Today is the 145th #birthday of great #Austrian poet Hugo von Hofmannsthal (1874-1929). He wrote both brilliant poetry and prose. He was a #monarchist and staunch supporter of the legendary Austro-Hungarian Empire; the outcome of #WWI was a blow to him.

Penguins have a solution for slippery fish.

Spoiler: Its a spike mouth.. like why did you go and lose teeth if you are just going go to do this!? 😒🐧
