Random Penguin?

That there are already images out there for this is awesome. I love the internet.

What kind of penguin throws a shoe, honestly?

Well, crap. I guess we're down to the big five publishers.

Sounds awkward.

I'm not too happy about this but I get why it's being done. Furthernore, I had heard that Rupert Murdoch (Fox) was interested in Penguin. Happy to read he won't be able to get his hands on it now. Actually, I am very happy.

Meh. More of a henchman than a villain.

Still better than Goldmember.

would penguins consider "house penguin" to be racist?

Penguin has given me so many great titles over the years, anything they can do to survive is good by me.

As long, that is, as they remain separate from Harper-Collins.

Hooboy, that's a catch. You couldn't spend an afternoon downloading all of the public domain books that consist of 99% of Penguin's assets and then reprint them.

Damnit subby, not only did I lol, I don't even LIKE Austin powers.

/What is this "buisness" tab thingy anyway?

Rankin' Penguin would be a good ska/two-tone label name.

thomps: would penguins consider "house penguin" to be racist?

Lol. Penguin House is a possibility.

Random Penguin would be more a Batman villain....
