According to at least one school of thought, the thieving penguin on David Attenborough's BBC smash hit series 'Frozen Planet' was probably a Scouser.
So says Donald Skoob, 93, a janitor at Salford University.
Viewers of the nature documentary were thrilled and tickled at the same time, as they watched a cheeky penguin repeatedly rob rocks from a hard working neighbour's nest, in order to line his own.
To add insult to injury, the thieving penguin then rounded on a fellow thief who was trying to steal rocks from his nest.
"That penguin had to be a Scouser," said the world weary janitor. "I know he was down the antarctic with the polar bears and the snow leopards and what have you, but you can bet your bottom dollar he was a Scouser. That's the sort of thing Scousers excel at. Nicking stuff. Especially dubious penalties at Anfield, hub caps, designer trackies and trainers and push bikes. You've got to love 'em though for their natural wit and their innate sense of fairness."
More as we get it.
(*Editor's Note: Donald Skoob is absolutely clueless. There are no Polar Bears in the Antarctic, they're up the other end in the Arctic Circle. And snow leopards are native to the Himalayas, and the attics of certain unscrupulous individuals. The mans an utter twat.)
