Do you get penguin gifts due to using Linux?

Just a random question for everyone, since this is something I experience every now and then myself and I'm always grateful;

Does anyone else receive penguin-related gifts every so often, as a result of being a Linux user?

And, if so, have you been given any particularly interesting or unusual penguin items over the years? Or, alternatively, have you picked any up for yourself?

Please share!

I did recently receive a very nice portrait of myself dressed in a penguin suit, doodled on the whiteboard next to my desk at the office. Does that count?

Oh and my wife just made me a little plaster cast figure of a penguin bathing in a coffee mug.

Not really gifts, no. I got a nice penguin plushie and mousepad when I bought a Tuxedo notebook, though!

as a smarter guy likely dont get good friends around myself. Mostly virtual friends (from internet or so around the globe) i don't get gifts i dont bother too. "my pc, my wife, my cat" basic life style.

It's not specifically due to me being a Linux user (I just like penguins), but for Christmas my partner and her siblings got me a adoption pack from an aquarium which lets me feed a (or possibly multiple) penguin(s). We have to wait until bird flu restrictions have been lifted in the surrounding area, for obvious reasons, but it promises to be an interesting experience.

Almost nobody I know cares, understands, or knows that I use Linux. A computer is just a computer to them. So no.

Though, if I had to pick a favorite kernel/OS mascot, MINIX takes the cake. And I do have a Raccoon plushie lying around

I feel like Pengling and Liam have these pajamas:

I've got the dinosaur one myself. 👀
