I suppose I should let our friend William Levy over at Lowercase L know about this one. His blog chronicles the strange practice of sign makers who write in all capital letters except for the letter L. I mean, the penguin’s feet sort of stick out to imply the bottom part of a capital L, but not very far. Maybe bigger feet or skis would have helped. Lowercase l or not, using a critter instead of the letter makes a nice Christmas ornament and I’m glad the critter happens to be a penguin.
