today i learned – fri 21st sept 2018

i honestly stumbled across this whilst trying to learn about something else … regardless, it’s wonderful 🙈

#tdil a 10-year-old lad once stole a penguin from france and smuggled it home 🐧

the kid was on holiday in france with his rents when they visited the local zoo … whilst there, he somehow managed to get his hands on a penguin 😳

he then managed to wrap the penguin up in a towel and pop it in his backpack … just before jumping on the ferry home 🙈

throughout this little escapade, his parents knew absolutely nothing 😅 they only found out about his great heist when they wandered into the bathroom, later that night, and found the happy little critter swimming about in the bath 😂 #shock

as you can imagine, it didn’t go down all that well 🙈 and they were straight on the blower to the rspca 👍🏻 they, in turn, contacted a zoo in colchester that ultimately took the bird in 😁

the lad was hugely apologetic for the whole thing … saying that he “just wanted to give the little guy a new home 😢”. due to this heartwarming excuse, the police (both here and in calais) let him off 👍🏻

i guess the moral of the story is that you can quite easily be a master criminal – just make sure you’re really cute when the po po come calling 😉

laters! 🐧 #tdil
