Gay Penguin Goes Straight

This has been bubbling around out there for a while; just getting around to noting it. I know it's old.

The animal kingdom's most famous gay couple has split up. Silo and Roy, the cohabiting penguins of Central Park Zoo, are no longer an item.

The pair rose to prominence six years ago when they came out with their same-sex relationship.

Silo tearfully confessed that "telling his father" was the most difficult part.

Since then, they have successfully hatched and raised an adoptive chick (after an uncertain start that involved trying to incubate a rock).

Well, yes, that's really not the sort of image these Gay Penguin Activists wanted to project. Fortunately, these Stonewall Rebels of the flightless-bird world have had some success:

They blazed a trail for six other gay penguin couples at the zoo.

I could not even begin to guess at what this sentence could possibly mean. Unless they mean these predatory perverted puffinkin "recruited" other penguins into the "gay penguin lifestyle"?

But the affair ended when Scrappy, a new female penguin, moved into the neighbourhood and caught Silo's eye.

...

Silo promptly moved in with Scrappy, building a new nest with her.

You know the writer wanted to call Scrappy a whore. I think a different edit of this story did in fact refer to Scrappy as a "homewrecker."

A little bit of cutesy joking, yes, but you know that the media was really rooting for these young kids to make it together.

Zookeepers are at a loss to explain Silo's sudden conversion.

I'll say it: penguin pooter. Is there anything it can't do?

But seriously, some homosexuality is opportunistic, or rather lack-of-opportunistic. Guys in prison don't suddenly start having sex with other dudes because they've just decided to "experiment" while in a college-like environment.
