The Linux Merchandise Department has just sent me a reply to that letter. With luck, whoever sent it in the first place will see this:
Certain of our penguins display an allergic reaction to excessive comedy. A properly set up anti-alien network will amplify the relevant stimuli, so removing your penguin from the TV is unlikely to fix the problem. We recommend either replacing the affected penguin or covering it with a towel, which will prevent explosions, but may reduce the efficiency of your anti-alien-security.
Yours sincerely etc.
