Because they’re afraid of Wales!
We have however persuaded a colony of real live penguins to face up to their fears and grace our shores at this year’s Ski and Snowboard Show – they did in fact admit they couldn’t resist the idea of the après, they’ll be they the ones drinking their vodka on the rocks.
Keeping our beaky friends company will be St Bernard puppies – make sure the kids haven’t been watching Beethoven lately – and a pack of Huskies. Not all together we might add.
To top it all off, the nation’s most loveable penguin Pingu will be making an appearance and hanging out at his igloo home so make sure you keep your eyes peeled.
To share our excitement at the thought of all these furry critters at the show we’re having a joke competition on our Facebook page – simply like our page here and tell us your best penguin joke. Our favourite will win a pair of tickets to the Ski and Snowboard Show so get posting now – you have just over a week to share your comic genius with us*.
Oh and just to get you even more excited we couldn’t help but share this:
* Competition ends Friday 19th October.
