Giant penguin holds up train

A train driver caused delays on a German rail line after mistaking a giant toy penguin for a dead man in a tuxedo.

Passengers were left stranded in Neuwied after Udo Vergens pulled the emergency stop when he saw what he thought was a man lying face down and wearing a black and white tuxedo.

Officials who came to investigate found only a man-size soft toy penguin lying on the tracks.

A Neuwied police spokesman said: ‘We are at a loss to explain the presence of this very large penguin. We would think you would notice if you lost something like this.’

I love how the writer blames the delay on the driver and not the fact that there was a life-sized STUFFED PENGUIN on the tracks. I would have stopped too, but for different reasons of course.

Where can I get one of those??
