It turns out the story about cameramen for Frozen Planet giving whiskey to penguins to make them "act up" for the camera was a total joke.
We knew something we fishy with the story.
Apparently we didn't realize that TheDailyMash.co.uk was a satirical website, similar to TheOnion.com.
They describe themselves as:
"[…] a satirical website covering national and international news with spoof stories, commentary and opinion. (i.e. it's all made-up and is not intended, in any way whatsoever, to be taken as factual. Hello lawyers.)"
Sorry to Discovery and the entire Frozen Planet crew, next time we find a story we don't believe… we won't.
