British Penguin Abuse Must Stop!
Thanks to Dave Holle

A Mexican newspaper reports that bored Royal Air Force pilots
stationed on the Falkland Islands have devised what they consider a
marvelous new game.
Noting that the local penguins are fascinated by airplanes, the
pilots search out a beach where the birds are gathered and fly slowly
along it at the water's edge. Perhaps ten thousand penguins turn
their heads in unison watching the planes go by, and when the pilots
turn around and fly back, the birds turn their heads in the opposite
direction, like spectators at a slow-motion tennis match.
Then, the paper reports, "The pilots fly out to sea and directly
to the penguin colony and overfly it. Heads go up, up, up, and ten
thousand penguins fall over gently onto their backs.
