Suiting up a penguin

Pierre the penguin, kept at the California Academy of Sciences, had been losing his feathers and was reluctant to go in the water. His keepers had a novel idea: fit him with a wetsuit. Even the colors match (at least on the back - he's now the only penguin with a black belly. Maybe he can just say he's wearing a cummerbund with his tuxedo). Things are now going just swimmingly for Pierre. (I'd put in much worse penguin puns if I could think of any.)

Thanks to Kris Winkler for this item.
