WTF am I doing?

life…it’s complicated and random. very random.

Gay penguins want to be parents too…


When I first came across this story I thought it was a joke, but it’s for real…lol.
According to the UK’s Telegraph, a couple of gay penguins are attempting to become fathers by stealing eggs from straight penguin couples. The boys started putting stones at the feet of the parent penguins to conceal that they were waddling off with their eggs. But their theft was noticed by other penguins at the zoo and the gay couple has now been ostracised so keepers have segregated the three year old male penguins from the rest in attempt to avoid any disruptions during hatching season.

You maybe laughing your ass off right about now…as are the people I just told but apparently gay penguins is not uncommon in the animal community. I can’t stop laughing at the image of boys waddling off with the eggs and the parents waddling after them when they realized what had happened…lol!!!!!

**In 2002, a couple of gay penguins were “outed” after eight years when keepers finally noticed they were both males at a NY zoo….my question is what took them EIGHT years to notice?!? I mean after the third or four year weren’t they concerned by the lack of babies?! Whatev.

**A German zoo unsuccessfully tried to mate some gay male penguins by flying in some Swedish female birds…but those males were for real gay and were not turned on in the slightest.
