    SeaWorld became a publicly traded company Friday and entered the market with a splash, bringing a horde of penguins to the floor at the NYSE. (Via Sapna)

    Cutest ever day at the stock exchange.

    Unfortunately, these men are not cheering on the penguins...

    They're cheering the fact that shares of SeaWorld Entertainment Inc, rose as much as 22 percent on their debut day, valuing the theme park company at around $3.05 billion.

    But gentlemen, really: PENGUINS.

    There was also apparently a lemur and an otter in attendance, but everyone was so struck by these penguins that they forgot to take pictures of them.

    So... where do I buy shares in penguins?
