Penguin Sweaters

If you’re anything like me, you’ve often found yourself asking “What ever happened to iPod Socks?”. Well holy hell, they still sell them1. How is that even possible?

Real iPod Socks
These continue to exist

Whatever the logic or economics behind the continued existence of iPod Socks, penguins in New Zealand are no doubt grateful, as they’ve started wearing them:

The height of antipodean fashion

In actuality, those are custom-made sweaters, knit by hand and used to protect penguins from the effects of an oil spill. It’s so ridiculously cute, you may not be able to stand it. If you’re up for it, you can knit your own.


Footnotes:

  1. I say “still sell” rather than “still make”, because they must still be on their original production run, right? ↩︎
