The Park Avenue offices of the private equity firm the Blackstone Group got a visit yesterday from a pair of penguins, according to the firm's Twitter account.

The penguins, who were on loan for the day from Sea World (which Blackstone owns), apparently took a break from pooping all over the floor to delight a bunch of bored office workers. They also posed with Marco Rubio and Blackstone boss Steve Schwarzman, and spent the afternoon asking Blackstone's accountants how to get their income taxed at capital gains rates.
