Arise, Sir Pingwing

The BBC win the day with this video of a penguin being knighted. I love how, but for being a penguin, it could be Prince Phillip.

I have to p-p-pick them up on one little thing, though:

A penguin who was previously made a Colonel-in-Chief of the Norwegian Army has been knighted at Edinburgh Zoo.

Penguin Nils Olav has been an honorary member and mascot of the Norwegian King’s Guard since the 1972.

Over the years, he has been promoted through the ranks after being adopted by Royal Guard who visited the zoo.

then, at the end:

However, the penguin honoured on Friday is unfortunately not the original Nils Olav.

He died in the 1980s and was replaced by a two-year-old penguin at the Zoo.

Right.
