Over a barrel

After finding this crazy ornament at a Cracker Barrel store, I now go out of my way to look for penguin Christmas ornaments there. It was the first time I had ever been to a Cracker Barrel, after the Florida-Georgia football game with my sister Gale. I have to admit I liked the place and the food. I've found a few other good ornaments over the years at different stores, but none quite like this first one with a rubbery skating penguin sprawled across a frost-covered silver ball and tangled in a string of lights.

Acquired: October 30, 1999, Cracker Barrel, Jacksonville, Fla.
Number: 0152
Size: 4 inches tall
