Néstor Kirchner and Cristina Fernández fondly refer to themselves as “pingüinos.” The reason, of course, is simple: They hail from the southern part of the country where penguins are pervasive. Before Cristina was elected or even
began her campaign for the presidency, Néstor effectively announced her candidacy by saying, “the next president will be a he-penguin or a she-penguin.”
When I saw this penguin gadget on Darío Gallo's blog, Bloc de Periodista, I couldn't resist the temptation to post it here. It's just too fun. So if you've ever wanted to lead the Kirchners around, and get them to follow you in every direction, just move your mouse around and they'll follow in the cutest possible way. I like to think of the two adults as Néstor and Cristina while the three kids are government officials who follow them around in total lockstep loyalty – wherever he or she goes, they follow, ineluctably. Enjoy.
