Who Named These Poor Creatures?
Apparently there is a penguin that lives off the coast of Africa called the Jackass penguin. Poor things. What a horrible moniker to be saddled with. Did they earn their name because they are always doing stupid things like stapling their private parts to their legs? Are they dumb creatures? Do they lack commonsense? Are they rude to others or inconsiderate? Nope. None of the above. Apparently they were labeled Jackass Penguins because their call sounds like that of a donkey. Poor things. Do they really deserve such a unflattering name when they are so cute? Isn’t it bad enough that they are severely endangered? Wouldn’t donkey penguins have been a nicer name? Who ever it was that stuck this unfortunate nickname on these adorable, endangered creatures should be ashamed of themselves, and get down on their knees and apologize to the birds that they wronged so horribly.
Who Are You Calling a Jackass? We are African Penguins Thank You.
Thank You for Your Consideration,
