  14. I know what to do if the emperor has no clothes, but this is ‘above my pay grade’.

    This is what happens when you rigorously enforce the ‘don’t ask – don’t tell’ policy, drill sergeants of other species.

    You eyeballin’ me boy?

    I know the idea of having a penguin as being the colonel-in-chief of the King’s guards seems ridiculous. But compare the Kings guards track record to the secret service and you have to wonder if they aren’t on to something.

    Do you see how sloppy that line is? It’s not that I am prejudiced against penguins. Some of my best friends are penguins. But he is just not up to the job.

    Penguin: Clean that bird poop off your show soldier.
    Soldier: What bird poop?
    Penguin: Give me a minute. I had a bread and cheese fondue last night.

    Suspicions were raised about the new Colonel-in-chief when it was discovered he had a distinct Scottish accent.

  17. markm says:

    Penguin: “..aaats right BITCHES….full Bird Colonel”

  18. John425 says:

    Penguin: “That cwazy wabbit is in here somepwace!”

    Penguin: “…and you’ll stand here until someone returns the fish oil!”

    Penguin: “What we’ve got here is a failure to communicate. Some men you just can’t reach.”

    Penguin: “Alright! Who said nuns look just like penguins?”

  19. John425 says:

    “I was born an Emperor Penguin! Napoleon was a wannabe and a late starter!”

    . . . and when Pvt. Pengy was selected to catch the bayoneted rifle from Cpl. Stevens, well, that’s when the boys knew it was “grillin’ night.”


    OK, 50 points: What movie was that from?

    Mel Brooks’ History of the World Part I. (“He’s up! . . . And gone!”)

  24. Gollum says:

    Sheesh! He takes this “Emperor” Penguin thing a bit too seriously, don’t you think?

  26. Gollum says:

    “That’s right soldier, NEVER leave your wingman. I happen to take that very seriously.”

  27. William d'Inger says:

    Mabel’s right. All humans DO look alike.

  28. William d'Inger says:

    Laugh now, but when the ice melts and the oceans rise, you’ll wish you had paid attention to what I’m telling ya.

  29. William d'Inger says:

    Penguin thought bubble: “It has to be Intelligent Design. There’s no way evolution could have made that many mistakes.”

  30. William d'Inger says:

    Penguin to soldier: “If this were California, I’d marry you.”

  31. William d'Inger says:

    Penguin thought bubble: “I bet they taste like chicken.”

  32. Russ says:

    I bet they never make a documentary called “The ‘Position of Attention’ of the Penguins.”

  33. Chest up. Gut in. Head Straight. (I’ve always wanted to do this.)

  34. Bithead says:

    * Just think of it as a leather bird.

    Grounded from flight status by evolution, penguins still make excellent infantry officers.

  41. William d'Inger says:

    Penguin: “Oh yeah, wise guy, well your pecker can’t catch fish.”

  42. steve says:

    “Kippers. Have you seen my kippers?”

  43. markm says:

    Penguin: “NOPE, not Biden, just read it on OTB”

  44. markm says:

    Penguin: “WTF?!?!?…did you just call me Pingu??…NOOOOOK NOOK!”

  45. markm says:

    Soldiers: “Colonel Olav, me and the mates was wundrin..which came first, the penguin or the egg?”

    Colonel Olav: “’re looking at it from a theological perspective or a…uhhh…uhhh…scientific perspective, answering that question with…uhh…specificity ….is..uhh…above my pay grade”

  46. William d'Inger says:

    Penguin thought bubble: “That must be their winter plumage.”
