Sir, it's not an offence to let your cat eat your bacon. Okay? And we don't arrest cats, I'm very sorry.

OK, I think I'm thinking of the Royal penguin. Except this concerns me:

There is some controversy over whether Royal penguins are a sub-species of Macaroni penguins. Individuals of the two groups have been known to interbreed, though this is a relatively rare occurrence. Indeed, other penguins have been known to form mixed-species pairs in the wild.

HA! My new school email account blocks everything as spam but doesn't tell me that it has. It bounces it to the sender without ever notifying me that someone attempted to mail me.

Sometimes, I think my school is all fucked up.

If you could be any species of penguin, which would you be?

Fairy penguin? That's a kind right?

Otherwise...Opus.

MACARONI PENGUIN. That's my favorite just based on the pasta reference.

I think rockhoppers are the ones with the feathers sticking out of their heads.

Or that.

As their name suggests, they spend their time hopping over rocks, and the explorers who discovered them were amused to see the penguins jumping all over the place.

OK.

The feeling you get when your brain finally lets your heart get in its pants.

Galapagos penguin, definitely, or one of the Australian ones, since they live where it is not cold.

You should know I'm a big deal in the Resistance.

We had lots of fun with our spam filters here at the theatre when the movie XXX was in release. We had to refer to it as Triple Ecks.

Hey, do any of you want to be an emergency contact for me? I need more than my mother and sister.

The Macaroni Penguin (Eudyptes chrysolophus) is a species of penguin closely related to the Royal Penguin

It is a black and white penguin with yellow and black plumes on the top of its head. It generally lays two eggs, eating the first.

The freaks.

There are penguins in New Zealand too. Two species even.

Still not a penguin fan.
