  • My fellow Penguins, I have heard ominous rumors about a dark secret. I'm talking about our new member Agent Blazkowicz and his deadly designs on weapons of vengeance for his return engagement against some european zmobies. Apparently, he entered this playground of death the same way we did. He was in the middle of some sort of mission against the cheese eating surrender monkeys and got blasted into the future. It seems he's got the nerve and the grey matter to resurrect such an operation. Damn cheese eating surrender monkeys. --12:17, 4 January 2008 (UTC)

History

Offical History

The Penguin Mafia had fallen on hard times. After being chased out of the Icy Peak and the Hole In The Sky, and having both their previous Dons' offed, the Penguin Mafia had been keeping up a low profile. But, after a mysterious temporal rift appeared in the past, the Penguins have nearly rebuilt the empire which they had lost. But, unknown to the other Family members, some of them were sucked into a different, special rift. This rift transported them out of the kingdom, and into the zombie infested city of Malton. A few days later, only one of them was left. So, he decided to allow non-penguins to join the Family.

The following people are wanted by the Family; if you take out one of them and give *some* proof, you may get a reward:

  • Forzan for the unprovoked attacking and murder of a living member of the family.
  • tui for the unprovoked attacking of a living member of the family.
  • inuy4sh4 for destroying vital machinery. (Last seen heading toward St. Simplicius's Church - July 31 2006)
  • Tschudimann2 for insulting the Family.
  • BigJohnson for the unprovoked attacking and murder of three living members of the family (while in the Penguin Mafia HQ, no less). (Retaliation'd) x2 (/3)
  • Anal Probe for the unprovoked attacking a living member of the family while they were standing on Sacred Ground.
  • Private Dick Hurtz for intrustion on the Stapellton Arms and the subsequent repeated unprovoked attacks and murder of living members of the family, as well as insulting the family. (Retaliation'd) x3 (/∞+1)
  • User Amc for screwing up the timestamp on the recruitment page and causing our ad (and many others) to be deleted. [1]
  • Wo0t Wo0t for the assault and murder of living family members inside the Stapellton Arms. (Retaliation'd) x1 ( /∞)
  • Sgt Dragunov Killing a living family member and then taunting said member. --Tharivol 12:31, 20 December 2006 (CST)
  • Thom Bee for interupting a trial held by the Penguin Mafia (us) by killing tonberryspoon (the plaintiff/defendant). And another time for attacking a member of the Family. (Retaliation'd) x4 ( /6)
  • c138 For the murder of a regular and helpful patron of the Stapellton Arms Nurse Bettie. (Retaliation'd) --Rgon 16:36, 7 January 2007 (UTC)
  • betteroffdead for the (apparently) unprovoked murder of Cold as Ice, a stated ally of the family. Said event took place inside the Stapellton Arms. I assume retaliation would be appropriate? In unrelated news, Foreigner Rocks! --Rgon 06:39, 8 January 2007 (UTC) Also again for destroying two pieces of waluable machinery. Also also, again for several pks. However, "betteroffdead attacked you for 1 damage.",indicates a lot of devotion to his cause. (Retaliation'd) x5 ( /7)

  • day after for the unprovoked attacking and murder of a living member of the family. (Retaliation'd) x1 ( /1)

  • Silar Slear for the unprovoked attack and murder of a living family member, Darth Xander. According to what he said, this attack seems to be incomprehensibly prompted by the victim's relation to the works of Joss Whedon.
  • bev4pf for the unprovoked assault and murder of a living family member inside the Stapellton Arms.
  • The_Anti_Mob_Penguin_Society, for obvious reasons, but particularly:
  • Shaun Bidigood For numerous offenses. As of this date, the only member of the above organization we have had contact with to my knowledge. --Rgon 22:25, 23 June 2010 (BST)

References

Do you see a reference on this page, our Handbook, our recruiting blurb, or on the Stapellton Arms that is not listed here? Then, feel free to add it!

