“Our wings serve as flippers that carry us across the ocean; not in the sky!

Why, us penguins have so much fun time in the water, we don't even want to fly!”

– Jasmine Martin


There's a Polar Bear

In our Frigidaire--

He likes it 'cause it's cold in there.

With his seat in the meat

And his face in the fish

And his big hairy paws
