Knock that penguin out the park, kids.
Horribly addictive. Can anybody beat 321.1?

This has become the biggest productivity virus I've seen in a long while. EVERYONE is playing this game right now. I see it being mentioned on every single discussion board/web page/newsgroup I've come across. I believe the maximum distance you can hit the penguin is 323.5.

577.6 you really want to hit that sucker like a hovering line drive and hope he skids on his belly.

Darn... can't break the magic 550! I especially like the nearly 500 ft/m(?) pop ups that embed the penguin beak first in the snow.

My record is 593.5, which I suspect is the maximum from what I've seen on every single other internet message board. This damn penguin is going to get more people fired than naked Anna Kournikova pictures.

588.3 these days. This IS wildfiring the 'net, isn't it?

In a few dozen tries I had mostly 0s and never broke 485. I also have terrible hand-eye coordination and a thumb in a splint so probably can't expect much better. Honestly I doubt the splint is much of a factor.

Got a 593.5 too, which seems to be the highest... And yeah, EVERYONE is linking this.

in all fairness to kottke, the penguin in the modified link flies farther than the original ones.

A little followup on the Reinhold + Yeti graffito on the rock in the game's background.

And holy shit. My very first 593.5. I feel like the first time. I feel like the very first time.
