Sometimes, Dick Skrinjar, Mayor Ravenstahl’s Chief of Making Shit Up, is a pretty cool guy:
Word soon reached the Pittsburgh Mayor Luke Ravenstahl’s office.
After receiving photos of the penguin’s arrest, Ravenstahl’s office forwarded the pictures to a zoologist at the Pittsburgh Zoo — one of the most respected zoos in the U.S.
“In the zoologists’ professional opinion, this was not a penguin,” said Dick Skrinjar, director of communications for the Pittsburgh mayor. “It’s a kiwi. So your mayor has made a mistake.”
Skrinjar said Senators fans will quickly recognize what real penguins look like — once they hit the ice at Scotiabank Place.
“You will quickly recognize their backs as they blow by you,” he said.
