Lesson 2 in hoaxing your screen capture:

Try not to make it dimensionally identical to the one you copied and modified. Burty also made this mistake when copying yours. You should also have got rid of the bit of window border (at the bottom) that I included intentionally knowing that if someone copied mine they would forget to take it out and I would be able to tell

You may have wanted to move the penguin a bit further from the sine too. He was after all suposed to have travelled further.
