Sweet and Silly

My friend Stephen called our attention at work today to this heartwarming story of an 109 year old gentleman who has a rather strange hobby.  He knits little sweaters for penguins! Yes you read that right …. he knits sweaters for penguins. The rather touching tale can be read here: 109-Year-Old Man Makes Little Sweaters For Australia’s Little Penguins.

Being ever observant my friend Lara noticed something about one of the sweaters – I have to admit I missed it.  Take a look at the picture!

Does anyone else catch what our Lara noticed right off the bat?  If so drop me a comment.

Post Scriptum:  And indeed Debra (She Who Seeks) is right on – the little guy second from the left is wearing a very smart Penguin book cover sweater – a penguin in a Penguin!

  1. My guess would be the book publisher's “Penguin” logo — so it's a penguin on a penguin. Actually, every one of those sweaters is darn cute. Including the rainbow Pride one!

  2. I thought you meant the LGBT one. But yes, my favourite is the penguin in a Penguin. Actually it's more than just fluff – it's an artwork. Who doesn't love penguins? All those flompings on Youtube. I suppose some people must find them scary, like clowns.

  3. PS – only just noticed the coincidence with the Christian Dior 'New Look' reference which happened to pop up at the bottom.

    You could say '109 year old man unveils New Look for penguins, helping them regain their position at the centre of the avian world'.

    The dears, indeed.

  4. Okay now for some reason none of the comments showed up on my e-mail or comment thingy on the dashboard. So I am now officially acknowledging you all!
