"and one even luckier winner ("Knud" by name) won a Grand Prize of all five mafia items and a Crimbo Suit - which led to disgraceful scenes as the winner was physically assaulted and variously Bullied, Burninated and Backstabbed even while he was still asleep, and his Crimbo Pants removed by force before he even knew he had them. (A few generous friends of his clubbed together to buy him a replacement pair, showing that not all common decency is yet lost in Loathing.)"
My e-penis hurts. What happened here was that, in the time of bugmeat, I had obtained a pair of crimbo pants. When Knud lost his in a PvP battle, we worked out an elaborate trade arrangement. In exchange for the tattoo, he got the pants to keep. --Aardvark (Talk | Contribs) 05:39, 10 Oct 2005 (MDT)

"Many of the Kingdom's newest immigrants found themselves smashed up, for no reason other than that they were recent immigrants" Yea... that was me.
So thats what happened. Amazing story. I seriously came in right when all the capping and stuff was going on and believe you me, I was confused. I donated some meat and booze to the yeti funds and now I understand what it was all for.
Great story. -Nate_Pyrokai

When are the penguins gonna do something more interesting than do raffles?--ZeLinator 11:26, 5 July 2006 (CDT)
I think the whole idea of KWE being run by the Mafia is a bit farfetched. I think the fixed nature of the fights is taking a jab at pro wrestling, not hinting at a conspiracy. Besides, the penguins have already returned by other means. --Nucular 23:16, 14 July 2006 (CDT)
After the recent changes in the peak, some Mob Penguins were found frozen in the ice. I don't know how to put links so could someone else add that to the page and link to the frozen penguin adventure.-Lord Sonny
Help me understand
I wasn't around during the time of the meatbug, nor the Penguin Mafia, so I'm a little confused about the storyline. It says that the events leading up to the Penguin Mafia began on July 28 and August 4, 2004. Then it says that on August 8th, the meat bug was publicized, and that's when the developers use the Penguin Mafia to remove hacked meat from the game. So, what I don't understand is, was that just coincidence that they introduced the Mafia a couple days before the meat bugs were exploited? That doesn't seem to make sense. --Duke33 14:12, 30 December 2006 (CST)
Yep, it was a total coincidence. We introduced the penguins because Peak-farming was out of control, and we wanted cut it down some and do some other little meat-sinks. Little did we know we'd soon need some *major* meat-sinks. --Riff 00:41, 1 January 2007 (CST)
I rewrote the June 17th events, but Quietust was a bit faster than me. ;) My version, for prosperity-
June 18, 2007: A freak storm throws the Penguin Mafia's mining operation into disarray, and Adventurers are finally able to explore the site for themselves. The Mob Penguin Smashers, Smiths, and Supervisors are more than eager to get back to their previous jobs-- smashing, bashing, and generally roughing up curious adventurers. Strangely enough, Adventurers were no longer being hurt by the Grimacite radiation, and the Penguins started dropping depleted Grimacite. --TechSmurf 16:47, 20 June 2007 (CDT)
