are pandas really cute?


Panda Bears are extremely cute. Even the more raccoon like red panda. I don't honestly know very much about them. But I've browsed the WIKI on them, eaten at Panda Express a few times, and generally appreciated the WWF until they forced the World Wrestling Federation to change their name that is...

But today on the front page of Yahoo news, they had this story and picture. The headline: Giant Panda Gives Birth to Giant Cub. Are you serious!? THAT's what a baby panda looks like? That ugly little rat thing. I mean it looks like a... I dunno, I guess it looks like a baby panda. I thought everyone should see this picture and decide for themselves what it means though. Apparently, this cub is the largest ever on record weighing in at 218 gm. Labor for the momma took 36 hours too, another record.

No wonder Colbert hates bears, they have extremely unattractive babies...

The good news though Is that your hero and mine Jack Black is embracing this ugly little critter to bring us the fantastic looking upcoming animated feature Kung Fu Panda...

The story revolves around Po (Black) a lazy, inept, and generally unmotivated panda living in the valley of peace who discovers that he is the prophesized chosen one to defend his homeland from evil invaders, now he must train quickly to learn the ancient arts of Kung Fu and save his home.

It co-stars the voices of Dustin Hoffman, Jackie Chan, Lucy Lui, and Angelina Jolie. It's set for release in May of '08. IMDB, WIKI

how do i never hear about such important films? a panda film starring the voices of jack black and jackie chan is numero uno on my list of animated films starring marsupials. but i do agree that smokey the bear should be replaced with smokey the dolphin, colbert is always right in regards to bear mascots.
