THE PENGUINS

Orly Borges Personal Collection

The Penguins

 
   

This man had to take a bunch of penguins to the zoo for the new exhibit. On the way into town his truck broke down and he pulled over to the side of the road. A guy pulls up next to him and says, 'Hey, do you need some help?'

The man says, 'Actually, all I need is to get these penguins to the zoo. If I give you fifty bucks will you make sure you take them?' So the guy takes the money and the penguins and takes off.

The man went to fix his truck and an hour later he's pulling up in the town to go check on the penguins. He stops at a red light and looks across the road and sees the guy walking with all the penguins following behind him. The man gets out of his truck and screams at the guy, 'Hey! What are you doing. I thought I gave you fifty bucks to get the penguins to the zoo!'

The guy turns with a big smile and says, 'I did take them to the zoo and I had some money left over so now I'm taking them to the movies.'
