Japanese Penguins May Be Too Fat

This is the "Walking of the Penguins," or WoP. It takes place at Asahiyama Zoo in Asahikawa, Hokkaido. The cute li'l Batman villains are walked twice a day for a distance of 500 meters to help them exercise. I can't personally explain why they chose not to got with my suggestion of teaching them Taekwondo - it is a phenomenal workout.
Starting next March, they will be walked only once a day, because the snow will probably be gone, and that somehow means they won't be so plump and out of shape.

    Best pet walking gig ever!
    I love how the zoo keepers (I assume?) have the look of "tsk, half-ta walk the penguins again" expression.
    I thought they were suppose to be fat? Either way, they are freakin adorable.
