Tux is the Linux Mascot created by Larry Ewing, and chosen by Linus Torvalds as the Linux mascot because of the endless possibilities of showing Tux. He, unlike a fruit or a piece of glass, is under GPL and is much cooler. People have the rights to show tux in anyway without getting sued and still able to show how awesome he is.
Something Tux could say:
Tux: I've been a mascot, an apple eater, a quake slip-gate ranger, and I have pissed on windows many times. I also flew right through one. Numerous times have I been with hot beautiful female models.
A super cool penguin that loves to share!
...his father, Linux, taught him everything he knows.
Linux: "son, your gonna grow up in a world where os's charge to use them. Don't let that put you down, just be yourself, tux"
