Blogger Tirade Insults Penguins

The blog Snarkling Clean may have to clean up their act, after one of the bloggers referred to the crested penguins portrayed in the movie “Happy Feet” as “spastic” and “straw-haired.” The chairman of the National Association for the Promotion of Penguins, or NAPP, has called the remarks “degrading, derogatory, and inflammatory. We have enough to deal with making people understand that we don’t live at the North Pole and have nothing to do with polar bears. We shouldn’t have to deal with species-ist comments from a somewhat regionally known blogger.” The blogger, Robyn, had no immediate comment, but was heard to mutter, “So? They look like that.”

Al Sharpton just contacted me regarding your comments. Please, for the love of Pete, refrain from making any more specie-ist comments. We are in enough trouble already.

I'd just like to take a moment here and point out that the species in question is not even a real penguin. It's a computer generated, fluffed up RIP OFF of the real thing.

Tell NAPP to stick their South Pole where the sun doesn't shine. (Oh, that's right, there IS NO SUN down there...)
