king penguins

look, he said
look mum there are ten million king penguins
the man took a picture and they all put their smart feathers on
cos, cos                ummm                      he sent a letter
                                          before he came so they had time to put their smart feathers on.

-well sweetheart, they wear those feathers every day, they are fixed on.

no they aren’t


what is it ralph, what you got there?

some letter, from some bloke about an article in the Observer, he wants to take photographs

Cool, that’s great, we need the publicity

Publicity is all very well, but you know what it means, don’t you


We’ll only have to put our best feathers on, and you know what a hulabaloo that creates in the masses
