No Kicking Penguins!

A fairly recent find that I'm just getting around to posting.

There is a young boy named Colby that lives in Newfoundland.

One day his mother while walking around the house kicked a toy penguin out of her way. Colby then drew a picture and posted it on the fridge. The new house rule:



Colby's uncle heard the story and had a graphics artist @ the Telegram clean up the image (Here's the original). It was then posted on Reddit and went viral.

Next thing the family knows, the American military based in Antarctica has made "No Kicking Penguins" official policy.

And you may ask "why not kick penguins?" The answer (and official webpage tagline) is: "Because you just shouldn't. What did they ever do to you?"

Sounds like a pretty good policy to me.

I'm a sucker for the cute & I couldn't resist the shirt. All proceeds to various agencies that assist with autism. (Colby is autistic).

Cool CBC story here...

And the official No Kicking penguins site.
