    They are quite good at getting aloft but flap their wings so fast it always looks like a huge effort. They probably work far better underwater.

    I don't know how they burn, but they taste OK, you can get them in Icelandic supermarkets – meat is dark, fine textured and quite strong tasting, but not really fishy.

    Do not get in their way as they find it difficult to change direction once they get going and you don't want to be run over by a speeding puffin.

    Especially one that's on fire!

    I'd imagine they evolved to fly fast in a straight line to avoid being set alight….

    What if you put a flaming puffin on a conveyor belt?

    then you'd never get the plane to take off, the belt would either be too greasy from puffin oil or too sticky from the melted rubber 🙄

    Why would puffins taste like fish?
    Cows don't taste like grass. 😉

    How about a flaming puffin on a conveyor belt? Would that taste better because of better muscle development eg a fitter puffin, or would the burnt coating from the flames ruin the taste?

    It's got me worried. Hold the puffin order Amazon!

    Indeed.
    No one would believe the airport announcer either – "sorry, all flights cancelled today as there is an excess of puffin oil on the take-off conveyors".

    It is a huge effort, they're huffin and puffin all the way along the runway.

    I'm sitting outside a cafe in town, wiping tears from my eyes from reading this thread, so far nobody's noticed my total loss of composure. Brilliant thread, thank you, chappau!

    just imagine, it's bad enough being hit in the face by a bumblebee, just think what a half-pound of flaming puffin doing thirty knots would be like.

    Perhaps they should build Pelican Crossings on St.Kilda?

    the island was named after a famous explorer called Stan who landed on the island on a night ride and did not have a Bastid light
    so found a puffin and discovered if lit with a match would light his ride . but sadly the puffin died half way round the ride .

    his mate was a rasta and coined the phrase Stan killda puffin in the cafe.

    and the name stuck but was shortened by the cartographers later

    And I thought this thread was a variation on cartwheeling rally cars, burning ostriches and orange penguins with brooms.

    Isn't a smoked Puffin a Shag?
