And Now for Something Completely Different...

I see that Blogger has finally added picture uploading capability. This calls for a parade!

  • Pingu!

  • I would consider myself a pingu fan, but some people take it a whole other level.

    This site (which I think is the one I stole the pic from) is definitely the best of the bunch though.

    You have to love the intro: "My wife and I are crazy about Pingu. Since we knew Pingu, our pingu goods collections are increasing more and more. We are surrounded by Pingu, and the goods always. Now Pingu is a part of our life. We introduce our Pingu and his friends in this site"

  • I own a Pingu t-shirt. Pingu is in the middle, facing straight ahead, and is flanked by his sister Pinga and Robbie the seal. I only know their names because I looked it up a long time ago - I swear!

    I actually receive frequent (positive) comments when I wear the shirt around downtown. I've also seen crowds of Japanese tourists pointing at me - while I can't guarantee it is because of the shirt, I believe Pingu is in fact well-known over there.

  • Judging by the fan sites, I'd say Pingu definitely has some core supprt in Asia, with a strong outpost in Europe - never caught on quite as much in North America for some reason...
