  Talented Penguin

A penguin walks into a bar and asks for a sandwich and a pint. The bartender is astounded by this talking bird, and starts asking him questions. The penguin goes on to explain that he is working at the building site across the road.

Weeks go by and the penguin becomes a regular lunchtime fixture at the bar.

One day, a circus comes to town and the ringmaster walks into the pub. He starts chatting with the barman and learns of the talking penguin that frequents his establishment.

Amazed at this -- and somewhat skeptical -- the ringmaster retorts that if this were true, then he would draw in the crowds with an act such as a talking Antarctic bird. The barman says that the penguin should be in soon, as it was nearly lunchtime. So the King of the Ring sits in the corner and waits.

Sure enough, in walks the penguin and orders his pint of Guinness and his tuna sandwich. The ringmaster walks over to the amazing bird to introduce himself.

"Hello there," says the ringmaster, "I run the circus that's in town and I am always on the lookout for new talent. Can I offer you a job?"

"Is it that big tent in the park?" asks the penguin.

"Yes," replies the ringmaster.

"The big round tent with the pole sticking out at the top, and the flaps and ropes?"

"Yes, yes, my feathered friend."

"Don't be stupid," says the penguin. "I'm a plasterer!" and walks back to the building site.

ou must be referring to Opus, the penguin, in a strip by Berke Brethed. Years ago he had a great strip called Bloom County. He stopped drawing for awhile and now i know he's doing a modified version of it with Opus.
I got to meet him years ago and he signed one of my drawings.

I may have. I'm not sure. I have seen a TV documentary on Emperor penguins living at the south pole, but the penguins weren't speaking french, so maybe It was a different one.
