Felonious Penguin Appreciation Day

For Penguin Appreciation Day yesterday (4/25), the Half Moon Bay company (a UK firm offering themed merchandise: “Home to TV, Film and Popular Culture fans”) exhorted:

The only water bottle you need this #WorldPenguinDay…
Buy yours here: http://aard.mn/feathersbottle

(#1) The Feathers bottle, a metal water bottle modeled on the felonious penguin character Feathers McGraw from the Wallace and Gromit animated movie The Wrong Trousers

(Hat tip to Chris Ambidge on Facebook yesterday.)

Information about this product, on the company’s US site:

Wallace and Gromit Metal Water Bottle – Feathers McGraw $24.99

(with “a novelty silicone red rubber-glove-hat as a lid! … which resembles the same red rubber-glove-hat that McGraw wears in the classic Aardman animation”)

Background on this blog, in my 12/22/18 posting “For the season: from fish to moose, penguin intervention”, in image #2 there:

(#2) “A seasonal warning from the makers of Wallace and Gromit films”

— featuring the felonious Feathers McGraw, from The Wrong Trousers (with a full recounting of the plot).

And on the Half Moon Bay company, from the About Us page for the UK shop:
