May 12, 1958: A contact sheet from a photo shoot at the Bronx Zoo for which an emperor penguin named Jill was the star, occasioning the addition of two duck-billed platypuses, which called “attention to the many other outstanding specimens” at the zoo. “The emperors are hand-fed — five pounds of mackerel a day,” her keeper, Chappie Solanto, told the Times magazine. “The public thinks they look like old men. And people are surprised at their fatness and that they don’t go into the water like other penguins here.” Photo: Sam Falk/The New York Times
To anyone who says that gay marriage isn’t a slippery slope: Take a look at the future. This is a photo of a woman about to marry a nuclear explosion in a containment suit. They can’t have kids together as the Bible commands, they can’t even kiss because it would melt her head off. That isn’t what God intended, not at all.
And don’t send me letters about “The Nuclear Family” this isn’t what that means.
