That's wrong in so many ways. What did a penguin ever do to a narwhal? Steal it's hemisphere?

It's sillier than that:

Quote
The Avenging Narwhal, with his whale body and unicorn horn, has long struggled with his looks. In school, he was constantly teased by a clique of adorable penguins. He was ostracized for years, but he never stood up for himself. Then, during study hall, he intercepted a note intended for a penguin. At that moment, the Avenging Narwhal's life changed forever: he had uncovered the penguin conspiracy to take over the world. For decades, penguins have employed a propaganda campaign of nature documentaries and animated films. The people of earth became enamored with their clumsy gait; their monogamy; their flightlessness; their darling survival mechanism of huddling their blubber-covered bodies together for warmth. While we were hypnotized by penguin preciousness, we failed to see the reality—that each penguin was a megalomaniacal genius intent on full control of humans.

The Avenging Narwhal has since made it his duty to crush the penguins' evil plot by piercing them in their cute bellies with his magical tusk, thereby reducing the number of waddling, formalwear-clad threats to humanity. So, while your friends and neighbors talk about how cute penguins are and how they look like they're wearing tiny tuxedos, you'll know that the true friend of the world is the homely, but heroic, Avenging Narwhal, who has devoted his life to ending the penguin scourge.


TBH, I think he's got the wrong waddling formalwear-clad threats to humanity.

In St Petersburg. Understand that I can't speak Russian, but I can read Cyrillic now....just about.

Transliterated into English, I read the wording on the sign underneath the pyramid as "Biking Bank"

(ACTUALLY, it reads VIKING Bank, but when I first saw it I made the common error of reading "B" instead of "V" which made me think of you lot...so here it is anyway)
