The penguin drove around the corner to a service
station and asked the mechanic to take a look at
it. The mechanic said he had a few others to look
at first but if he came back in an hour he could
tell the penguin what was wrong with his car. The
penguin agreed and went for a walk.
He found an ice-cream shop and thought a big bowl
of vanilla ice cream would really hit the spot,
since he was a penguin and it was Arizona in the
summer, after all. He sat down at the counter and
started in on his ice cream. Of course he had no
hands so it was rather messy. By the time he was
done he had ice cream all over his flippers, and
his mouth was a total mess.
He walked back to the service station and said
to the mechanic, "Did you find out what is wrong
with my car?"
The mechanic replied, "It looks like you've
blown a seal."
"No no," said the penguin. "It's just ice cream."
