Here's some penguins getting into the festive holiday season by sculpting a happy looking ice jack 'o lantern. I have always wondered why they are called jack 'o lanterns. Doesn't that mean "jack of lantern"? Wouldn't it be more appropriate to call them lantern 'o pumpkins? Maybe they're named after the Irish immigrant who first carved a toothy grin on a gourd. Here's to you, Mr. O'Lantern! Your creation will live in infamy!
Speaking of living in infamy, I now will since I can say I've met Mel. I'm not sure why he hasn't put the labels "nerd, weirdo, crazy" under the post of me posing with him. Maybe it's just because he's an incredibly nice and talented guy! Check out his web presences. (Prescenci?)
