A Mexican newspaper reports that bored Royal Air Force pilots stationed
on the Falkland Islands have devised what they consider a marvelous new
game. Noting that the local penguins are fascinated by airplanes, the pilots
search out a beach where the birds are gathered and fly slowly along it at
the water's edge. Perhaps ten thousand penguins turn their heads in unison
watching the planes go by, and when the pilots turn around and fly back, the
birds turn their heads in the opposite direction, like spectators at a
slow-motion tennis match. Then, the paper reports, "The pilots fly out to
sea and directly to the penguin colony and overfly it. Heads go up, up, up,
and ten thousand penguins fall over gently onto their backs.
