Penguins. We all love them. And if you don’t, you should. Because what’s not to like? They’re funny, they’re cute, and, well, they spend their lives living on frozen blocks of ice so I think they deserve a little appreciation.

So in honor of the noble penguin, and as part of Penguin Awareness Day (January 20th, although I’m sure you already knew that), Bored Panda has compiled a list of our favorite penguin pictures. Penguins, we salute you.
