Birds Need Antidepressants To Survive Living In England

At the Scarborough Sea Life Sanctuary in the northeast of England (England, for the uninitiated, is a series of small wet rocks in the North Atlantic Ocean), penguins have been given anti-depressants because penguins are apparently pretty perceptive and are aware of the awful place in which they live. This winter has been the wettest on record in Scarborough, and while the Humboldt penguin (native to coastal Chile) is perfectly capable of dealing with brutal cold, these particular penguins are no match for the psyche-destroying sleet of an English winter. Hopefully they'll be kept away from the knives.

They should come to NYC! It's cold but at least we have better food!

@GailPink Scarborough has excellent fish n chips. Also, the spotted dick can be pretty tasty, and certain sybarites who know have told me that at the right restaurants the black pudding is exquisite.

I've often thought that people who scoff, so to speak, at English food just haven't been taken to the right places.
