P-p-p-pick up a Penguin
The World Wide Fund for Nature, WWF, produced this postcard to support conservation. It looks as though it may be a child's drawing but I don't know. There is no information on the reverse. It came to me from Finland.
The P-p-p-pick up a Penguin title probably gives away my age. It refers to an old (60s? 70s?) ad for chocolate biscuits called Penguins and has now been absorbed into general use in the UK. The P-p-p prefix appears frequently in other ways. The most recent example was probably the headline, "Keepers p-p-p-pick up a penguin as the birds move to new home", which was written when Edinburgh Zoo moved its penguins to a new enclosure.
