Or so the Monty Python troupe helpfully reminded us back in the 70s… But in a sense these penguins did come from next door to us, relatively speaking. They happen to reside in SeaWorld, Orlando, not too far up the road. MaryLu has always loved these formally-dressed feathered friends, and this is her favorite exhibit at SeaWorld.  But mind you, dress warmly if you wish to pay them a visit.  It’s cold in there!

“It is now six o’clock, which means it is time for the penguin on top of your television set to explode…. (How did ‘e know that was going to ‘appen?”)
