Bubes Says - Happy Birthday Harry Potter

Hello again, it's me Bubes once more. Wow I have had such a busy day today. I was in the recording studio this morning, and I spent all afternoon dressed in a Gryffindor uniform as my favorite wizard. I am a huge Harry Potter fan and I really enjoyed cosplaying and celebrating his 33rd birthday.

Donovan McNabb announces retirement

by +Titan Young

Hi readers, my name is Titan Young, and I am writing a guest sports post here on Slap the Penguin. This is like an audition for me so please comment and let the bosses know what you think. Thanks.

Ex-Minnesota Viking quarterback, Donovan McNabb, has announced that he is retiring from professional football this season, and he will be doing it as a Philadelphia Eagle, which is how he started his NFL career. He led the Eagles to a handful of NFC championship games and a Superbowl (2004) during his time with them.

Dear Tina - I yodel when I climax

by +Tina Cruris

Dear Tina, there is no other way of putting this, but when I reach climax I begin to yodel and continue to do so until fully satisfied.  This has not really been a big issue until recently when my 6 year old daughter overheard me and came into the bedroom to find out what I was singing about.

My husband of 8 years has learned to live with it, even though he says it's cute. It was also a reason why I was so 'popular' during my college years. Now, however, it is an embarrassment because I didn't realize how loud the yodeling actually was.

I have tried to bite down on a pillow and my husband has tried covering my mouth but the sound still gets out. I don't want to have to curb my sex life so what do you suggest I can do to enjoy sex without disturbing my children or causing embarrassment.

Sincerely,  Auntie Climax

Hybrid Animal Species

by +Ian C

I was embroiled in a discussion just a few days ago regarding the amazing creature known as a mule. The mule was not one of the creatures found on Noah's Ark, it's existence is entirely due to male donkeys getting it on with female horses resulting in a cross species pregnancy and birth.

Slap the Penguin: What got slapped 12 months ago - July 2012. by +Tina Cruris

This is yet another reslap, a look back at what was happening on our pages this time last year. It's fun to look back at Slap the Penguin 12 months ago and see how much better the writing was.

I hope you have fun trawling the archives. We are fast approaching our 3rd anniversary and have recently passed the 500 post mark so there is a lot of old stuff to wade through. I know you will find it worthwhile if you give it a chance.

Happy Republic Day to The Philippines

by +Tina Cruris

Today is July 4th and I want to wish all of our readers in the Philippines a Happy Republic Day. Republic Day celebrates the recognition of independence of the Philippines by the United States in 1946. This is a celebration which is often overlooked because it happens on the same date as American Independence Day which is obviously far more important than anybody else's day.
