Giant Penguins Invade Cambridge!


"Hey Kate."

"What?"

"There's a guy walking behind us."

"So? This is King's Parade, Tom. The centre of Cambridge. There are TONS of people walking around us."

"No, no, I think this guy's a bit...weird."

"Why?"

"For some reason, he's carrying a giant penguin."

Sigh. The things I do for art...

Oh, I don't think you can humiliate yourself if you're shameless (see labels).

Penguin looks smashing though. Especially since I'm not the one to carry it round in public, hahahaha...

HospitalPhoenix said...

Does the penguin have a name?

The Angry Medic said...

Dan: Whine whine. It's a harmless penguin. And quite nice, too. Try taking it to bed with you. It's useful on those long, lonely nights...

Kenny: Heh. My capacity to humiliate myself is quite large, unfortunately... :(

And thanks! It's great publicity, actually. Especially when you have to carry it around in public, cos if the sight of a giant penguin doesn't attract people, your red face will:P

HospitalPhoenix: It does. It's a he, and his name is Polly.

Polly is very nice to hold.

Nice name, no?

zewt said...

"His" name is polly??????? geee...

are u going to name your son polly?

dan said...

i'm not taking to bed anything else except a nice, hot, singaporean girl. :P

polly was very well-behaved last night, especially since i stayed up to 7am to complete my assignments. :P

and thanks for the clubbing music, it made work quite fun. boogie time.

Ahhh! Humping the Humboldt on long lonely nights eh. Must be one sanguine penguin that one is!

You must have an Emperor-sized member for a 'happy fit' for your Ms 'Happy Feet' *teehee*

p/s Whether you mind or not,you're already on me blogroll. lol!

Do you play a penguin?

The Angry Medic said...

Zewt: Hahahahaha...we all named our penguins weird names. Mine is named after a character I play in the show called 'Polly' (tied to the fact that Polly is a common name for a pirate's parrot; however the animal I play is, um, rather far removed from a parrot. Ahem.)

The Quiet Storm: Ah, such wily wordplay! This confirms my sneaky suspicions as to who you are. Sorry if you weren't comfy with that comment on your blog, do delete it if you don't want people to know. I'm very glad you finally have a blog I can comment back on :)

Ooh, and thanks for the link. I've got you on my blogroll too. I'll be dropping by soon.

(Oh, and you're right about the Emperor bit. But you're still a perv. *slap*)

SkinnyMinny8: Ooh, you finally drop by! And heh, no I do not play a penguin. The Medics Revue is a series of sketches, so I play different roles, ranging from Osama bin Laden's mother to Barney the Dinosaur. The penguin is in the show, though, and I...do things to it at one point. Ahem.

It's nice and soft though.

Really HP this being Cambridge of course Polly is short for Polonius.How about inviting SHP and Solo to the revue, those girls sure and hell need cheering up.

The Quiet Storm said...

Medic: Thanks for the spanky,
Your Royal Highness of the nether region! *hee*

howling said...

Hi Angry... Where did you get the idea that Polly is a common name for a pirate's parrot??? I Googled it and all I came up with is a list of lusty groupies. It's a docile animal, I agree, but your penguin is definitely not from that kind of 'petting' zoo.

The Angry Medic said...

Anonymous 10.28am: Ah, I can see you're familiar with Cambridge etymology. My moniker itself is really short for Angricus Medicus, but I don't use it for fear of getting beaten up by chavs.

And I'd invite SHP and Solo over in a heartbeat, but I don't think SHP likes me very much. She'd prolly throw rotten tomatoes at me or something...

NurseWilliam: Ooh, you ER people. Always going straight to where it matters, eh? Perv. *slap*

Kenny Mah: I know! Not very quiet at all, is she? ;)

Beajerry: Yep, like the anonymous dude said, they're print. Though it's not just one penguin, there are 8, and they all have different patterns...one had the Revue logo stamped on its chest bilaterally resembling a certain pair of female organs, and another was covered in stickers resembling cats, particularly in a certain part of its anatomy...

Ah, the results of letting a bunch of medics loose on an inflatable penguin.

The Angry Medic said...

Quiet Storm: Oh. Oh gawd. I handed that to you on a silver platter, didn't I? You know, you'd make a great addition to the Medics Revue. Some of our sketches are downright obscene. Right up your alley (geddit?) :)

Howling: Oh no you don't. That Quiet Storm's gotten to you too, hasn't she? Perv!

Ah, but Polly enjoys petting too. On every part of his anatomy. Oh yeah.

isnt that nikil in the pic? and preety too?

The Angry Medic said...

Uhm...I have no idea, I didn't know anyone in that pic. There was just a random gaggle of people standing around the penguin...it seemed to be quite good at attracting people, for some reason.
