5. They are Penguins my good man,
You don't need fresh. Frozen will be just as good.

15. Honestly, 'flash frozen' is just as good.
I've tried both and I can't really tell the difference.
Juicy and succulent.
No 'gamey' taste at all.
And NO pinfeathers!
;-)

6. Check with Tobin S.
He was driving a truck load of penguins to the local exhibit recently when his truck broke down. He flagged down a brother trucker (I said brother!), and gave him a thousand dollars to take the penguins to the zoo. Later, after his truck had been towed to the mechanic, Tobin was heading back down the road, and saw the same guy, with the penguins lined up behind him. Tobin said, "I told you to take these penguins to the zoo!" The guy said, "I did, and I had some money left over, so now I'm taking them to the movies."

If you can find out which movie they went to, you could score big!

9. My suggestion would be to rig an incubator and hatch 'em yourself!



"Soon"



Bet you can't eat just one!






For Xtra cash, you can always sell your surplus to your neighbors.

A good size roaster is going for $1.39 a pound around here.

28. Go to the Jackson Market on D Street at 3:15AM.
There's a dumpster out back.

There you will meet a man named "Bobby" wearing a fez.

Approach him with, "Why, someone has eaten all the sorbet."

He will respond with, "You have a hell of a lot of explaining to do, Lucius."

Bring small, unmarked bills in a plastic Tom Thumb bag.

16. You could try salt cured smoked penguin...
but they tend to be a bit dry unless you use them in a ragu.

17. You might have to buy a duck and a chicken and fake it.
Take some parts from one and a few parts from the other.

Now one will know what a penguin tastes like, except for a walrus.

18. Walruses live in the Arctic, penguins live in Antarctica
So no walrus has ever tasted a penguin.
