Overheard at the Denver International Airport recently as Pat and Penny Penguin from Seaworld in San Antonio ducked (can I say that?) through the metal detector:
"Why do I have to go through this thing? It's not like I'm going to highjack the plane to Antarctica or anything."
"Just do it and quit complaining. Remember, we'll do anything for fish. Wish they'd let me belly-slide through, though."
Thank goodness someone is keeping us safe from fish-toting, non-flying birds! They are awfully cute, though.
