    They have had a company profile on Google Finance for a while:

  3. Stock symbol will be RST. Too bad for Rust-Oleum, Rooster Wings Bar (the biggest and best wings in Central Ohio), and of course Rastafarians Incorporated, who were going to list their company last year but then got distracted by something else.

  4. This was also reported in the Washington Post today.
