The Lincoln Park Zoo in Chicago just welcomed a new member to its family, a fuzzy little penguin chick whose sex has still not been determined. Look at its wise little gaze! It's a bit on the philosophical side, no? I shall call him or her Socrates.
Poor Pierre! At 25, this adorable African penguin was losing his feathers. This created a host of problems for the little guy: problems swimming, feeling chills, and getting picked on by the other penguins. But thanks to his handler Pam Schaller at the California Academy of Sciences, he got his mojo back. How? She had some local surfers design Pierre his own wetsuit! Not only did it keep him warm, but his feathers grew back and his alpha status returned, too. He's currently seeing a penguin half his age. (This sounds suspiciously like a "Hair Club For Men" commercial.) PetSugar tells me it's World Penguin Day! Yay!
The March of the Penguins had way too many birds in it. How 'bout we replace a few (or all) of the birds with waddling human extras? For sex appeal, natch.
Over the years, Alfred David's interest in penguins has turned into an obsession. He's not just into them, he now actually thinks he is a penguin. He even has the suit and waddle to prove it! Alfred claims to have a wife, but she doesn't make an appearance in this video. Understandably.
Not new to the sunglasses scene, Penguin shades have lived under the radar but thanks to fans like Amy Winehouse and Brit bad girl Peaches Geldof, I suspect a boom is near. These vintage-inspired frames are fun and fabulous - and affordable to boot.
These oversized lovelies are currently on sale for $113, from $150. Be sure to check out their other styles ranging from bold Dirk Diggler-esque shapes for the boys and sexy-in-my-Cabrio rims for the girls.
Last week, we watched Gollum and Smeagol, of Lord Of The Rings, get slugged with the Barry White bat. This week, the Ice Age penguins get hit with the thugly stick- but it's all good, cuz they know how to "walk it out."
The stars were out in full force at last night's An Original Penguin Party, and after seeing Paris Hilton and Stacy Keibler try on this adorable coat, I thought I'd see what the brand was all about, since I've never actually bought a piece of Penguin clothing. But I was delighted to discover that the retro brand's Fall and Winter 2006 lines are at once classic and trendy with playful cuts and colors. Here's a look at some of my favorite Penguin picks.
