Mike and Stu, arguing about whether Penguin Keets are Samurai or Ninja:

to which Mike responds:

to which Stu responds:

Stu is to blame for them. The first mention I can find of them online is March 17, 2004 in the Whitewall list:

Subsequently, Stu tried to pin it on me, but he was insufficiently devious (or rolled on 00 on his fasttalk skill):

Jane's first mention of Penguin Keets was later, June 30, 2005: So, no blaming poor Jane for inducing Penguin-Keet dementia.

Finally, on the real question of whether they are Samurai or Ninja, the first mention was of samurai Penguin Keet. This obviously proves that there were ninja Penugin Keet at the same time. How do I know this? Did you hear or see the ninja Penguin Keet then? No? That proves they were there. (Their black armor covers the white patch until they reveal themselves.)
