South China Sea extended to include Antarctic penguins

After China constructed a military airbase in Antarctica under the watchful eyes of a colony of chinstrap penguins, the Foreign Minister rejected suggestions China was militarizing the icy continent: 'China has always owned Antarctica. We have a map from 1947 with 90 dashes on it, the dashes go all the way round. And as early as the 13th century we were sending researchers there in ocean-going junks to investigate the climate'.
