Lawmakers weren’t the only ones doing business on the Kentucky Senate floor on Tuesday.
State Senate President Pro Tem Katie Stine (R-Southgate) had brought an African blackfooted penguin named Paula as a part of her presentation for a resolution honoring the Newport Aquarium.
“Are we talking about the penguin that just defecated on the floor?” state Senate President David Williams (R-Burkesville) asked.
“Actually, senator, I believe that’s your desk,” Stine replied.
“Well, let’s see if Miss Kentucky can top that!” Williams quipped, in reference to an upcoming appearance by pageant winner Ann-Blair Thornton.
