    Did Polar Bear learn to spell from the crocs?

    If Mr. Penguin had any sense, he’d fake a flipper injury and make Wifey go get the fish.

    She must have purchased a life insurance policy on her tuxedo clad husband. None of her suggestions would lead to her getting something to eat…

    You’re kidding — with penguins, it’s the female who’s the dumb one?

    Nottatreek is an island in Hudson Bay in Nunavut. Must be where the bear is from.

    Okay, so Dear can read (better than Polar Bear can write). But that doesn’t mean she is being wiser than Honey (unless her whole intent is a hard-divorce).

    If Mr. Shatner or Mr. Stewart made the sign, would it read “NOT A TREK”?!?

    Now it is just derivative… Zebras and Crocs in Pinguin and Polar Bear suits… That is actually a red herring!

    I am really missing the crocs – it’s been 6 weeks or so – the polar bear is not a substitute.

    Sen. McCarthy never met a dead herring that he didn’t believe was a red herring

    With penguins, it’s the dads who hatch the eggs while the mums are off gorging on fish. After the chick is hatched, she’ll come back and help feed it. So I’m guessing, it’s Dad who’ll have to be the bright one.

    So where is the dolphin-eating killer whale? Seems like the type who’d enjoy a polar bear treat. (Or can he swim? We’ve only seen him on land.)

    The question is:“Are penguins white with black areas or are they black with white areas?”

    This story line is getting old. should we expect a monster sized character from another strip like “Jeffrey”.

    What is so funny about this is the bear has yet to figure it out.TIP THE ICE OVER.Now Penguins in water.Crocs would have figured it out by now…..I think….maybe.
