the wrong side of the bed

i don't know why this story about the crash involving animals traveling from indiana to galveston, texas upsets me so much. i think it is because every account i've read barely mentions the octopus, except to reassure us that he/she is okay.

That IS really upsetting. Can you imagine accidentally hitting a penguin with your car? I would be traumatized for life. Also, I've totally been to the Tyler Zoo.

I mostly hate the fact that the journalist makes three or four puns in the title and first sentence as if the whole thing is funny:

Penguins dive into trouble on their southward journey 4 die after truck overturns, but rest were unflappable

A refrigerated truck full of penguins bound from the Indianapolis Zoo to Galveston overturned on U.S. 59 in East Texas early Tuesday, sending highway patrol and animal control officers scurrying to save the flightless birds.
