In a story sure to warm Black Hawk's heart (inside joke, sorry) a group of around 100 penguins who have been living it up in Rio de Janeiro are being deported back to Antarctica by the Brazilian military. The high living flightless waterfowl have been lounging about Ipanema bothering the Brazilian bikini babes after having caught a ride on ice flows.
Penguins arrive from the Antarctic Circle on ice floes that melt in the vicinity of Brazil's shore and the birds wash up on Rio beaches every winter. Typically many of the birds are sent to local zoos.
A plane carrying equipment for an Antarctic naval base will take the penguins to Brazil's southernmost region next month, an air force spokesman said on Monday. They will continue their journey on a naval ship, which will release them into the ocean in their Antarctic habitat.
We're supposed to believe this is all accidental, but we here at Blue Crab Boulevard know the truth about the animal uprising. Sunbathing penguins are the proverbial tip of the iceberg. Wait until the walruses start asking the Brazilian beauties for a date!
