Your friend is probably referring to Hesperornis or Baptornis which are in
fact close in outline to pinguins with their feet at the back of their
bodies and the toothed beak. Cool animals though...

But your friend is not kidding in the sense that such an animal lived, but
it is in no way related to pinguins.
