P P P Pick Up a Penguin

Club Penguin (Waddle around and meet new friends!) is the current online hangout of choice for my seven year old and his friends.

According to Wikipedia:
Club Penguin is an online game developed by New Horizon Interactive. Using cartoon penguins as avatars, players waddle around, chat, play minigames, and participate in other activities with one another in a snow-covered virtual world. After beta-testing, Club Penguin was made available to the general public on October 24, 2005 ........ The success of Club Penguin led to New Horizon being purchased by The Walt Disney Company in August 2007 for the sum of $350 million, with an additional $350 million in bonuses should specific targets be met by 2009.

Seven hundred million clams! I am in the wrong business.
