The National Aquarium of New Zealand erected a sign last year to shame their Naughty Penguin of the Month, complete with the reason for the award. In contrast, they also named a Good Penguin of the Month. It was a cute way to remind visitors that penguins are not all alike; in fact they all have their own distinct personalities. The Aquarium has kept up the idea, and posted a new Naughty Penguin and a new Good Penguin each month. Regular visitors got to know the best -and worst- penguins. Now @jonnywaistcoat has curated and posted evidence of each Penguin of the Month over the past year with commentary so that internet users all over the world can get to know the individual penguins, too!
It’s good to know that Timmy, the original naughty penguin, actually made the good list once, but then fell back into his old ways. But we learn that Timmy is also a victim of bullying. Mo made the naughty list so many times, they turned to shortcuts to describe his behavior, as you can see in the picture above. And the new guy, Burny, is turning out the be a real sweetheart.
