Penguins are cute

So all this talk about Norway knighting a penguin got me thinking...

(I'm not actually judging Norway for knighting a penguin, since I firmly believe if the United States could knight people, we would totally be knighting Paris Hilton or Angelina Jolie or something. I'm very cynical about American pop culture.)

Wouldn't a comic about a penguin-knight be awesome? Or at least adorable? It'd be like Shining Knight. Only. You know. A penguin.

I don't even know how it'd use a sword, but it would certainly be cute.

Do Penguins and horses get along?

I think I know what I'll want to commission from convention artists next year. :-)

    We've knighted a penguin?

    That's what I get for not paying attention to the news lately.

    I think the penguin would ride a seal instead of a horse...

    Well, if Caligula could nominate his horse for the Senate, I guess that Norway can knight a penguin. Although I have to say that penguins and Norway are not the two things that I usually think of together.

    How about a polar bear? Polar bears have to live a lot closer to Norway than penguins.

    If we can have the Mouse Guard, then clearly we can have the Penguin Knight.

    I don't know if it's what you're looking for.

    Hey, sallyp, unlike polar bears, we actually have penguins on mainland Norway.

    Why, the aquarium in Bergen is famous for them!

    We're just one step closer to the inevitable showdown between Bear Cavalry vs Penguin Army.
