The greatest of the Great Old Ones and Zeroes.

Cthulhu was a Great Old One.
Of him the maddened cultists sung:
his realm had non-Euclidity,
fair R'lyeh, sunk beneath the sea.

His face was octopoid and green,
and caused insanity when seen;
with rugose kin from heaven's field
and ichor-matter scarce-congealed.

But long ago he went away,
and what he dreameth none can say;
'til differently align the stars -
Cthulhu fhtagn! Ia!

Another plush toy based on the Linux penguin “Tux”. This one is, of course, also based on H.P. Lovecraft's "Cthulhu".

The toy was modified slightly from the original pattern (at http://www.free-penguin.org). Apart from the obvious changes in colours, the head area was enlarged and reshaped slightly, and the beak replaced by the six tentacles (or whatever they are -- 'attributes'?). The arms were also extended.
