3. Obviously, this man never spent time on a farm.

Pretty typical bird behavior for some species during breeding season. I keep ducks. Drakes go insane with hormones during breeding season, and will mount anything that moves and some things that don't. They basically spend 24/7 for a period of a couple of months in the spring chasing around looking for sex, with a few short moments in between to eat, drink, and bathe. They are definitely a "if you can't be with the one you love, love the one you're with" kind of bird.

I don't see anything very shocking about the fact that penguins behave the same way.
