The Penguin Joke: Two Penguins on an Ice Floe
Two penguins are standing on an ice floe.
The first penguin says, “You look like you’re wearing a tuxedo.”
The second penguin says, “What makes you think I’m not?”
Even homespun humorist of Lake Woebegon radio fame, Garrison Keillor, serves up the funny with his own version of the Penguin Joke in the 2006 movie adaptation of Prairie Home Companion. In the film, Keillor shares the joke with “a Dangerous Woman” who in turn asks, “Why is that funny?” Keillor replies, “I guess because people laugh at it.” To which the “Dangerous Woman” responds, “I’m not laughing.” Keillor retorts, “You’re an angel.” Oh, forget it. Just go watch the movie.
