Last Friday, National Geographic graced Twitter with a brutally hilarious video excerpt from the Animal Night Fight series that involved an emotionally-charged penguin love triangle.
The footage captures a ‘husband’ penguin as he comes home to catch his ‘wife’ in the act with another male specimen. Things escalate quickly when, overwhelmed with feelings of jealousy, the rightful husband confronts the homewrecking penguin in a duel for the heart of the cheating wife.

“This event was off the charts”
Gary Vaynerchuk was so impressed with TNW Conference 2016 he paused mid-talk to applaud us.
Unfortunately for the husband, good guys don’t always win and the wife chose to continue her life with the homewrecker instead. But while this was a heart-wrecking moment for the husband, it ensued a barrage of ludicrous goofs and gaffes in the Twitterverse.
Here are some of the best reactions we could find:
Good morning to everyone except that Home wrecking penguin
