Penguins Enter Matrimony

Now, as a reward for being the most outstanding parents in the Polarland Zoo in northeast China, two gay male penguins have entered matrimony! The pair were married Tuesday in a special Chinese ceremony. One wore a tie and the other was dressed in a red blouse – a traditional Chinese bridal color – as they stepped into their icy wedding room to the music of the Wedding March.  “They have been a good couple and deserved their reward,” said their keeper. The penguins tried diligently to be fathers and kept stealing eggs from their female cohorts. Finally, veterinarians allowed the two to care for eggs rejected by their mothers. Upon hatching, the fathers immediately provided love and care for their children and became the best parents within the zoo. Congratulations to the happy couple. Science has shown strong evidence homosexuality is a trait largely inherited from genetics. Perhaps one day, our society will be educated enough to understand that and give gay and lesbian people the same rights as everyone else.
