Item #: SCP-XXXX

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: SCP-XXXX

Description: SCP-XXXX is a human male that identifies itself as "Mr. Popper."

SCP-xxxx is able to steal penguins from zoos through unknown means, evading detection from all security measures. To date, the subject has evaded capture from multiple international intelligence agencies. The extent of the subject's capabilities, methods, and resources remains unknown.

After acquiring a penguin, the subject will hijack television programming and broadcast itself "popping" the penguin. "Popping" invariably ends with the penguin exploding violently. The event is considered to be distressing and uncomfortable to all who have viewed it, including violent D-Class subjects. The methods through which SCP-XXXX "pops" penguins varies, and may be anomalous in nature.

All attempts to locate or capture SCP-XXXX have been unsuccessful. SCP-XXXx is aware of the existence of the Foundation, and taunts agents in his broadcasts. The subject also taunts law enforcement and intelligence agencies, challenging them to capture him, to stop him from "popping" more penguins. SCP-xxxx also regularly expresses his disappointment in the performance of these agencies, in their inability to stop him.

Below is a video log from a previous broadcast:

Foreword: SCP-xxxx had hijacked television displays in Times Square, New York.

<Begin Log>

SCP-xxxx: Hello, again. I'm Mr. Popper, proudly presenting another episode of Mr. Popper's Penguins. And this is my friend, Pingu, from the ██████ Zoo. As you all know by now, Pingu is going to be popped. Such a shame you couldn't catch me. It was an easy job.

Penguin attempts to waddle away.

SCP-xxxx: No, no. You're not going anywhere yet, Pingu. Not before you've been popped. Then you're free to go here, and there, and all over the place.

SCP-xxxx hold on to penguin.

SCP-xxxx: Now, then, I want you to take a good look at Pingu. Take one last, good look at him. You should apologize to him because you couldn't save him.
Penguin struggles to escape.

SCP-xxxx: Done? Now, say bye bye to Pingu.

Penguin becomes distressed as it expands. The sounds of bones cracking and skin tearing is audible. Camera shakes from the force and is obscured by blood, bone fragments, and tissues.
