You're absolutely right, I totally missed that, thanks for pointing it out. Actually, that makes it all pretty funny to me. Which, for me personally, puts it in the 'pretty funny' category, instead of the 'weird' one. Also: Perhaps the person that dreamed that story up should have used the real names instead of the imaginary penguin pentarou/penko names, for added bonus points.
