Awesome. (I thought it was David Attenborough too.)
You make me feel soooooo much better.
How perfect to have Terry Jones do that..the man who fought the giant electric penguin in the Python version of Scott of The Antarctic…
I had forgotten about that — I think I need to re-discover Monty Python. And only partly because my life seems like a long python skit!
Remember “Flo” from the old series “Alice” who often said, “When donkeys fly…” Well,… This was cute, Elyse. Thanks!
Or pigs which is what my dad used to say!
The presence of Terry Jones was the only reason I suspected it was fake. Otherwise I would have been showing my son and teaching him penguins can really fly.
I didn’t recognize him. I thought it was Richard Attenborough. Sigh.
If your son believes in Peter Pan (and I’m not saying he does), he should also believe in flying penguins. THEY actually make sense. I mean, a bird that can’t fly?
Now come on, how can you POSSIBLY make a case for either Peter Pan or penguins to fly?!? (This from the guy who defends and supports dragons….. 😉 )
You gotta believe. And not grow up. You’re pretty good in the latter, John.
Bless you, my liege! 😀
This is great – just so great! Loved it 🙂 🙂 🙂
Very convincing. Hilarious. Pigs might fly, too.
You never know. But if they do, check the date!
The English have had some great ones over the years. There was the one about switching to driving on the right side of the road, but making the change-over gradually; and The Guardian always has some good ones, like the Pro-Monarchy party taking control, and switching their news to an all-twitter format.
With all that pretending to be serious, the Brits are often a real hoot. I love the idea of switching sides of the road slowly.
Oh God, somewhere out there someone is blaming this on Global Warming, or the lack thereof.
Absolutely. Those damn Toucans probably caused it! Happy April Fool’s Day.
They totally got me lol.
It is pretty convincing, isn’t it?
Or I’m just a super huge dork.
Well, we all have our dorky moments!
I remember this and I also revisit it from time to time. Love it! But while I agree it’s the best now… the really best first crazy one was the spaghetti harvest: http://news.bbc.co.uk/onthisday/hi/dates/stories/april/1/newsid_2819000/2819261.stm
Oh yeah, I loved that too. I was trying to find out what they did this year, but haven’t found it yet. I’ll post that if I find it! Thanks for reminding me to plant my spaghetti bushes!
I don’t know what they did, either. If you find it, let me know! 🙂
I’ll be sure to post it! Why limit the silliness to one day a year?
Ps. Your lobbying worked over at B-man…you’re winning!
Hehehehe. And that, my dear, is how 1985 became The Oil Heat Centennial.
Well played Elyse, well played indeed…..hahahaha!
This was SO good. So good.
Isn’t it brilliant? It’s a few years old, but worth repeating.
Check out Bing.com. They have a great animated background today. And Google has unveiled the Beta test version of Google Smell. ‘Nuff said.
That’s really funny — I googled “Google Smell” and I can get a wet dog smell! Yummy. Of course, I don’t need an app for that — I have Cooper …
In offices all over the world, water cooler discussions are taking place on how penguins can fly. To the office skeptic, they say, “No really, it’s true. I saw it online!”
I saw it on BBC might make people believe. Who would think they’d be joking. This is a few years old, but a classic nevertheless !
Reblogged this on The ObamaCrat.Com™ and commented:
Thanks for the reblog, buddy. Hope nobody pulls the wool over on you today!
I like wool!! 😆
Not enough to watch Fox, though, thankfully.
Oh I never watch Faux Spews either.
I am not at all surprised!
… and somewhere, Ken Ham and Ray Comfort are completely losing their minds because they think this is real.
It’s a few years old. But I do love it!
Damn it I thought it was real. I actually asked my husband. Sigh.
Don’t feel bad, El. It was on the news … and now on to Google nose …
