A penguin

What's the most unusual sighting you've ever made - and then acted upon it? I was with Eamonn Holmes this morning who was telling me about the time he p-p-picked up a penguin one morning at Belfast's George Best airport. He was in a taxi, that pulled up at a zebra crossing just outside the terminal - to let a penguin cross.

Eamonn rubbed his eyes. Too many early mornings? Sleep in his eyes?

No, it really was a penguin.

At Belfast airport.

Yes I know.

The taxi driver paused, and then continued, as if this sort of thing happened every day. But enterprising Eamonn got a few people together and went looking for the penguin, which was meandering around the airport.

Now it's in Belfast city zoo.

And it's called Eamonn!!!

Beat that.
