Woohoo for penguin prostitution! [Jan. 30th, 2006|12:18 pm]

[music |whining. *sigh*]

Scientists at the South Pole found that female penguins make males pay to have sex with them. Payment is in the form of stones, which the females need for nest platforms. The researchers on the Antarctica’s Ross Island observed that paired females sneak away from their mates and approach the nests of unpaired males. After mating, the female grabs a stone to take back to her nest. Sometimes merely flirting with the single males will win femailes a stone.

I hope so too, but I doubt it. I think they're going for a song.

Well, human females require "stones" (in diamond form, of course) to get married to human males... Kinda the same thing.

I have new respect for penguins!! First the guys are gay, and now the girls hoebags.

Hmmm, wonder if I could find the right pic for a hoebag penguin icon? That'd be so awesome *and random*!

Mmm.. I don't know if I'd classify them as hoebags, so much. They're doing what they need to to get by.

I think someone may have said this already....but in the human race women want 'rocks' from their mates too. Later we want, a new house, car, charge card, and TIVO!
