An odd tidbit of information: in Mandarin Chinese, the word for penguin literally means “business goose“.
I wouldn’t have thought of it myself, but it makes sense. The bird does look like she’s wearing a business suit.
You're learning Chinese, Shu? It could be handy if they take over before we all revert to the early eocene era.
Our 5-year-old granddaughter is learning it in her school.
I love the term. It reminds me of how German comes up with descriptive terms, like "ohrwurm."
