Four Happy Penguins


Polly stops at a gas station to fill up.

A man who works there sees four penguins in the back seat and asks, "Why do you have four penguins in your car?"

Polly says, "I stopped at a red light and they climbed in! What should I do with them?"

The man thinks for a second and says, "Maybe you should take them to the zoo."

"That's a good idea. I'll do that," says Polly.

A few days later Polly returns to the gas station. The man sees the same four penguins in the car. But now they're wearing sunglasses!

"What's going on?" asks the man. "I thought you were taking those penguins to the zoo."

"I did take them to the zoo!" answered Polly. "We had such a great time, that today I thought I'd take them to the beach!"
