I added a silly new icon called May Contain Penguins 

[penguin] 

What do you think?

I got some ideas for some more games it can go for.

Super Mario 64 needs the icon, that game is loaded with penguins.  Mega Man X has "Chill Penguin" as one of the bosses.  Mario Kart 64 has you dodging penguins in one of the courses. Crash bandicoot 2 has a lot of penguin enemies.  Kirby's arch nemesis, King Dedede seems to be a penguin.

The new penguin (not fred gwinn) icon is sweet with the solid white background. Some other icons, like the arthur award, might also benefit with a solid color background.

Having once seen the movie Over the Top, I came to the sudden realization that arm wrestling is competitive, not cooperative. Maybe that icon could be holding hands instead.

In the case of the penguin, the white background was necessary because it would have blended into the black background.

The competitive icon is not so much arm wrestling as it is a "guys handshake".

As for the holding-hands, I was saving that for the gay/lesbian/transgender icon.  Hey, it's 2014 so we have to be progressive right?
