Jackass Penguins?

Whose idea was it to name these cute little penguins such a ludicrous name?

Wha...?

I don't get it either...

Maybe they spend all their time hanging out with Johnny Knowville and stapling their butt cheeks together?

That makes a lot of sense. I wonder if they'll have difficulty marketing this in the movie sequel entitled, "March Of The Jackass Penguins".

Jen had the same train of thought as me. Maybe they act like jackasses.

It just doesn't make sense to me either. Of course, maybe these people are literalists. We haven't seen these penguins from the rear. Maybe they carry around little spare jacks on their butts... the penguins, not the people who named them. Ok, it's a stretch. I don't get it either.

By some stretch of the imagination the face, especially the one in profile, kind of is shaped like a jackasses, by which I mean a donkey, not Michael Moore et al. :) Only reasonable hypothesis I can muster up. Personally, I don't think jackass is such a great name for a jackass, but then language is funny the way words take on different connotations over time. Can you imagine a modern show including the phrase "you'll have a gay old time" in the context the Flintstones did?

Maybe despite their good looks they are really very rude penguins.
Like, they don't give up their bus seats to old ladies or they'll snake that parking spot you've been patiently waiting to pull into or they play practical jokes that they think are funny but are really just mean-spirited, embarrassing and hurtful.
Perhaps they will interupt other penguins stories with tales of their own exploits in an attempt at one-up-penguin-ship that fails to aggrandize them, instead making them look like pompous asses, or jackasses.
It's a mystery.
They are cute though.
Do you think they will live in my deep freezer?

sadly, when we called her a jackass, and it became "leave your donkey at home" we didnt realize we were insulting a penguin...

if that doesnt make sense perhaps i should elaborate. we call my husbands mom "grandma donkey" because she acts like a jackass when she drinks, thus who ever brought her is told to leave their donkey at home. donkey just kind of stuck to her. perhaps i will call her "the penguin" as a private joke with myself. but then someoen will think i mean batman, and i dont, or worse someone will think i mean the nun from blues brothers, and she AINT no nun! ive babbled on now, happy new year!

I didn't hear that the stolen penguin was returned. If it wasn't, it's probably dead by now.
