    Minor nitpick, Mr. Rubin: penguin chicks are GREY.
    Or maybe that was an error of the colorist…

    This would have seemed hilarious fifty years ago.

    The J.A.M. .. if the chick WAS grey, few, including myself, would easily “get” the joke. I think this is called “artistic license” or something…

    @The J.A.M.

    I appreciated your comment. I used to point out things like this to my grade school science teachers all the time, and one of them took me in the hall and told me to quit being a smartass. I mean, she said light from from the sun took 7 seconds to reach earth, and Allosaurs were red like the illustration in the science book. I’ve done it in some of these GoComics cartoons and get nasty comments from loyal fans. Life is absurd, and we might as well laugh, because the alternative is worse.

    I feel your pain :D
    I don’t think I was a smart@$$, but I was one of the more intelligent kids.
    I taught my SCIENCE teacher how to pronounce the word “photosynthesis”.
    And no, Hardhar, I’m not an ornithologist. I just HAPPEN to have paid attention to biology class in high school.
    AND I saw “Happy Feet” too :D

    I’m with Manhunter. I wouldn’t have known either. That being said, I appreciate comments like that. The old “ya learn sumpin ever day”, and all that.

    Then, again, birds wouldn’t know the difference. I had a friend that put duck eggs under a chicken. The old biddy raised them as her own.
    She got a mite flustered when they first went swimming, but she got used to it.

    So much for the bluebird of happiness!

    Seems funny even today. I mean, if every cartoon was dissected for accuracy there probably would no talking birds, dinosaurs, etc.That’s the problem with people these days. They are just too damn serious. It’s the absurdity that makes cartoons funny. JAM, you have a valid point. When in doubt always blame the colorist.
