Penguins Have Evolved! Now have Burial Rituals!

Have you ever noticed any dead penguins on the ice? Even in all those wildlife documentaries? Never. Why?...

Penguins have recently been observed burying their dead and conducting a funeral rite. An older penguin suffered an illness and died. A group of penguins began to dig through the snow using their webbed feet and then bills to peck a penguin sized hole in the ice. They pushed the older penguin's body into the hole and covered him up with the chopped ice.

Then the whole colony gathered in a circle around the fallen elder and began to sing, "Freeze a Jolly Good Fellow, Freeze a Jolly Good Fellow..."
A group of chess enthusiasts checked into a hotel and were standing in the lobby discussing their recent tournament victories. After about an hour, the manager came out of the office and asked them to disperse.

"But why?" they asked, as they moved off.

"Because," he said, "I can't stand chess-nuts boasting in an open foyer."
An old man was eating at a truck stop minding his own business, when three dangerous-looking bikers walked in.

The first walked up to the old man, pushed his cigarette into his pie and then took a seat at the counter.

The second walked up to the old man, spit into his milk and then took a seat at the counter.

The third walked up to the old man, turned over his plate, and then took a seat at the counter.

Without a word, the old man quietly paid for his meal and left the diner.

One of the bikers said to the waitress, “Humph, not much of a man, was he?”

The waitress replied, “And not much of a truck driver either. He just backed his truck over three motorcycles.”
