If you've ever been embarrassed by your lack of grace on the ice, or worried that everyone is laughing at you as you fall on your butt for the 10th time, maybe watching some penguins will help.
But not because penguins will help you learn how to stay on your feet.
It turns out, even year-round ice-dwellers struggle with the slippery surface and have their fair share of pratfalls. So it's not just you — ice makes everyone look like a fool.
Here are eight times ice has gotten the best of even the most experienced skaters.
1. This ice hole ain't big enough for the both of us.
2. Ohhhhh ... well.
3.Even on ice, penguins need to watch out for wet spots.
4. Just pretend it never happened.
5. Sigh ... not again.
6. Grin and bear it.
7. Penguins know the No. 1 rule of icy accidents: Use anything to break your fall — even your beak!
8. Ignore the stares. IGNORE THEM.
