Meet Mumble – the confused Chinese chicken who thinks he’s a penguin.Instead of scratching in the ground and roosting on a perch at night, Mumble walks around waddling from side to side.Farmer Lu Xi got the bird as a chick, reports CEN. “He only has little wings, just like a penguin, which he sticks out when he walks. I guess that’s why he never flies,” he said.

The man wasn’t chicken but the chicken was

A naked man has thrown himself off the fourth plinth in London’s Trafalgar Square.

The man had earlier thrown down a pair of inflatable… dolls before stripping and hurling himself into the safety net which surrounds the plinth.

He also took a live chicken on to the plinth which had to be rescued by security staff after the man, who called himself Gunter, ran away.

A spokesman for the project said both the chicken the man were unhurt.
