“The biblical account of Noah’s Ark and the Flood is perhaps the most implausible story for fundamentalists to defend. Where, for example, while loading his ark, did Noah find penguins and polar bears in Palestine?” –Judith Hayes
The Norwegian King’s Guard has a mascot. Sir Nils Olav II. He is also a penguin. It seems that the Guard visited the Edinburgh Zoo and were so captivated by the penguins, they adopted one and named it after then King Nils Olav.
The penguin was recently knighted.
