General Cool Things About You: I am a member of a clown troupe. If you’re lucky I might introduce you to Baxter one day.

A penguin gets off the elevator right now wearing a sombrero. What does he say and why is he here?: Peter the Penguin removes the sombrero off his head and clutches it anxiously. “Yeah…hi. Umm…I was wondering if I might…and I completely understand if this too large of a request….but…would it be possible to get a slightly bigger sombrero? Don’t get me wrong…I appreciate the fact that I have one. I mean how many penguins can say they have a sombrero of their very own? But I would really like one big enough to store my spare change, fish, and lottery tickets in. Would that be possible? Peter smiles and shuffles awkwardly.
