Still, though, you do have to wonder where they get them from, don’t you?
Perhaps it is just me, then.
Although, when that knock comes on your door in the early hours of the morning, don’t say you weren’t warned.
First they came for the fish… and all that.
You may think those penguins look cute in the nature programmes on TV and at the zoo, but their day is drawing ever closer.
That is why there are so many of them in those formerly-secret Antarctic bases of theirs.
One day you’ll go to the zoo, and all the zebras, lions, antelopes and everything in the children’s petting enclosure will be gone. There will be penguins everywhere: ranks upon ranks of them, just standing… watching your every move.
Then, another day, you will go to the supermarket biscuit aisle, wanting some kind of ordinary digestive, or Rich Tea, and there will be nothing but Penguin biscuits as far as the eye can see.
Not only that, all the meat, pizzas, frozen vegetables and the essential ready meals that keep this great nation alive and malfunctioning will be gone. All replaced by fish, with only the occasional kipper or fish finger to break the monotony.
There will be gangs of penguins on every High Street hanging out, waiting for the fish and chip shops to open. There will be penguins everywhere and it will all be too, too late….
So don’t ever say you weren’t warned.
