    About 9 on a scale of 1-10. Also, your cursor changes to SAWII. Clever, but useless.

    That is pretty lame... particularly since penguins occupy about, what, three minutes?

    This is Sony... were you expecting anything different?

    Another title trying to capatilize on the success of March of the Penguins (by using similar style fonts) is Penguins Under Seige... but at least it's about Penguins:

    It's borderline deceptive.

    Is it any good? I saw Penguins Under Siege 2: Dark Territory on cable and it sucked.

    Is that the real new WM box? I mentioned that box art a couple months ago as preliminary here when we first bitched about it. I was pretty sure they changed it to only show 50% penguins because even Sony realised they were going a bit far. I have the original WM version so never followed up.

    Forget that... Penquins Alone 2: Lost In New York from what I hear is a definiative classic. [​IMG]

    You Can Fly! You Can Fly! You Can Fly!

    Think of the presents you've brought
    Any merry little thought
    Think of Christmas, think of snow
    Think of sleigh bells Here we go!
    Like a reindeer in the sky
    You can fly! You can fly!
    You can fly! You can fly!

    Soon you'll zoom all around the room
    All it takes is faith and trust
    But the thing that's a positive must
    Is a little bit of pixie dust
    The dust is a positive must
    You can fly! You can fly!
    You can fly! You can fly!

    When there's a smile in your heart
    There's no better time to start
    It's a very simple plan
    You can do what the birdies can
    At least it's worth a try
    You can fly! You can fly!
    You can fly! You can fly!

    MGM did the same type of thing... They released the 1980's film "The Aviator" starring Christopher Reeve to co-incide with The Aviator (the Scorsese film)... the two films are completely unrelated, yet they made the title on the DVD cover the same as Warner's.

    You know, I've been working on new tunes for a cd. I think I'll put a penguin on the cover instead of my mug now.

    I guess we should all be thankful that Warner Brother's recent release of Batman Returns didn't have a group of cuddly cutsie penguins on the cover.

    Disney could have put Wheezy front and center on the cover of its recent re-release of Toy Story 2.

    These are some lost opportunities, folks! [​IMG]
