That's Sir Nils Olav to you!

This story made me smile. A king penguin received Norwegian Knighthood recently, having already received medals for good service and other honorary ranks ever since he was made an honorary member of the King's Guard in 1972 after being picked out as the guard's mascot.

Check out the full story here

And the video (in case you don't believe me):


Here's also a few penguin ATC's I recently made (I thought it would go nicely with this post)...

Thanks Jeff and Lisa... I saw this story when I was checking email (aol news feed). It also had a link to the YouTube video. I thought the story was cute, too. Thanks always for your very kind comments! =)
