I'm ashamed to admit it, but this was actually part of the criterion for
the design of the penguin. And I quote from my original message that
called for the penguin to be done:
Give people the outline, and they should say [ sickly sweet
voice, babytalk almost ] "Ooh, what a cuddly penguin, I bet he
is just _stuffed_ with herring", and small children will jump up
and down and scream "mommy mommy, can I have one too?".
I have no morals.
