I asked myself that and found out that they in fact do skate. Well - they do in Chicago and they do when Gemini Studio paints them. This limited edition, Penguin Skate Company is so funny and whimsical and a bit subliminal that it just begs to be purchased. And for $78 is there any reason not too? Oh - and if you like dogs even more then you like penguins...well....you just need to visit this shop. Now.
