9:40 AM -- From Expatica, the Website for expatriate bipeds in Germany:

  • Shy Swedish female penguins sent to seduce "homosexual" male Humboldt penguins in a German zoo have failed to break up any of the male-male twosomes, officials said Wednesday...

    Last year, officials said the females had arrived too late for pairing. And this year, the birds arrived in time, but were too shy...

    Last year, homosexual militants bombarded the zoo on Germany's North Sea coast with e-mails and protest letters, charging that it was interfering in the penguins' freedom of sexual orientation.

    Kueck rejected this. She said the way penguins pair has nothing to do with personality but is a behavioural oddity of the species whenever females are in short supply.

Well, there ya go: Zoos are just animal prisons.
