less deserving than Nils, who seems to have earned his by his nationality and loyalty to his countrymen.
I was always intrigued by Dr Doolittle when I was a kid. It was such a great idea that some humans could talk to animals. I wonder what animals really think of that. With the sad story of Colin the baby whale reaching its inevitable conclusion in Sydney Harbour, despite the best efforts of animal lovers to work out the formula for whale milk and plans to mix it up in a fuel supply teat, it is encouraging to see a more uplifting animal story getting some coverage. It would make me proud to be a penguin. Arise Sir Nils. Now flap your wings, go for a swim, eat some fish like a good boy.
On the other hand, I am sorry my name is associated with such a sad event. I'll get over it I think. What is it with humans and animals?
