Penguin Skyscraper?!

The Penguin Post has learned that a zoo in London has set some heads spinning and mouths grinning with its proposal to transform the city’s landmark Gherkin skyscraper into a giant penguin.

Now that’s one big penguin

The ZSL London Zoo even released an image showing what the building should look like. It’s Happy Feet, on a whole new – and gigantic – scale, minus the smile! A press release that accompanies the photos explains: “[ZSL London Zoo plan] to approach city bigwigs with the bold concept of turning the prominent Swiss Re Building – more commonly known as The Gherkin – into a giant penguin.” Whether the owners of the building will agree to the stunt is another story.
