So, first of all, who gave World Nut Daily a seat in the White House press corps? I hope National Lampoon has a place then, too. "Does the Commander-in-Chief approve or disapprove of bestiality in our armed forces?" Heh, heh. Yeah, inquiring minds want to know.

At least White House Press Secretary Jay Carney  didn't dignify that with an answer. And you could see the journalists in the room (I'm not going to say "other journalists") smiling in amusement at the crazy. But is this what our nation has become? What is World Nut Daily doing there?

And the whole idea of "gay penguins" is kind of ridiculous. You can't look at another species, especially one so distantly related to our own, and anthropomorphize them like this. Yeah, this really is a subject that deserves satire, and that's the case whether you're "pro" or "anti" hot gay penguin sex.
