Suicidal Penguins

In the News: This category features news-related prompts.
March of the Suicidal Penguins
Recently, penguins won the epic battle against chickens in a landslide. What could possibly prompt a headline such as this?

Source: AOL News. It's actually a very interesting story if you have a minute to read.

We Have A Winner!!! 03/01/10
I think the penguins found out about the theories that some scientist and others have about global warming, ice caps melting, and all that other stuff that would ruin their lives, so instead of waiting for their impending deaths, their committing suicide.
Winner: Silver Star (@silvrstar)
Reason: Sometimes, if I listen to too many health "news" reports, I find myself feeling almost as disillusioned. Poor penguins, I feel their pain.

"March of the Suicical Penguins" is the big production number from Disney's latest: a cartoon remake of the classic story, "Nanook of the North, Visiting the Arctic on Pennies a Day!"

There are two aspects.
1) They won the race across the road.
2) They actually had reason for crossing.

Cheers!

Uhhh -
Three aspects.

3) They did it in heavy traffic. Not all made it.

RIP, penguins.

This global warming just sucks!
Can a penguin sweat?
Oh yeah, you bet!
You'd be hot too, if you wore a tux!
