This epic fight between two male penguins has gotten social media in a frenzy as the story is more than what even a reality show can provide.
It has all the elements of a good story – the hero, the villain, the tragic story arc that tugs at the heartstrings. It even ends sadly for our hero, in the tradition of all great Shakespearean tragedies.
A video posted online by National Geographic narrates the entire story from start to finish and captures the bloody ensuing fight. Penguin 1 returns to his nest to find his wife with another male, penguin 2.
Annoyed, he wastes no time attacking penguin 2 with his flippers, intending to beat him bloody so he flees. But the casanova stands his ground until eventually they both tire and break the fight.
Devastated, the husband makes an appeal to his lovely wife to choose between the two of them….unfortunately, she chooses the boyfriend.
Annoyed again, the husband tries another attack which turns way bloody this time. Still, he’s unable to beat the lover, and when he asked the wife to choose again, she still chose penguin 2.
Devastated, penguin 1 has no option but to sadly leave the nest, whilst his wife and her new lover go inside to have the time of their lives. Life suxxxxx for this penguin.
