Wanna know who's the most successful entertainer? Nope. Not Britney, Cher, or Paris. It's those damn cute 'n cuddly penguins! They've had more hit films than Will Smith. "Don't Call It Frisco" reader Vinnie of Valencia sent me this tip about the Bay Area's very own "Happy Feet." Meet San Anselmo's Jim Fox, former IT guy turned Sphenisciformes. Don't call him Jim. Call him"Penguin Man." He's currently the only penguin we know who sings, taps, plays the ukulele, and has his own CD. Maybe you've caught his act in Union Square. Perhaps you know some of his dittys, such as "The Global Warming Blues" (Didn't Melissa Etheridge record that one?) or my favorite, "The Inky, Dinky, Winky Hot Dog Song." Like all major recording artists, you can catch Penguin Man's latest music video here. Why Penguin Man has not been booked into Nickies or the DNA Lounge, we don't know. Probably discrimination. Let Penguin Man's voice be heard! Rise against the machine!
Only in Frisco, kids!
