Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the House and who’s current hobbies include pretending to still be involved in presidential candidate races was in St. Louis last weekend and, as reported on Twitter yesterday via several animal-based puns, was nipped by a penguin while visiting the St. Louis Zoo.
During his visit to the popular zoo in Forest Park, he was treated to a behind-the-scenes visit with two Magellanic penguins. One of them nipped Gingrich on the finger.
Zoo spokeswoman Susan Gallagher says a small bandage was all the medical care required.
“Well that’s the last time you’re going to stick your finger in there!” is probably what the zookeeper said and also what Gingrich’s ex-wife told him right before he decided to dump her because she wasn’t pretty and had cancer. “Vagina cancer probably!” is what Newt most likely said to someone during a high-five.
