Today I was playing club penguin wanting to play as much as possible before it closes and I went to the iceberg and managed to tip it with other people. I was very happy to have accomplished it as I recall trying to tip it since I joined CP 6 years ago. This brought up the question in my mind: where does the iceberg tipping rumour come from? What are its origins?
The earliest post I can find about tipping the iceberg is from December 17, 2006 so the rumour probably originated in Club Penguin's early years and mostly by the community and whatever the CP team had mentioned about the iceberg at the time.
The rumor would have started once CP released the Miners Helmet. Penguins would have simply drilled at the Iceberg and they had assumed that it would tip. Eventually this rumor spread to blogs and on other social media. CP started making comics, wallpapers and postcards about it. Eventually, a painting of a tipped iceberg was found in the renovated Lodge Attic.There is also a stamp called 'Berg Drill'. Eventually, this rumor came true.
