Linda..tsk, tsk, tsk.You shocking home wrecker, you!

Scandal abounds at the San Francisco zoo when recently widowed, Linda, a Magellanic penguin, decided she did not like the single life. And who did lonely, lovelorn Linda turn to but Harry, supposedly a gay penguin who had been sharing a nest with also male Pepper for the last six years. Pepper was initially so despondent and angry at Harry's betrayal, he had to be removed from the enclosure. Maybe he successfully completed anger management 101 because he has now been let back into the same pen as Harry and Linda. I think Harry and Linda need to watch their backs. You never know when the lovesick Pepper will fly off the handle and try to get his man back.

And yet, sadly enough, there are no reality shows with penguin households. I'm telling you, TV is missing a golden opportunity here. With this type of shocking love triangle goings-on, such a show would be a big hit!

Okay, I am taking my tongue out of my cheek now. Just thought y'all might get a chuckle over this news "item."

You tube pulled the video. Sorry!


  1. A penguin soap opera would be better than more than half the stuff on tv these days. :)

  8. I never knew that penguins were so... human! Love triangles, jealousy, cheating and scandal. What a life! I saw a story about this on TV too. I wonder if they know everybody else knows their business. Penguin paparazzi! Great story!
