Eggplant Penguins

Meanwhile . . .  back in northern California, WV correspondent and specialist in critical vegetable studies Morel Tea reported on the sighting of two emperor eggplant penguins at the veggie mecca known as Berkeley Bowl. Tea writes:

While I was at the bowl today, curiosity led me to investigate a most peculiar sound--something like a low muttering--which seemed to be coming from the southernmost corner of the produce section. Much to my surprise, I happened upon this happy pair of emperor penguins, dressed up as Indian eggplants, who were passing the afternoon by exchanging bawdy jokes . . .
The penguins had surely been on the run from pesky naturalists and German documentarians driving them to the brink of insanity in their native South Pole, swimming north and taking shelter in markets along the way with this crafty disguise. No doubt they were hoping to land in the homey yet elegant North Berkeley home of a pair of professors, living it up on the patio while drinking in endless sunset views of the Bay.
