1) needs a mascot
2) would choose said mascot to be a penguin
UnderANeonHalo - 2008-08-16 Are you kidding? The Japanese probably give out medals with 12 year old cyborg girls throwing up the ol' "V for victory" while winking! I bet every unit has their own mascot that's trained to pilot a tiny mech with loud speakers blaring some sort of psychotic techno music created by ferrets on speed.
Compared to Japan this is pretty damn normal.
Syd Midnight - 2008-08-17 You'd think other countries would laugh, but that is seriously awesome.
CornOnTheCabre - 2008-08-15 still not as offensive as knighting Paul McCartney
Syd Midnight - 2008-08-17 :55 "Where you from, son?" "Psst Colonel, keep moving!" +1 star because the medallion he gets looks like a little skull.
They should allow him to lead a mission against some leopard seals or something, so all the other penguins can see.
