Is there a reason we need penguins to tell this story?

Happy Feet, the story of an emperor penguin looking for his, umm, heart song. ‘Cause emperor penguins, umm, need heart songs to find mates.


Not quite as bad as giving male cows udders or pretending worker ants are male, but still–watching March of the Penguins, which I actually enjoyed in many ways, was hard enough. (lnhammer nearly had to hold me in my seat when the announcer explained that the penguins were waiting out a blizzard “at the South Pole.”) This one, I think, I’m gonna have to pass on.

Makes me crave a few good nature documentaries, it does. Because emperor penguins are pretty cool and compelling on their own, actually, even especially without heart songs.
