San Francisco’s Bisexual Penguin Harry Near Death?

harrypenguin

Harry, the bisexual penguin at the San Francisco Zoo who this summer ditched his male mate of six years, Pepper, to take up with lady friend Linda, has fallen seriously ill. He’s being treated for “a life-threatening respiratory infection” called aspergillosis, which after zoo keepers diagnosed after noticing Harry (pictured, front) coughing and a waning appetite. Linda remains by his side.

      San Francisco has seen enough LGBT deaths, human or penguin. All the best to you Harry. Much love.

      Being from San Francisco, I will have Harry in my thoughts despite breaking the heart of Pepper.

      Karma’s a bitch, Harry.

      He left a good home and partner for the vagina and now he’s on his death bed. May this serve as a lesson to the Ted Heggard and Larry Craig’s of the world, and their penguin counterparts.

      I’m just kidding. I hope he recovers.

      I don’t want to start any rumors, but this may be the second known male partner that Linda will have “survived” … I’m just saying …
      I just hope that Harry and Pepper have settled their differences. The buzz at a recent SF Blacktie New Year’s Eve soirree was that Pepper was spotted fin and fin with a dashing younger gayguin.

      I wonder if Pepper will be allowed in the vet clinic to visit – or will Linda’s family bar him from the clinic?

      Godspeed to you Harry. Don’t eat anything that Linda tries to feed you, buddy. I know this from experience!

      Serves the man-bitch right for dumping Pepper after six years for some hot clambake. I hope Pepper’s new beau is younger and hotter than you Harry, and you get to see Pepper very happy with him before you croak and realize what you’ve missed out on!

      The comments were not bi-phobic, they were abandonment-phobic.
