    Maybe there is some truth to the Argies claims to Antartica as only Argie penguins would behave like this.British penguins would be more demure and discreet.(Only kidding !)

    Hmm, depraved sexual behaviour. If that doesn't increase tourism, nothing will!

    Roll up, roll up! See the perverted nemesis of Batman having it away with the dead! LOL

    I'll never be able to pppp-ick up a penguin again! At least not without sniggering! :0)

    Necrophilia ! I think not!
    Just a concerned penguin trying to warm up a friend in this God-forsaken and chilly land.
    “sexual coercion, sexual and physical abuse of chicks, non-procreative sex, and homosexual behaviour ....... fascinating.”
    Sounds to me like the expedition stopped off somewhere in South America ... only joking.

    There is no malvinista antagonising you here, but you have all gone off on an Argie-bashing trip.
    PGH is right on this.

    Ah, I don't think these guys are really Argie-bashing - couple of them even said they were kidding and joking. Ain't that so?

    Now take your mind off Dr Levick's promiscuous penguins and look at the nice, sunny day in Stanley and Fitzroy thanks to some webcams - and not a penguin in sight:

    Which part of my post is Argie bashing? The only person I mention is Batman!

    I have no problems with Argentina or Argentinians, only their stance regarding the Falklands.

    My S.A. surmisings (in jest), referred to Salvador - which is where I have lived, in Bahia, Brasil.
    They are well known and are as old as Darwin's diaries, recording general wildlife (including human) activities along the S.A. coast during the second voyage of the Beagle.

    At least, an honest one!

    No offense taken. Still, think about it... there's too much hate around. The philosophy “Hate the sin, not the sinner” is bulls**t, in my opinion. Don't hate, period.
