Default Random Penguin

Thought I'd just share a bit of fun/foolery. If this isn't the right place, kindly guide me to the proper forum.

I don't know if you're aware of the Penguin/Random House merger. If you are, I don't know if you're aware of the hubbub about the very boring name they chose for their combined company ... Penguin/Random House.

Well, there's a hilarious site protesting that new name and demanding it be changed to Random Penguin: http://random-penguin.com.

I made a submission on behalf of the whole world of Pern, but, alas, it has not yet been approved by the admin. So I thought I'd share it here too! Hope you guys enjoy this bit of Pernese/Penguin humor

Maybe some of you can create more penguin-laden McCaffrey book covers? I dare you to.

This is fantastic and I thoroughly agree it should be Random Penguin! I don't know how to add in pictures but I look forward to the exploits of others!

I used Photoshop and picked the easiest cover to stick a penguin on. I would have loved to replace Lessa on Dragonflight or F'lar on Dragonquest, but I was not up to that level of Photoshopping

Now that I think of it, maybe I should do Dragonsdawn next. I was so geekily, nerdily thrilled when I found a penguin in the exact same pose as Ruth on this cover!!

Had to upload the image to my own site and embed the url in my post here for it to show up. Hope that helps!

Oh yes! That is great fun. We could make a new game:
"Find the Random Penguin"

You've obviously got the time to make it, Xenolith.
Go for it!!!!
