It started with a refrigerator sketch by a young autistic artist, became official policy of Antarctica, and now has made its way to Zazzle! The No kicking penguins story is a great example of the amazing and sometimes strange power of the internets.
Colby Chipman is the name of the second grader who invented the “No Kicking Penguins” meme. The slogan and sketch came to light when Colby witnessed his mother kick a toy penguin in their house and wanted to do something to protect penguins, toy and real alike. I present exhibit A, the new slogan Colby designed for penguins everywhere to champion.
The family loved the design so much that they posted it online where it was found and loved by all interneters. The best part is that the image was discovered by an Antarctica Researcher and posted as policy of Antarctica. Exhibit B, the Antarctic image, below.
