He got out of the car and, sure enough, it was leaking oil all over the road.
The penguin drove around the corner to a service station and asked the mechanic to take a look at it.
The mechanic said he had a few others to look at first but if he came back in an hour, he could tell the penguin what was wrong with the car.
The penguin agreed and went for a walk.
He found an ice cream shop and thought a big bowl of ice cream would really hit the spot, since he was a penguin and it was Arizona in the summer after all.
He sat down at the counter and started in on the ice cream.
Of course, he had no hands so it was rather messy.
By the time he was done, he had ice cream all over his flippers and his mouth was a total mess.
He walked back to the service station and said to the mechanic, "Did you find out what is wrong with my car?"
The mechanic replied, "It looks like you've blown a seal."
"No, no", said the penguin, "It's just ice cream! Really! Just ice cream!"
