Lunchroom Larfs- February 11, 2014
It took hours of deliberation by the judges to decide if the penguins should share a gold medal or one receive a gold and the other a silver. In the end they shared the gold, which was good news for the team from Monaco who would then receive the silver.

The team went home humiliated and were ostracized in their home country.
