Games Pandas Play

I love lists. I'm a big fan of making lists, even if "make a list" is on the list, because once the list is complete, I get to check that first item off. Check! Mama Kat's at it again, spacey and forgetful this week but with great prompts. I'm choosing the list. It feels like I'm accomplishing something.

3.) List your five most recent favorite things.

1. Panda Porn.
I had a meeting tonight for a committee I'm on for a volunteer organization to which I belong. One of my committee colleagues works at the National Zoo, which is very cool to the rest of us, and she was filling us in on Zoo stuff. The Zoo has two Great Pandas, and the Panda family is trying for another baby. Apparently, the male in question ("Tian Tian") isn't very good at making that happen. So, they showed them Panda Porn. You know, videos of actual Pandas mating in the wild, hoping it would.. get him in the mood. Show him some... pointers. (In the end, they had to artificially inseminate. Apparently, it's a buzz kill when the zookeeper is watching.)

2. Tar Heels beating the Blue Devils.
Whew! Dook was up by nine at one point! The elbow to Hansbrough's head was a nice touch.

3. Snark.
All things snarky. Why is snarky not in spellcheck?

4. Steven Pearlstein, columnist from the Washington Post.

5. Getting blog comments.

And this is just from today!

No hint there, with #5.

Panda porn!?! That's hillarious. What if it had ACTUALLY worked!?!? Seriously what were they thinking with that? :)

I heard it was a guy and a nympho dressed in Panda suits...

I've heard of that strategy used for other animals in zoos. Seriously, would even porn work for you if you were trapped in a cage and being observed??

Panda porn - that might be the funniest thing I've heard in a awhile. I love it.

I've been so bad about commenting, CB, and I promise to be better. I too found "panda porn" amusing. Poor pandas... how embarrassing.
