San Francisco Celebrates Batkid’s Heartwarming Make-a-Wish Batman Adventure [Video]

If you want to kick off your weekend with some nice news that might just make you cry a little bit, you're in luck: Today in San Francisco, the Make-A-Wish foundation is helping a five year-old cancer patient named Miles live out a wish to become Batman. Thanks to the overwhelming support of volunteers, they've been able to send Miles on an adventure of rescuing citizens, battling supervillains and even getting the key to the city in an effort to give him the best day ever.

Even the San Francisco Chronicle has gotten into the act, printing a Gotham City Chronicle special edition that details Batkid's adventures, with stories by Clark Kent, Lois Lane, Brenda Starr and Perry White, apparently on loan to the West Coast from the Daily Planet. Check out the full page below, and get ready to awwww.

Still, you wouldn’t necessarily think any of that trademark penguin loneliness carried over to life at the zoo. Not so. Just look at this video taken at Fota Wildlife Park in Cork, Ireland. While all the other penguins scurry off to greet the approaching food truck, one lone penguin stands alone, gripped by an overwhelming feeling of social isolation. Either that or he just wasn’t hungry.

Jay the Penguin Takes First Steps After Injury [VIDEO]

The good people at New Friends of Bushy Beach (NFOBB) in New Zealand care for and rehabilitate sick and injured penguins. When they took a yellow-eyed penguin named Jay under their wing, his foot was injured so badly they weren’t sure he’d even survive.

We’re happy to report Jay is up and waddling around again. Watch as he takes his first few steps (and try not to squeal too loudly).
