Ya know i honestly can't tell if that site is a joke or not.. Here and there i see things that make me want to think its a very well laid out joke.

I mean comon.. in the FAQ's

Q: Why does my penguin keep bumping into walls?
A: Penguins, like humans, are prone to eye deterioration over time. Vision correction may be necessary for your penguin's welfare. We highly suggest laser surgery correction as many penguins do not take well to eyewear.

Well, I'm pretty sure that Eau Claire, WI doesn't have a 71st street, and the Zipcode is for another town entirely ...

... actually, the Zipcode is for MY town, but I deny all responsibility for any penguin related commercial activities ...

...

... Really, I had NOTHING to do with it ... Embarassed

...

Now if you will excuse me, I have to go answer the doorbell - I think the krill-delivery truck is here ...

If you really want to rid your house of pesky krill, you would do much better by adopting a Blue Whale... Shocked

Absolutely!!

I adopted a blue whale yesterday, and now my house has no krill in it whatsoever!

It's amazing how well it works!

Eh? I keep him in my fishtank, along with Nessie and the giant squid, but lately the whale and the squid have been getting on each others nerves.

Does he know how to bounce on a spring? That might keep him busy.

Here's a good reason to keep your adopted penguin chained in the back yard. Shocked

Or feed him to your Blue Whale.

Or chain him down the road, far to the left, if you can.
