Mr. Penguin

Some people dream of fame and stardom. Others dream of finding true love and starting a family.

Not this guy.

This 79 year-old belgian man dreams of one thing and one thing only: being buried in antartica wearing his favourite penguin suit in a penguin shaped and decorated coffin.

Then again, who doesn’t? right?

“My ultimate dream is to be buried in a deep ocean close to where penguins live,” David says.

According to Reuters:

“David’s life changed in May 1968 when his hip was injured in a car accident. His resulting limp was characterized by his colleagues as a waddle, and they dubbed him Mr Penguin.

As a consequence he embraced an interest in the flightless sea bird and began collecting everything he could find that had a link with the animal.

As his obsession grew, he eventually set up a museum in his home displayed some 3,500 items of penguin memorabilia.

His wife showed him and his collection the door when he told her he wanted to officially change his name to Mr Penguin”.

What is it with these people wanting to change their name?

Although I have to admit, Mr. Penguin does sound much cooler than Metta World Peace.
