Penguin Couple Gets Married 28 Times For Valentine’s Day

By: Ami Angelowicz / February 14, 2012

In honor of Valentine’s Day, this penguin pair got married every day, twice a day, from Feb. 1-14, at China’s Shanghai Ocean Aquarium. Their Groundhogs Day-style ceremony went something like this: the couple arrived in a lucite box via remote-controlled Audi followed by a processional of two humans in penguin suits, they exchange head wreaths in front of a crowd of onlookers and rubbed beaks to seal the deal. And this is supposed to be romantic? Twenty-eight weddings in one month? I’m surprised they still can stand to be in the same lucite box with one another. I’m sure those gay penguins in Montreal are feeling really shitty about this ostentatious mockery of of the institution. If this doesn’t move the penguin community to organize for penguin marriage equality, I don’t know what will. [Dlisted]
