    Isn’t he being released back in the Southern Ocean before kick-off? That must be disappointing.

    Stupid bird should have been shot – just like whoever the Mr Toocleverbyhalf at Telecom was.

    I thought we weren’t allowed any roots, grass or otherwise.

    Saatchi and Saatchi should sign Jack up and get rid of the pimply adolescents who dreamed up this crap.

    If we keep him here for the World Cup, could someone please keep an eye on Andrew Hore?

    Ah New Zealand. Invent nothing but freely use the name somebody else paid $200 million to develop and roll out a movie about. Enjoy tons of free publicity.

    Exhibit A: Happy Feet

    Exhibit B: Shrek the Sheep.

    Very uninspiring.

    About the only thing that hasn’t been done to death about that penguin is the penguin. Otherwise it would have been a good idea, except for the ongoing intrusion into the rehab, even the Lohans get more respite from the media.

    The penguin has had his passage on the Tangaroa sailing for the Auckland Islands confirmed & he departs at the end of the month. Unless you can think of a stand in for him we may be doomed to another brainfart from Saatchi & Saatchi.

    Happy Feet would be perfect, even Telecom should like him, he probably hasn’t had any tail for months.

    Happy Feet is a penguin, not a seal.

    Of course, but the resident moron doesn’t worry about detail. He just makes shit up – you know that. :)
