a superlative that brings to mind the knighted penguins of other nations’ militaries.

And what nations would those be? Inquiring minds want to know!


Alas, as exciting as an unknown tradition of penguin knights would be, that was just a typo meant to refer to other knighted animals. It has been corrected, and thanks for the heads up!

The video of this ceremony is incredible. Such a noble penguin.
