They are just so cuddly rather than just daft.

(Are you watching Snow Babies?)

I like both. They are adorable!

FivesGoldNorks Wed 19-Dec-12 20:30:27

Why thank you.
Oh, that doesn't work since I name changed

there's no chocolate on a polar bear.

Glad someone else is watching this!
We are sitting here going aahh!!
Beats dd telling me to fuck off.

I might be...

I'm torn between which is the cutest. I think the polar bears just edge it.

DH is trying to make the point that if penguins ever got clever humans would be screwed by their armies.

I'm seeing a marketing opportunity here....

We're going ahh while the 3 DC are rolling and jumping round the floor reenacting the behaviour - DS is giving a Jonny Morris talkover and DD is asking everyone to shut up as she actually wants to listen!

Penguins are the funniest creatures. Utterly adorable, much more so than a baby bear with sore feet!

ROFL Moose grin

Yes, I think your DH might be right.

I'm on my own. I'm strangely nervous tonight. I was on the edge of my seat hoping that that little penguin didn't die....

It needs David Attenborough though. He's amazing.

RedToothbrush Wed 19-Dec-12 20:45:13

Caja, I think you and my DH are really on the same wavelength. He said at the start of the programme that you know a Brit cos they complain whenever a natural history comes on and its not David Attenborough!

Baby polar bears are incredibly cute.

Fully grown ones always disappoint me as they look a bit fierce and grubby against the snow.

Penguins are funny.

Did he listen to Bleak Expectations a week or two ago? I'm sure Gently Benevolent did something very Evil with penguins didn't he?

Loving the programme, animals are cleverer than people think and i think i want a snow monkey ;)

SomeTiggyPudding Wed 19-Dec-12 21:06:38

Penguins are cool!

If all animals were in bands then the penguins would play ROCK, with guitars with flames on!!

Polar bears would play folk music or prog rock, which isn't really rock at all.

pleasestoparguing Wed 19-Dec-12 21:33:40

But polar bears live in your freezer and comment on your food - is that cool or is that just a bit weird ? I don't like chocolate biscuits though.

SomeTiggyPudding Wed 19-Dec-12 21:37:35

They also smugly sit on mints and tease foxes.

pleasestoparguing Wed 19-Dec-12 21:42:07

cool cool polar bears on mints you're so right definitely more cool than those waddle waddle penguins - though i am slightly convinced by the rock star thing- although perhaps polar bears would be more like crooners - Frank Sinatra perhaps - now there's a whole different type of cool.

But the EPF beats Herbert every time. confused

RedToothbrush Wed 19-Dec-12 21:44:46

The Birds Eye Polar Bear is creepy as fuck. He has a sinister voice and he spies on you. I think hes a wolf in bears clothing though.

MamaWomanAha Wed 19-Dec-12 21:45:09

Do you mean cool like the old cresta polar bear?

pleasestoparguing Wed 19-Dec-12 21:58:10

Oh yes cresta polar bear definitely cool - I think generally polar bears are winning on the stakes so far....
