——g land mine, now that’s a source of humor…

    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.

  31. Oliver Stone’s remake of the ‘March of the Penguins’ would likely satisfy conspiracy buffs, but would not be well received by those who liked the original ‘March of the Penguins’.

  32. I believe I can fly…if I just weighed enough to set the damn mine off at least.

  33. Proof of global warming is seen by these sweaty penguins standing in the Libyan desert once fought over by Montgomery and Rommel.

  34. The advantage is these mind clearers will work for herring.

  35. First, we need to teach the penguins to read.

  36. It’ll be a great nesting beach you said. The prices are the lowest of any beach on the island you said. But it turns out that its over crowded because everyone had the same idea. By the way, is that thunder I keep hearing?

  37. 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.

  38. 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?

  39. Don’t poop on the things that go pop.

  40. anjin-san says:


    you torture yourself? Yea, guess you do….

  41. Well, I do attempt to use appropriate punctuation and grammar, if that’s what you mean.

  42. Scott_T says:

    1) Don’t let Happy Feet in here!

    2) Man those Argentinians really don’t want anyone trespassing on their land huh?

    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?

  43. Rodney Dill says:

    Yetigames’ “Escape From The Yeti” was shaping up to be the best game in the series yet.

  44. 1) All heads turned as one poor little penguin heard the *click* they had all been worrying about.


  45. I don’t care if the salesperson was a duck, I think we still need AFLAC.

  46. McCain says:

    Hey charles austin and yetanother john,
    you wordy guys need to save some of your adolescent excitement for the caption contest. there is only so much you can say about a field of freaking penguins.

  47. Rodney Dill says:

    Your contest is a bust McCain.

  48. DaveD says:

    The FDA approved penguins as a viable animal research model for human shields.

  49. Mythilt says:

    All your penguins are belong to us!!!!!
    Someone set us up the bomb!!!!

  50. Roger says:

    Where’s PETA when you need them?

  51. Hermoine says:

    “Tucker, come out of there. You did it wrong. You should have started on Dancing While Seated then moved up to Dancing With Penguins. Ending with an eye-catching, fantastical win on Dancing With The Stars.”

  52. Alan Kellogg says:

    Don’t worry, they just ran out of leopard seal signs.

  53. Mr. Right says:

    Batman and Robin found themselves with no clear approach to the villain’s lair due to the nefarious laborings of the Oswald Cobblepot’s feathered henchmen.

  54. Timmer says:

    Having collectively run into the “Rosie O’Donnel is Naked Celebrity Porn Blog” they saw no other way to get the images out of their heads…the horror, the horror.

  55. Stage Call For Katie Couric WannaBes

  56. CIA Operatives Fear That Their Cover Might Be Blown.

  57. Flock Out Of Luck.

  58. Ray says:

    Yea, a bunch of penguins that never bothered anyone getting blown up by a F——g land mine, now that’s a source of humor…

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

    I don’t see any explosions or dead penguins, do you? So, just how many penguins were blown up? My guess would be none.

    Having said that: “Things that make you go BOOM”

  59. Cowboy Blob says:

    This’ll keep those *&%^*(& naturalists from molesting us!

  60. Rachel Edith says:

    Times Change : March of The Penguins 2006

  61. Elmo says:

    Ron Popeil’s new Pocket Lib Head’Sploder, show to any Libwuhl and watch their head explode. Not available in N.Y., S.F., or L.A.. For entertainment purposes only. Not to be confused with Pocket Talking Pope Doll [watch Muslim heads explode (available separately)].

  62. Two words: Penguin smoothie.

  63. Adjustah says:

    Dear Lord, bless Mommy, and Daddy and please don’t let Tim Burton make another Batman movie…

  64. How to make penguins fly.


    Flightless schmightless.

  65. Peggy Catron says:

    Ok, guys. . . let’s all jump up and down and maybe the dancer mimes will come out and start the show!
