What's Up with this Penguin?

This Summer we have been buying North Star Patriot Pops, they are a cheap, moderately tasty, fairly low calorie, Popsicle. The issue I have with them is the artwork on the box, apparently that is a penguin waving an American flag and wearing an Uncle Sam top hat (and work boots?). I find this problematic as Penguins live almost exclusively in the Southern Hemisphere and are extremely unlikely to be American (or even Canadian). The idea that Penguins live in the Arctic is less irritating to me than the Monkey/Ape confusion I have previously posted about, but it is a problem.
