Penguin Thoughts: You Decide

Penguin Thoughts: You Decide

I have had some great responses to the penguin thoughts.  So what I’ve decided to do is take the 4 photos that were posted, post the pictures here and my favourite 2 comments from each of them.  At the bottom you will have a chance to vote on your favourite quote.  The winner will take home a print of their choice from my photo Gallery.

Vote simply by leaving a comment in the comment box below. All you have to do is type in the week and the quoter. You can vote only once, but feel free to persuade others to vote via twitter, facebook, or the comment box.  The winner will be announced Thursday, February 17.

Week 1

It was him! by Brendan van Son

The Quotes:

“Mom. This is Brian. I’m … gay. (Poor Brian. He’s not as loud and proud as Kevin is about the whole thing. Next photo: Brian tells HIS parents (feathers fly).)” – Torre
“You’ve gotta be kidding, you’re dumping me….for this guy?!” – Liz
““But HE’s the one who pushed me off the rock telling me I WOULD fly instinctively!” – Ana

Week 3

The Quotes:
Ehavely – “1. (evil penguin) Go for it, splurge of the fish ice cream. You earned it.
2. Hmm, should I have the fattening fish ice cream?
3. (good penguin) Don’t throw your diet off track. Resist the urge!””

Torre – “1: Sorry, sir. Can’t let you in. We’re full.
2: But … there’s nobody else here?
3: Honeeeeey do something! I need to pee!!!!”
