I don't measure up to the "pros" that are here in Cyburbia.
Tried - just high flying nose drives, no nice long skip and slides.

Yes, I hit that penguin 314.5 ft! Now only I could put people I wo.....

The key is to get the penguin to bounce off the ground, hit him too high and he nose dives into the snow;)

10 tries and finally whacked that pengiun 321.5 (is it virtual feet or meters). Yeah I whacked it good and I'm gonna keep on whacking it until I beat JNL's penguin whacking record. ;-)


Penguin whacking.... Now that's a sick Cyburbia metaphor if there ever was one.

I found a site with a seal clubbing game, but I don't think it is work safe. So I won't post the link.

No, not really because they are either
stunt penguins or
^o) a symbolic metaphor for certain developers and/or variance applicants ^o)

OT - As inspire by old posting theme of what a posting # symbolized
"618" was the unit/radio # for the ladder truck of the fire dept I was on.

My high is only 315 plus change. But it is fun! Too bad you can't name the penguins!

Reread my posting - just use your latest "favorite" developer and/or variance applicant.

Planner Groupie used ex-husband.

My guess is that anyone who's that talented of a whacker must either be a bored government worker or a lonely New Zealand sheep farmer.

321.1 (Arrrgh!) In a related contest, how about shortest nonzero penguin bash--I claim 69.1.

I think I've done worse (better?) than that, you just smack the thing straight down into the snow...

And in unrelated news, Penguin wacking game hoax. More at 11.

I think the farthest you can whack them is 323.5, unless someone can prove me wrong (sheep herders need not apply).

On the least distance amount, I banked a -9.027 (negative);)

And just how long did it take you to determine this? ;)

I think you're right, and I reckon the 334.5 is a crock...

Oh, at about 9 AM EST this morning. I was just trying to beat it dammit, because I had some hope left;) Still, I like whacking that unfortunate penguin.

-For some reason the quote button isn't working :-\

Feh. 311.1. I had one that was 199.9, though, with a head first landing.

OMG this is great. Addicted! I actually like seeing the penguin nose-dive. I have 207.1 on nose-dive. 321.1 for distance. I bow to the 323.5 clube. Must have trued 100 times now and can't get that far.
