Pandalicious

In the "great minds think alike" category, Gretchen sends me this:

Man bites panda in Beijing zoo as retribution
BEIJING - A drunken Chinese migrant worker jumped into a panda enclosure at the Beijing Zoo, was bitten by the bear and retaliated by chomping down on the animal's back, state media said Wednesday.

Apparently "Gu Gu" got her own in, and the man is in stitches.

Meanwhile, another reader sends this panda artificial insemination photo essay, which, well, let's just say it may not be entirely work-safe.

And that site (which approaches critter-fetish, I would say) has Google ads from Obey Butterstick!, which just seems weird:

RIGHT THINKING WILL BE REWARDED WRONG THINKING WILL BE PUNISHED OBEY HIS PANDIC VISAGE
For too long we Pandas have been content to cavort for your pleasure.
Eating bamboo, rolling in the mud, flashing our big cute eyes at you.
No more. Panda Power is here.

I'm telling you, all this panda press is just encouraging these people.

On the other hand, it does have some more interesting qualities than this incessant hominid fossil reporting...
