I NEVER KNEW THIS..... Why you never see a dead Penguin

Begin forwarded message:

I never knew this.


Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins

On the ice in  Antarctica ?  - Where do they go ? 
Wonder no more ! ! !

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic

bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

 The penguin is very committed to its family. It mates

for life, and maintains a form of compassionate contact with its

offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other

members of the family and social circle have been

known to dig holes in  the ice, using their vestigial

wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for

the dead bird to be rolled into and buried.

The male penguins then gather in a circle

around the fresh grave and sing:

                         "Freeze a jolly good fellow"
                         "Freeze a jolly good fellow."

                         "Then they kick him in the ice hole." 

You really didn't believe that I know anything about penguins, did you?
