The Antarctica Files: Penguin Sex.

Yes, you read that right.

Penguin sex.

You know youve always wondered.

Now you can see it for yourself.


Yes, for the rest of the trip, we made ‘penguin sex’ jokes at any/all given opportunities. This often involved flapping our arms for a visual demonstration. The ‘penguin punch’.

I didnt notice it at the time, but I did after my bud uploaded this to YouTube: Please note that while several of the penguins in the vicinity just sat on their eggs, minding their own business– there is a creeper penguin, like, right there, just staring… staring at the other two penguins having penguin sex… breathing…

I laughed really hard at that.

But then I realized that we were even creepier creepers, recording and watching two members of a different species having sex.

BUT ITS FOR SCIENCE!

    All that and a reiki massage afterwards?

    I think you may have gotten it wrong: Creepy Penguin isn’t being creepy. He’s stoned out of his little gourd. He’s like Brad Pitt’s cameo in True Romance: too strung out on whatever penguins like to really notice.

    “Dude. Wow, man, you’re having sex right in front of me. That’s cool. Just…wow, man. Hey, you two wanna smoke a bowl? I got extra.”

    I believe this validates Rule 34, but the only joke it brings to my mind is the one about leprechaun nuns.

    They were in such a hurry they forgot to take off their tuxedos first! Heartwarming, more or less…

    Awr, that’s kinda sweet.

    Here’s a video I found recently of a happy little penguin dancin’ to his own thang, don’t care what anyone say.

    So not something I ever really needed to see. Yet at the same time, so not something that I could pass up the opportunity to see.

    I think it is official that penguins cannot manage to do anything without being adorable.

    It’s gone. You might try to delete the sound (probably something Sony is greedy about) and upload it again.

    A few more possible alternative explanations for Creepy the Penguin!

    1. He’s very deeply depressed and unable to muster the energy to look away from this charming scene. (Courtesy of my mate, who doth tend to look always upon the bright side!)

    2. Creepy is the bride’s father / groom’s mother / overprotective relation of one or the other, and is keeping a close eye on the dastardly seducer of their loved one.

    3. The happy couple is in sex therapy, and Creepy is their erotic exploration counselor.

    There are penguins near where I live in New Zealand, a few minutes drive away.

    Now I know why people go to the Antarctica to see penguins.

    Penguins there live exposed on the open.

    Penguins in New Zealand have burrows.

    Just saying.

    Erm, I’m saying the penguins are a few minutes drive from where I am, not that New Zealand is a few minutes drive from where you are. Right?

    Watch this while listening to “Poker Face”.

    Repeat.

    Repeat.

    Repeat.

    ..I thought it was kind of sweet too (wasn’t at all disturbing as I thought it might be). very vaguely reminds me of the Ig Nobel award to researchers who documented fellatio in bats

    We are recording people having sex, why not recording and watching penguins? :)

    At least we have a private place. Have a compliment for them when they can do it in public.
