How about a penguin smoking a big fat joint with fully bloodshot eyes? :)
But at the end of the day, its just a bootlogo.. By default, it should be
as neutral and least offensive as possible to the good majority of people.

seen the beer drinking logo, only because its a highly experimental
feature of a development kernel, and surely not going to be the "default"
