Sir Penguin

To be filed under old but still indisputably newsworthy:

From the normally staid BBC comes the incredible news (complete with video clip) of a captive King Penguin (Aptenodytes patagonicus) with the improbable name of Nils Olav who received a Knighthood from the Norwegian King’s Guard during a celebration at the Edinburgh Zoo. Sir Olav has been an honorary member and mascot of the Norwegian King’s Guard since the 1980s.
