Submission + - Is Tux moonlighting? Or did he get laid off? (

hsjones writes: "So this evening I'm driving by a convenience store in Gainesville, Florida, when my daughter Guinevere (now 6 yrs. old) suddenly blurts out, "Hey! That store has a Novell penguin!" I figured it was just some picture of a penguin that maybe kinda looked like the Novell Tux that used to sit on my desk. We love penguins (who doesn't?) — especially Linux penguins — so I backed up to investigate. My jaw dropped. It was Tux! Not just sorta-kinda Tux, but the real, official Larry Ewing-drawn Tux, faithfully reproduced — four times! — in roughly 2.5 foot treatments on the walls above the beverage coolers and "Beer Cave"."
