Well, since the sponsored Tux (dunno what it's called in english) is
near Alan Cox' place, and that Linus visited a zoo in down under that
inspired him and was the reason he choose the penguin as mascot and
is the reason why he took over mmmhhhhship of a penguin in a British
zoo, I wouldn't be surprised if this is a sign from the zoon in .uk
that hosts "his" penguin.
