Posted:My mum told me this story, and it put me on the floor laughing... so I thought I'd share.

A couple of weeks ago, my aunty, my cousin, my cousin's best friend and her younger brother (age 7- has downs syndrome) all went for a day trip to Lightwater Valley (or could've been flamingo land). For people not familiar with this, it's a fun park that has a zoo section.

It got to mid afternoon, and they they decided to all go on one of the rides. But the boy didn't want to go on with them. He's very good at staying where he's told to, so they said to him "ok, there's no queue so we're not going to be very long. Stay here, don't move, and we'll be back shortly."
So they left him sat on a wall with his backpack on, beside the ride.

They got off the ride, and sure enough he was still where they had left him... except he was soaking wet, head to foot.
They asked him "what happened? who did this to you?"
All he could do was reply over and over again "I want to go home. I want to go home now"

So they all left the park, got to the car, threw his backpack in the back, and went back to my aunty's house.
They walked into the living room, and he sat down on the floor, unzipped his backpack... and pulled out a baby penguin!!!!! eek

Whilst they were on the ride, he'd snuck off, somehow managed to get into the penguin enclosure, nabbed himself a baby penguin, stuffed it in his backpack, and returned to where he'd been sitting!

The bit that amazes me... through all this time nobody noticed him inside the penguin enclosure!

So my aunty called up the zoo...
"yes hello... I'd like to speak to the, errrrrr, missing penguin department!"

The zoo couldn't come and pick him up until the following morning, but told them to put the penguin in the bathroom, with the bathtub full of iced water. ubblol

The next morning they arrived to pick up the poor penguin, and fined them 50 for theft of a penguin.

I'm glad to report that the penguin is now safe and sound, back with his parents in the zoo!

Crikey... let that be a lesson to all of you. Stealing pengiuns is bad and wrong, and it has a severe punishment.

Posted:I want one too! Pleeeeeeeease can I borrow your cousin's friend's brother????

I was told yesterday that a while ago a rugby team stayed in a hotel close to the Edinburgh zoo. Apparently, when they left the room service found a penguin in one of their rooms, too. I wonder if there's a secret penguin-napper society somewhere, and if I could join.

How about we all go to the park (where we know security is slack) and we raid it for adorable baby animals? We can get that kid to show us the weak spots in the perimeter... biggrin

After much consideration, I find that the view is worth the asphyxiation.
