When it comes to amusing birds, penguins come out on top. We’ve got the penguin jokes to prove it! First, though, let’s celebrate with a few fun facts about our Arctic friends. Penguins always look formal because of their black and white coloring, similar to a tuxedo. Second, penguins are birds that can’t fly (so perplexing). Third, instead of flying, they get around by waddling or slipping around on their bellies. And while penguins are good swimmers — and spend most of their time in the water looking for food — they aren’t able to swim backward. They are, however, excellent at diving, jumping, spinning, and playing in the water with their penguin colleagues. Did we mention they can hold their breath for up to six minutes?!

Not only are penguins silly and slippery, but they are also the subject of jokes and puns that will make you laugh-out-loud. Here are some supercool penguin jokes to keep you amused all winter long.
