It’s All Going To Be OK: The Zoo Pandas Signed a Five-Year Extension

Why do we suddenly see members of Congress referring inanely to nerdface Hu Jintao, the weakest leader in the history of the People’s Republic of China, as a “dictator” and a murdering “gangster”? Our pandas have been SECURED. That’s right, Washington, your pandas have signed a five-year extension, so you can rest assured that your mediocre zoo will continue to be somewhat used for something other than as a jogging track. “The pandas may be a cultural attraction we had to borrow from China, but everything in Washington is borrowed from China, and we need something to put on our Metro cards.” But despite the free speech grandstanding, if China suddenly becomes a democracy we probably will lose the pandas, haha.

Forgotten Butterstick Released From Chinese Prison

What has become of Washington’s beloved comedy animal, Butterstick the Panda Bear? If this tragic BBC News photo is to be trusted, the once-adored animal is now a beaten, sad-faced monster finally let out of its horror jail after god knows how many weeks. It’s probably crazier than John McCain at this point, and looks just as mean and stupid. [BBC News via Wonkette Operative “Alex P.”] Read more on Forgotten Butterstick Released From Chinese Prison…

China Tired of Loaning Us Everything, Seizes Butterstick From Washington Zoo

Beloved black-and-white poopbag “Butterstick” has finally been seized by our Chinese overlords and flown back to Red China, where the sad worn-out creature will be brutally interrogated for his contacts with the Dalai Lama. And then, magically, the famous bear will suddenly start manufacturing stuff and building gleaming new cities of glass and steel, and instead of poop, 18% annualized growth will shoot from its sore ass.

Farewell, Butterstick: Unwanted Panda Being Shipped To China

Good lord, has it really been five years since famous baby panda “Butterstick” — which means Tai Shan in Chinese — was born in the Washington zoo? Yes it has, even though it feels like at least 50 years ago, and the once-adorable little puppet has turned into an immense, terrifying monster. Sometime this morning, the National Zoo will announce that Butterstick is being sent to China, forever. After all, China’s on the up and America’s on the down & out.

Asses: Another Installment In an Irregular Series

By the Comics CurmudgeonAs your Comics Curmudgeon demonstrated earlier this year, political cartoonists love butts. Just love ’em! The ass is the most polysemous of images, representing everything from sex appeal to debasement and humiliation to an actual butt. So we’re presenting a panoply of ass shots this week, with a greater emphasis on sodomy. But those of you who aren’t butt fans (even though such a person is scarcely imaginable), fear not! There will also be severed limbs. Read more on Asses: Another Installment In an Irregular Series…

Panda Pregancy Is Not So Black And White (Sorry!)

It doesn’t matter whether the National Zoo’s panda’s uterus is half full or half empty—the important thing is how you look at it. [DCist] Read more on Panda Pregancy Is Not So Black And White (Sorry!)… Read more on Panda Pregancy Is Not So Black And White (Sorry!)…

THAT’S NOT CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN: “‘Because competent mating did not occur,’ the zoo statement said, veterinarians anesthetized both pandas on Saturday, collected semen from Tian Tian and inserted it into Mei Xiang’s uterus.” [Washington Post] Read more on …
 

Thug Panda Butterstick Nearly Humps D.C. Zookeeper’s Leg To Death

The kids, they grow up so fast these days! Not so long ago, our little Butterstick was the National Zoo’s newest adorable panda cub, conceived in a blissful and loving act of artificial insemination. Now officially called “Tai Shan,” he is all growns up and raping zookeepers. At least, we assume that is what they mean when the Washington Post says he made “physical contact” with one of his caretakers. Read more on Thug Panda Butterstick Nearly Humps D.C.

GOP Banking On America’s Furryphobia

That tiny picture lost in a sea of shitty Web design above is Pander Bear, the Republicans’ latest sinister weapon in the battle to stop Hillary Clinton. They’re forcing some poor underpaid sap to don a panda suit and harass the senator at various events. The joke is that she’s willing to “pander” for votes … get it? Because panda sounds like pander, and that’s a pun, and Americans love puns and pandas and hate Hillary. Read more on GOP Banking On America’s Furryphobia…
 

Help Name 18 Lousy Little Baby Pandas!

Remember the innocent days of 2004 or whenever and how much you loved the National Zoo’s pet panda baby, Marion Barry “Butterstick” Jr.? Well, those days aren’t coming back. But the once-loved Chinese animals are now breeding like the vermin they are, and these days nobody wants to name the little critters. This is why China is solemnly asking the world to Help Name the Number-Pandas. Not even a panda wants to spend its whole life known as “Number Five.” After the jump, we give YOU the opportunity to vote for the new official panda baby names!

Lame Atlanta Panda Gives Birth To Non-Butterstick Panda Baby

What else do you need to know? Some zoo down in CNN-ville has some low-level pandas that make even average pandas seem like Lindsey Lohan. But the incompetent mama panda was somehow inseminated — artificially, like all panda moms, even in the wild — and now there’s a baby panda that experts say is ugly and dumb and obviously no match for Butterstick.

Beware the Trojan Panda

Today our coverage of China-Taiwan relations converges with our continuing panda coverage. The L.A. Times reports: China’s latest weapon in its increasingly effective charm offensive against Taiwan is an offer of giant pandas.

That Buttery Goodness Doesn’t Come Cheap

We feel guilty covering Butterstick — and pandas more generally, such as Zoo Atlanta’s Yang Yang and Lun Lun, shown above — in the absence of a news hook. But now the New York Times has absolved us of guilt, with an article whose twee title — “Eats Shoots, Leaves, and Much of Zoos’ Budgets” — belies its hard-hitting nature.
