One small step for me. One giant leap for you.

^^Penguins are sad. You are happy.^^

It's here. Rejoice.

Twenty years ago, in the early years of this blog, I commemorated the release of my book in a 17,000 word essay. I think it is even more relevant now than it was twenty years ago.

I've never seen such a sad penguin...

Well, I can't help myself. I've noticed that content does indeed trump style. The design of your blog is simple and uncluttered- basic- however, you go about being you, and people love it! (Always the entrepreneur figuring out why something works.) Maybe I can send my friend Budget Girl over for your book signing. She's in Hollywood.

Isn't that Ann Coulter in a fur coat? Poor bitch did she get dumped again?

The inplications of this FUP movement are more important and dynamic than many can comprehend.

Do you realize what you've created here? Yes, yes I think you don't.

Oh, look, what's that? Is that a tear in the fabric of time and spa-aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa

Congratulations! This is such a big day! I pre-ordered my two copies last week. It made me feel almost holy.

Amazing how, even when adjusted for inflation, a picture is still worth one thousand words!
But, what is the story on that sad sack fucked up mess of a penguin anyway?

WR said...

Now that you are making money from your book sales, you might consider calling those cleaning women on the English TV show to help that poor oil soaked bird on your blog. A little palmolive (the soap for oil clean up for birds...truly) and it will be good again and it will have a british accent! Also don't forget to call your mother while you are basking in the glory of success.

ok, admittedly I'm new here, but why exactly are we to celebrate this image? I get the whole "fupenguin" pun, but the suffering of an animal is never funny . . .

Fuck You, Penguin said...

It's not oil, this is a brown penguin, he is just wet.

Thank you, good night.

tabbimama said...

I see. My bad. So, you don't mind if people mistakenly think it's oil (which I assume since you didn't correct anyone earlier), as long as they also think it's funny.

Good night to you as well. Just not my thing, I guess.

Peace,

tm

I don't think that (brown, not oily) penguin is sad. I think he's mad. I think he's going somewhere, and he is real angry. Michael Douglas angry.

I think he's going to get his gun and tell Rick and Sheila he wants BREAKFAST.

Fuck You, Penguin said...

Sigh.

apotheosis said...

So sometimes you'll see someone who just seems a little slow and you're like maybe they're not slow, maybe they just don't get it, right? Sometimes people just don't "get it."

Then they say something else and you start wondering if the difference between people who are "slow" and people who "just don't get it" is really all that significant.

Beckett said...

FU Penguin pun? I don't get it. Where is the pun?

Anyway, this guy is clearly in need of a soup kitchen. Wet penguin's are funny, but poverty is only funny from a distance.

How's that for sensitivity?

@eloh said...

Well, I think there is a little more to the story here.

Body language...see those slumped shoulders...I think the little bastard went out for a swim and a snack and some of the fishes bigger cousins were waiting on him.....

SQUEAL LIKE A PIG you fish eating little fuck.

Wishing 4 One said...

Penguins of the world are pissed the F off right about now. I still wish I could get a copy to Cairo...

WR said...

FU,P

Ya, well okay, it is a wet brown Penguin. I stand corrected - not too old to learn...just almost to old to...

It is pretty pathetic looking. Perhaps when it got to the book store, your new book was sold out...?
