Did you ever wonder why there are no dead penguins   on the ice in Antarctica ?   Where do they go? 

  Wonder no more ! ! !  
It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic   bird which lives an extremely ordered  and complex life.  The penguin is very committed   to its family and will mate for life, as well as maintain a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life. 


If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of  the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into, and buried.
The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

“Freeze a jolly good  fellow.”
“Freeze a jolly good fellow.”

You really   didn’t believe that I know anything  about penguins, did you?

It’s so easy to fool OLD people.  
I am sorry, an urge came over me that made me do it!!!                                                                                                                                            

Oh quit whining, I fell for it, too.
