It was recently discovered that giant penguins used to exist. We are not kidding.

Three Australian bros decided it was a good idea to get so blackout drunk, they woke up with a penguin that they stole from Sea World in their hotel. So as to prove their outright defiance against rules, their livers, and common sense, they also taped everything. Whether or not they were able to get Mike Tyson to make a cameo has not been reported.
