Who can resist those snappy little personality quizzes? Somehow it feels as though some great mystery about ourselves will be revealed, though it never is.
Still, you might have been spending a lot of time wondering whether you’re an Adelie sort of penguin or a Chinstrap. The people at Pew Charitable Trusts’ environmental group seemingly have been aware of how many sleepless nights you’ve had pondering this very issue, so they came up with a Penguin Personality Quiz.
The official reason is that Thursday is World Penguin Day -- because of course every month, every week, every day, is named for something, and I’m not just talking about the sun, the moon and Norse gods.
I’m not sure how we got into all this cute naming of days in honor of one concept or another, but in any case, penguins are apparently so cute that they take up two days every year -- there’s also a Penguin Awareness Day in January -- leaving very little room for all the other species whose habitats are shrinking.
