History Nerd Chortle

“I have not always in my dealings with General de Gaulle found quotations from Trafalgar and Waterloo necessarily productive, and he has been very tactful about the Battle of Hastings.”
– Harold Wilson

Apparently there is a particular zoo in Germany housing a penguin by the name of Bonaparte.  He has, against all the rules of biology, genetics, and common sense, fallen in love with a black and white Wellington boot.

An event only the truly nerdiest of history nerds can appreciate.

First Battalion, King's Own Penguins advance!
