This will get you the weekly newsletter, with links to the current cartoon.
Suppose I am a role model, and I still want a penguin t-shirt, mug, mousepad, tote bag or tatoo?
You're in luck! Unless you want a tatoo. But lots of other penguin stuff is now available here: www.cafeshops.com/pengcognito
To fit on the mugs, the strips have been changed a little or abbreviated. You can see the new versions here.
What are those herrings and half-herrings doing next to the links? They're making me hungry.
Those are ratings. The more herrings, the better (as in life.)
You are now able to add your rating once you've scrolled to the end of an episode; please feel free.
We promise not to mail you guano or leftover herring guts if we don't agree.
Q: C'mon, that's really all the same peguin in different
A: We're a bit insulted you can't
tell us apart.
Q: Isn't it Bad to anthropomorphize animals, especially
wild, endangered ones?
A: It would probably be better to penguify humans, but
it's not nearly as funny. Besides, penguify.com was taken.
Q: Are you ever going to get in, um, compromising situations?
A: You mean, is your Big Brother filter
going to block the site? Not intentionally on our part (this is
as close as it will get.) It has already been blocked by at least one misguided program - for what reason,
we have no idea, unless the filters are mistaking the word "penguin" for
another famous and fun word that starts wth "pen"...
Q: The human world sucks. Can I come live with you guys?
A: You are welcome to stay here as long as you bring a couple of kegs of Herring Lager and cook the breakfast herrings.
Q: No, really, what's all this then?
A:Jen started making these as birthday cards for her sister Tina, who really likes
Then, since humans tend to go out in gangs for birthdays, she started doing
them for other relatives and friends. They are the sort of things that
are fun to pass around at Japanese steak houses while you're waiting for
the chef to throw food on you.
Her husband (Moof) takes the actual penguin photographs, but most of the
rest of it is not his fault. He comes up with the occasional brilliant inspiration, like the WaddleMaster 3000.
Jen can occasionally be found doing incomprehensible human stuff like writing USB device drivers for the Mac,
doing software archaeology, or making database back ends for web sites at House of C,
(a quirky little software company) when she really
ought to be busy documenting the secret life of penguins, which is a lot more interesting.
