A truck carrying 24 penguins bound for the city zoo broke down on the highway. The trucker knew it would take some time to repair, so he flagged down a van and offered the driver fifty dollars if he would take the penguins to the zoo. The driver agreed, so all the penguins got out of the truck and piled into the van.
When his truck was finally repaired, the trucker went to the zoo to make sure that the penguins had arrived safely. But when he got to the zoo, the penguins weren’t there. He jumped back into his truck and drove around town, searching for them. He finally spotted the driver and all 24 penguins walking along a busy downtown street.
“You were supposed to take those penguins to the zoo,” said the trucker.
“I did,” said the driver. “But there was still some money left over, so I’m taking them to a movie.”
“Baba Yetu” is The Lord’s Prayer in Swahili, set to music by Christopher Tin. It’s performed here by the choir of Nanyang Technological University in Singapore.
