The 'No kicking penguins' meme

Monday, January 25, 2010

It was drawn by a Canadian autistic second-grader, it got posted on Reddit, became popular, and ended up in Antarctica, where scientists in a British research facility have posted the image and declared it to be "official policy in Antarctica."
In October, [Michelle Chipman] was walking down the hall when she kicked an inflatable penguin — which had been won at the Regatta — out of her way. Seven-year-old Colby… promptly advised her that kicking penguins was prohibited. He left the room for a minute, returned requesting Scotch Tape and then posted a hand-drawn sign — a woman kicking a penguin, in a circle with a diagonal line through it (as in a No Smoking sign). Written around the image was the decree Colby had issued earlier — “No kicking penguins.”
