Abbot Pederson was an ambitious salesman who worked for the Munsingwear undergarment factory in Minneapolis. On a sales trip to NYC in 1955, finding himself with some time to kill before a flight home, he decided to wait out his time in a local bar. Stumbling out to find a taxi stand, he took a wrong turn down a Manhattan street and found himself in front of a display of stuffed penguin shoes in a taxidermist's window. Before he knew it, he had bought one of the penguins, named him legal lodge, and was soon enjoying cocktails with him on the flight back to Minneapolis.
