Fish Tale

Penguins are good swimmers with flippers and feet, they move very well in the water. But instead this penguin wanted a boat, with oars and all the boat fodder. He went out to sea with confidence high looking forward to what will entail, But in a moment of fate, with a splash just like bait, ended up in the belly of a whale. For most this situation would make someone stress and could not be considered an upper, But this little penguin with the least of distress, settled down and cooked himself supper. Now the thing about penguins is they like to eat fish. In fact they eat fish quite a lot. If fish are the gold at the end of the rainbow, then this giant whale is the pot. He cut up the oars and stacked them up neatly, in a stack made ready to ignite. From the lantern on his boat he lit up the stack, came a fire burning warm with delight. With a fish on a stick he had himself sit to wait for the fish he would roast, but his actions it seems were just a bit much for the insides of this big host. The smoke from the fire in the whale did cause this massive sea mammal to breach, With a powerful splash and a lot of commotion landed high and dry on the beach
