There's just nothing funnier. Something about a penguin falling flat on his face, especially the babies, just cracks me up. There are many things that penguins do well, but running and stepping off of things higher than a couple inches aren't among them. Magellanics just followed each other right off a cliff – okay, it was just a foot, but it was really funny. It seems penguins don't know how short their legs are, so they look and reach, and it's just too far and POOF … on their face. And then there's the gentoo chase. Chicks want to be fed, and the adult takes off running. Sometimes somebody else's chick joins in on the off chance that the adult will accidentally share some juicy regurgitant. All it takes is for one guy to trip and POOF … dominoes! Just the funniest thing there is …
