What with the all the goings on in DC, Our Man completely forgot about goings on closer to home, namely blog of the week (even better than soup of the day), where he can point readers in the right direction (and maybe get the odd reciprocal hit or two back (what Our Man giveth with one hand, he taketh with two grasping fists, that's the Way of the Blogger, don't you know) when, darn it, Our Man was beaten to it, by a Penguin, no less. Yes, the modestly titled Japan. A blog. By a Penguin. linked to Our Man first. Well, fair dinkum, Our Man appreciates the hits, and more importantly, he had a good old-fashioned chortle at the penguin's posts. Our Penguin doesn't appear to blog about politics much, but Our Man likes his style, and gives heartfull communication to him (that was a very clever joke because, er, just click on the link, OK?) and is happy to recommend him to all who wish to sail upon him. And yes, that absurdly small picture is a penguin thermos flask.
