Have you ever thought: I have so many problems and nobody even cares? Well, penguins have problems too Discover them in this hilarious collaboration from Jory John (All my friends are dead. and Quit Calling Me a Monster ) and Lane Smith (The Stinky Cheese Man and Other Fairly Stupid Tales)

Yes, it seems there is no escaping the drudgery of your daily grind, whatever it might be. Or perhaps we've just learned that grumps are everywhere. . . .
