Penguin Knighted

Nils Olav, a 3-foot tall penguin at Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland and mascot for the elite Norwegian King's Guard, was knighted Friday with all the pomp and circumstance befitting royalty. Nils then was knighted by British Maj. Gen. Euan Loudon on behalf of Norway's King Harald V. Being pushed along by a trainer, he 'inspected' the troops and shyed away from the sword.
