March Of The Penguins Foiled By Dastardly Rope (VIDEO)

In life, there are obstacles we must work hard to overcome. Granted, in some situations, those of us with knees have a clear advantage over those who don't.

For these penguins on a Macquarie Island beach, the greatest challenge of the day was getting over a rope tied to a boat. In the video above, they pause for moments to gauge the situation. In a burst of motivation, they seem to decide, "Yes, we can!"

Unfortunately, anatomy wins this round because the penguins' little legs can't quite make the leap. Perhaps if they had knees things would have gone a bit different. Or, you know, perhaps if there wasn't a rope in the middle of Mother Nature...
