Neil Patrick Harris And David Burtka, who?! Elton John and David Furnish, what?! Jesse Tyler Ferguson and that one with the gloriously luscious brows, que?! The true IT gay couple of the celebrity world is living far, far away from Hollywood in a giant freezer at Sea Life Sydney Aquarium.
Sphen and Magic may sound like Las Vegas’ premiere gay magicians, but they’re two dude penguins whose piping hot love has nearly melted the ice at their frozen home in Sydney. Like Roy and Silo from the Central Park Zoo before them, Sphen and Magic have fallen in love and partaken in mating rituals together. If penguins are anything like humans (which they’re not, thank GOD), then their mating rituals probably includes purposefully not answering texts for a while as to not look hard-up and not eating at least 12 hours before ass sex.
Sphen and Magic recently took their love to the next level by getting engaged, and they wouldn’t be a celebrity couple if they didn’t show off their engagement ring (or engagement stone, in this case) for the cameras.
And The Daily Telegraph says that “Sphengic” (which is a couple name that they don’t deserve since it sounds like some kind of throat disease) has begun nesting. As breeding season got close, the Gentoo penguins began building a nest using ice pebbles and gathered more than any other penguin couple at the aquarium. The penguin handlers at the aquarium didn’t want Sphen and Magic to miss out on the nesting fun so they gave them a fake egg to take care of. Since Sphen is older, he’s apparently a master at incubating. Magic is still learning.
They did so well with the fake egg that they were given a real egg, which came from another couple who made two. Sphen and Magic now take turns sitting on the egg and guarding it from thieves and predators.
It’s always nice to see a healthy gay couple to look up to, and I also can’t wait to see the Architectural Digest home tour of their nest. And if some kind of ESCANDALO hits the tabloids about Sphen or Magic getting caught fucking some twink penguin they met on Grindr, don’t let me know. Just let me live in the ignorant bliss of Sphengic’s everlasting love!