Penguin Mafia

  • The 'References' section is a reference in itself to the KoL Wiki where there is a 'References' section at the botom of wiki pages to list the various pop culture references in the game.
  • The Don Bot may be a reference to the Don Bot from the animated television show, Futurama. But it is actually not.
  • The term "Retaliation'd", is a reference to "Arrow'd", a word used in Teen Girl Squad from the Homestar Runner series.
  • The Mr. and Little Ms. titles are a reference to the Mr. Men And Little Miss books.
    • It is also a reference to the Mr. and Ms. Accesories from KoL.
  • The introduction message for Tharivol123 is a reference to the difficulty most people have in pronouncing the character's name. (In case you were wondering, it is pronounced Thár e vole).
  • Funnykitty2's introduction message contains a reference to the movie Snakes on a Plane, starring actor Samuel L. Jackson. And, as I'm sure you know what it is, nothing more needs to be said.
  • Dirk Rapier's introduction message references an episode of the TV series South Park in which a group of gnomes appear stealing underwear as part of their plan; 1) Steal underpants, 2) ?????, 3) Profit!
  • The first portion of Dabnorfish's intro contains lyrics from the song "Puttin' on the Ritz" by Taco.
  • Dabnorfish' intro contains lines " Last night he dressed in tails and pretended he was on the town. It's hard to slow him down when he's playing solitare while watching Captain Kangaroo." which reference The Statler Brothers - Counting flowers on the wall.
  • Honorary Member Cold as Ice is stated to be willing to sacrifice our love, which complete the first line of the song "Cold as Ice" by Foreigner. And you know you love Foreigner, just admit it.
  • The Phrase "That's Ridiculous. It's not even funny" following Rule 11 is a reference to the song "Time Zones" by Negativland. Of course, this is a very common reference in the Kingdom of Loathing as well.
  • Rule 13 refences the song "Don't Pay the Ferryman" by Chris de Burgh. The reference perhaps made more appropriate by 13 being unlucky, and Jick being a well-known triskaidekaphobe.
    • Rule 13 also segues into a reference to the popular children's book "Green Eggs and Ham" by Dr. Seuss.
      • The words "I am Sam" replace the books character Sam I am. I am Sam is a movie featuring a mentally handicapped individual attempting to retain custody of his daughter.
  • The phrase "Semper Fi" is short for the Latin "Semper Fidelis" (Always Faithful), which is the motto of, among other groups and entities, the US Marine Corps.
  • David Delling's introduction contains a number of refences to common "facts" stated about Chuck Noris across the internet (as seen here).
  • Chookster's introduction message references (or rather, gives a transcript of) the popular Weebl's Stuff animation the Ultimate Showdown of Ultimate Destiny. If you haven't already seen it you should probably remedy that. Most of the image links provided are not of the character indicated, but a play on that character.
  • A flock of chickens' introduction contains a reference to a well known incident in Legend of Zelda games, where attacking a chicken with your sword results in being attacked by a massive group of chickens.
  • Your dad's introduction contains a reference to Abbot and Costello's "Who's on First" bit.
  • Snufalufagus's introduction message is a reference to the song "Mrs. Robinson" by Simon & Garfunkle
  • "Tervez's introduction has a number of references:
    • First, It begins referencing Pinky and the Brain from the cartoon Animaniacs (in this case Meh64 being The Brain and Tervez being Pinky)
    • Requesting quantities of seemingly useless items, often in significant quantities is a fairly standard (if sometimes obnnoxious and unimaginative) technique in fantasy (and often science fiction and other genres) gaming. Three of the four items requested seem to be vague take-offs on items from the old country (some quite recent)
      • 1-Duct Tape (Of which there is unresolved debate concerning whether Duck or Duct is the original spelling and pronunciations as briefly summarized here).
      • 2-Colonel Mustard is a character and suspect in the classic coard game Clue (or Cluedo) (recently an item called Colonel Mustard's Lonely Spades Club Jacket was unearthed in the old country.
      • 3-The subatomic pedometer sounds rather like a sub-molecular interocitor (appearing the kingdom for Crimboween, in 2006). The sub-molecular interocitor in turn references the feature film of
        • "Mystery Science Theater 3000", which in turn references the featured old film "This Island Earth", which in turn references the novel of the same name by Raymond Jones, which in turn references some other stuff, I'm sure.
      • 4-A turkey blaster would most likely be a rather good pun on the term turkey baster. I imagine it being like the latter, but far more powerful. I'm actually excited at the whole prospect.
    • The final line references the Simpson's episode "Marge v. the Monorail" in which a song is sung about the monorail with that line.
  • Foxflare's introduction references the song "Candy Mountain Cave" featured in a reasonably well-known YouTube video. Like many other such video's, it's creepy beyond compare. The title and lyrics are a bit reminiscent of "Big Rock Candy Mountain" if you made that song sugar-sweet and extra creepy.
  • Ragnurok's introduction references an episode of Doctor Who called "Family of Blood". The disguised-schoolteacher-ancient-alien-crime-fighter-general-hero-sort-of-fellow would be The Doctor, and the phone booth would be his spaceship, the TARDIS.
  • Don Pygoscelis' name references a certain genus of penguins.


Recruitment

  • The question 'Did you used to work at a box company?' is a reference to the character John Locke from the television show Lost, who used to work at a box company.
  • The question "Who Killed Mr. Boddy?" tells the objective of the popular board game of Clue (or Cluedo). Seems like everyone had a problem with Mr. Boddy. You would think he would take a hint and just be LeeVing. One! One lame pun! Ha ha ha!
    • The last two sentences of the previous point refer respectively to the actor Lee Ving who played Mr. Boddy in the 1985 film Clue, and The Count of Sesame Street who is a vampire puppet and has nothing to do with anything at all.
  • The following question, "How many roads must a man walk down..." refers to perhaps the most well known song by [wikipedia:Bob_Dylan|Bob Dylan] "Blowin' in the Wind."


the Stapellton Arms

  • The "July 1900" entrance is a reference to a series of adventures in Kingdom of Loathing. In KoL, if you try to adventure being drunk, you are given one of the "Drunken Stupor" adventures, wich are usually bad for your health (or your wallet's). The big tall guy is a reference to a special kind of Drunken Stupor (St. Sneaky Pete's Day Stupor) named "Watch Where You're Going, Jerk!". The sentence "You shouldn't be here." is given to the player if he tries to go on a St.'s Day Stupor via the "Last Adventure" link in the following day.


Handbook

  • The instructions on how to deal with zombies in HQ in the Handbook is likely a reference to the "catchphrase" of the Daleks from the popular British television series Doctor Who.
  • The comment "Good thing he didn't forget his towel" at the end of the Handbook is a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, in which we find that the [wikipedia:Towel|towel] is, in fact, the most useful tool in the galaxy. Of course, the sort of froods in the Penguin Mafia always know where their towel is.
  • The use of the word floopily in the handbook is also a reference to The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams. It means "in the manner of a happy mattress.
  • The third step in the Human-Outside-HQ procedure at External Affairs is, of course, a reference to an effect acquired by getting one's ass kicked in the Kingdom of Loathing. So it's a reference that encourages referencing.


Locations

  • The Nearest correctly spelled cemetary is a reference to Kingdom Of loathing In itself. In KoL, The place where you adventure is called the "Misspelled Cemetary" where you can fight Smart Skletons, and Skeleletons, and many other things.
