Mix ’n’ match

Some of the penguin ornament manufacturers have figured it out. You can sell me the same ornament twice if you mix things up a little bit on the colors. I like to see a little more variety when I get a set of ornaments, but that doesn’t stop me from buying repainted repeats. I mean, how could I pick one over the other from this pair?
