Where Do Dead Penguins Go?

Did you ever wonder 
why there are no dead penguins
On the ice in  Antarctica ? 
- Where do they go ?
                                   
Wonder no more ! ! !

It is a known fact that the penguin is a very ritualistic bird which lives an extremely ordered and complex life.

 The penguin is very committed to its family. It mates for life, and maintains a form of compassionate contact with its offspring throughout its life.

If a penguin is found dead on the ice surface, other members of the family and social circle have been known to dig holes in  the ice, using their vestigial wings and beaks, until the hole is deep enough for the dead bird to be rolled into and buried. The male penguins then gather in a circle around the fresh grave and sing:

 "Freeze a jolly good fellow"
 
  "Freeze a jolly good fellow.
"

 "Then they kick him 
  in the ice hole."
