A penguin is driving along, eating an ice cream, when his car starts making a funny noise. He decides to stop off at the local garage. The polar bear mechanic lifts the bonnet, pokes around, then shakes his head while sucking in air through his teeth. Looking up at the driver he says: "Looks like you've blown a seal, mate." "Nah," says the penguin. "I've been eating ice cream."
