snipshot_bxhr5nhh89i.jpgIf Pete Doherty had his way, Happy Feet would have been a much different movie. The musician and boyfriend of supermodel Kate Moss, decided in his infinite wisdom to throw a wasted joint into a penguin pen at the Cotswold Wildlife Park in Burford, Oxfordshire. His equally unfazed companion, Kate Moss, simply giggled as he waved the joint around in front of the penguins (who obviously thought it was food) and then tossed it. One of the penguins scarfed it down. From the article,

“Said a witness, ‘Everyone knew he was smoking grass — he was joking about getting the penguins stoned. He threw them his joint and it looked like one gulped it down. It seemed very wobbly.’ Andrew Routh, London Zoo’s chief veterinary officer, said: ‘Feeding a penguin cannabis could be fatal. It contains toxins that attack the nervous system and liver.’”

Idiots. Hit the site for pictures of Pete going nuts.

    Idiots indeed.

    This, combined with Kate’s fur wearing, their drug use, Pete’s burgling his bandmate’s flat, assuaulting of other musicians and film-makers and other antics should officially make them the most self-centered contemporary celebrity couple.
