Deadpool - Movie of the decade?

By +Ian C

I have just watched the best movie of the year so far. Yes I know it's only February, but I doubt that anything else released during the remainder of 2016 will be better than Deadpool. If you think that is a bold statement, let me tell you this; Deadpool is the #1 contender for movie of the decade, and I am aware that there are still 3+ years left to go, with yet another Star Wars sequel on the horizon.

Where are they now? The Silence of the Lambs

By +Brad Naylor

Can you remember which movie you saw last week? Well I doubt you can remember what was in theaters 25 years ago. For those of you that read the title of this post, I put a big clue up there, for everyone else, the answer is The Silence of the Lambs.

Today is Sunday 7th

By +Alexa Rankin

While the title may be self explanatory and rather obvious, the meaning behind it is not known to anywhere near enough people yet. A very large percentage of the human race is familiar with the ominous date of Friday 13th. A day where many vow to stay away from black cats and ladders at least until noon when the superstitions can no longer hurt you. My colleague, Tina, came up with a great idea in September 2103 to balance out all that potential bad luck.

What got slapped 12 months ago - February 2015

By +Tina Cruris

I got to sleep in this year and skip the January reslap, so this February addition should be fresh, fun and lively. Read on to find out if that is actually the case. For those who are new to our monthly reslap, it is our chance to showcase the best of what we were doing 12 months ago.

For those who are familiar with "What got slapped" posts, you know that it is nothing more than an exercise in cross linking pages to increase page hits and improve our Google Search scores. Either way you get to see how Slap The Penguin has degraded over the last few years.

Where are they now? Kenny Loggins

By +Brad Naylor

The name Kenny Loggins makes kids of today think about a list of usernames and passwords for people called Kenny, but to the older, more experienced mind, Kenny Loggins could possibly have been the single most important figure in movie soundtracks of the 80s. More so than Prince, Madonna, David Bowie or even Huey Lewis.

Dear Tina - Groundhog Day

By +Tina Cruris
Dear Tina, I am confused about the whole groundhog day thing. What does his shadow have to do with the weather? Can those guys in hats really speak groundhogese? Is Phil really 126 years old? It seems to me that those old farts in the hats are just trying to perpetuate a stupid tourist tradition so that they only have to work for 1 week per year.
Sincerely, Anti-Groundhog Girl

The 6th Annual Slap The Penguin Awards

By +Ian C

Welcome to the 6th Annual Slap The Penguin Awards, affectionately known as The Slappys™. We weren't even sure if this event would go ahead, and even as I am typing this, I am not 100% convinced that it will still happen, so if you aren't reading this then it didn't get published and the world missed out on an awesome online award presentation.

Jada Pinkett Smith launches "The Black Oscars"

By +Alexa Rankin

Hollywood has again been rocked by racism as "The Academy" is called out for not nominating a single black person for an award. An ever growing list of black stars are threatening to boycott this years Academy Awards, leaving host, Chris Rock, as the only black person in the Dolby (née Kodak) Theater. Jada Pinkett Smith was so furious about her husband, Will, being blackballed (metaphorically speaking) that she is having her own 'Black Oscars' instead.

Happy New Year and 2015 Review

By +Ian C

Happy New Year and welcome to 2016. We had a quiet end to 2015 thanks to (other) work commitments for many of our top writers, editors and tech staff. Hopefully now that we are in a brand new year we can get back into the stride and deliver the kind of content that you have been used to seeing from us in the past.

Steve Harvey wishes everyone a Happy 2018
