Toasting the penguins

Be the 1st to vote.

It appears the US division is busy writing stories for people in Toronto.

This story is so flowery and bull-embellished I don’t know where to start.

Yet, if false, it is another . I get that diving into unknown waters is dangerous. I myself hit the bottom of an unmarked hotel swimming pool and nearly killed a tooth.

Apparently he’s not that missed – not one comment in the past 11 days! C’mon writers –  better backstopping of stories please!

Oh, and here’s the bridge,  (note all the statistics of it) since none of the writers bothered to show it. My guess is the water is probably fairly shallow … but wouldn’t a lifeguard, as this person is said to have been, have at least gone feet first?
