Epic Battle

Now What?: Write what comes next.
This Saturday, there will be an epic battle between penguins and chickens.
Which group will claim victory and why?

We Have A Winner!!! 02/17/10
The penguins won, of course, because everyone know that knows that no amount of BBQ sauce can mask the fact that penguin tastes like charbroiled ass. The chickens, however, were quite lovely with a little K.C. Masterpiece or a touch of honey mustard dipping sauce and were quickly devoured by their black and whited foes.
Winner: Rabbit (@redheaddancing)
Reason: The clear winners of this post are the penguins. Not a single vote for chickens? But Rabbit wins because his post made me hungry. So many great responses to this one though - I really enjoyed reading them!

Let's look at the facts:
Most varieties of penguins pick just one mate for life
vs
Most male chickens will go through the hens nests and destroy all male eggs (yes they know the difference)

Penguins huddle up together when cold, rotating so that the same penguins are not on the outside facing the elements all winter long

Chickens don't huddle up very well, they can't seem to agree on who gets the outside and who gets the inside and while they do prefer to be in "groups" they prefer their own space while within these "groups"

Penguins are fairly selfless. The male penguin will keep the egg safe and warm until the female comes back with food for the newly hatched baby. They work together to bring just one life per pair into this world.

Hens sit on the eggs and keep them warm but if a rooster is around the only thing hatching is more female chickens

IF chickens survived in this epic battle it would be purely out of our desire to continue to eat them. We as humans have so many resources to keep eggs and chicken products out there and readily available for consumption later.

Penguins win it in my book because of their fierce loyalty and determination to survive even the harshest of winters.

I may be a bit prejudice, but my money's on the penguins. According to my head trauma, high on morphine self, we're all evolving into penguins. Aside from my delusional self, it's tougher to survive the cold than the heat, so you know penguins have to be tougher creatures. Penguins have wings that they actually use, chickens don't use theirs. Penguins swim, chickens don't. Going back to my original statement, humans eat chickens, I've never heard of anyone eating penguins, so penguins would kill chickens, then eat them. There's also the saying "Taste like chicken," nobody says "Taste like penguin."

As if there's any question! Penguins can swim. The penguin will proceed to hide in the water and when the chicken approaches (all loud like because who ever knew a quiet chicken?), he will jump out of the water and chew the chicken's jugular into oblivion. The end folks. That's all she wrote!

The feathers, they flew; what a terrible mess!
(But rather amusing, I have to confess.)
Who won the fight?
Clear as black and white--
Penguins prevail. They dress for success!

Penguins will win. They always do. Look at a penguin. Look at a chicken. Which one would you put on the best dressed list? Penguins win.
