Emily S., you are toooooo much. This looks like Butterball the Panda—is it? Do tell!

YAWWWWN [streeeetch]



Hmm?  Whaa?
…Oh.  Sorries.

As the cliché goes, we’ve been up to our eyeballs in alligators.  (Hmm, maybe shoulda used that as the photo?  Dunno.  Can’t think yet.)  Wasn’t what you’d call a relaxing weekend.  Updates a-comin’ though.  This one’s from the San Francisco Chronicle again… gotta love ’em.  Photo of Mei Xiang snapped by Ron Edmonds (AP).

Best photo of Knut EVAR!!!1!

Knut, the International Subearstar, is steppin’ it up a notch with this one. Crimminy, People.

Sender-inner Brinke thinks this is the best Knut photo yet. I am cautiously optimistic, but I’m wondering what you think. And I’m talkin’ to you Annie Leibowitz.



Brinke G., Danke!

Hibernation suuuuuuuuuuucks! [singsong]

Yer hair gits all matted and you have sleep in your eye capsules, and yer SUPER HUNGRY

Panda ‘Tocks Alert, People!


Yahoo and Reuters are reportin’ that Knut the polar bear has something to say. (Please check out his "wazzup Bitches" [snicker] paw pads pose below)


And, that tongue ain’t goin’ back in, People.

The gut? priceless.


Katt, this is a totally potent submishe…

Name this Panda

In fact, don’t just name this panda, name ALL EIGHTEEN BEBEH pan-pan cubs in a Name a Giant Panda contest put on by the Research and Conservation Center for Giant Pandas. is collecting name submissions until February 5.

May I suggest: "’Tock ‘Tock"? (Will you puh-lease check out bebeh panda #13 below)



Pandafix, THE place to snort panda photos, told us about this breaking panda news. [bowing head in thanks] Oh, and Pandafix is the only place on teh InterWebs with a category called "Panda Lovemaking." And you thought I was weird.

Hey Atlanta Zoo? High Five!

Check out the sweetness that is "Mei Lan" the prize bebeh panda of the Atlanta Zoo. She’s learning valuable lessons, right in front of your eyes!

Lesson 1. How to eat bamboo. Snorgle first, then place in chompers like Columbo.


Lesson 2. For best results during media visits, pretend it’s your 1986 school pic and post with a "log".



3. Life’s cruel lesson: [Say in Casey Kasem radio voice] "Keep your feet on the ground, and keep reaching for those stars"

Ehn! (Also, please note complete lack of ‘tocks)


and Lesson 4: Try and focus your eyeballs. This isn’t the Chihuahua exhibit.


Way to be a sender-inner, Erin G. ;)


Redonkulous Panditude

Um, MIRRORED Pandas!?

Especially imagery that involves Rule #7?!

Please, it’s too early in the morning for this.

  Like mom like son
