Weekend Caption Contest™

It's Friday, which means it's time for the Wizbang Weekend Caption Contest™. Enter your best caption for the following picture:

A half dozen Magellanic penguin chicks waddle through the San Francisco Zoo while making their way to Penguin Island where they joined 40 adult penguins in San Francisco, Friday, Aug. 23, 2002. An outbreak of chlamydia at the San Francisco Zoo has left a dozen penguins dead, according to a spokesman. The bacteria, which was most likely transmitted to the birds by an infected seagull, is spread through airborne saliva or other bodily fluids, said Bob Jenkins, the zoo's director of animal care and conservation. A similar disease is sexually transmitted in humans. (AP Photo/Eric Risberg, File)

Winners will be announced Sunday.

Maybe Patagonia has 'em. I heard they take haddock for payment if we can deliver it fresh."
