OMG so effing cute

FIVE?!? Talk about overkill. A flaming mascot? A fish? With arms and legs? that a bird or a frog on the far right? Mascot designers, please pass the bong over here as well, so I can try and understand what inspired all of you. Good god, once the headgear comes off they're indistinguishable from each other. That should make for some pretty interesting identity-swapping tales to rival even those of Sweet Valley High's Wakefield twins.

Well at least the panda made it into the final five. It's the only one that gives the Friendlies any credibility even if it's been receiving Hiltonesque levels of overexposure lately. Have you seen what's been happening around the world? Internally, the Communist Party is calling it a pandamic.

Thailand hosted the first panda marriage ceremony, leading conservatives to call for an outright ban on low-sex marriages. The Chinese Consul, played the part of a caring parent, telling the newlyweds "“Start making children soon. Don’t let me down.” Here is the bride gorging herself on wedding cake while the groom slurred his way through an improvised speech.

Tai Shan who was recently born at the Smithsonian National Zoo is now 4 months old. Reports say that "Tai Shan has been able to walk back into the den, but not without running into barriers". Clearly one of the staff has been putting a nip of brandy in his baby bottle.

The female panda cub at the San Diego National Zoo just turned 100 days old and was formally given the name of Su Lin. Rejected names included Jzardenay Jzonquil, Peightyn, Meltonia and La'Miracle Chasitie.

Two pandas are scheduled to be delivered to Taiwan as a gesture of goodwill. They are understandably apprehensive about migrating to a place where pineapple shrimp, wasabi cuttlefish, strawberry tuna and mango seaweed are legitimate ice cream flavours.

Back in China, the Woolong nature reserve has welcomed twin panda cubs. Born with the natural smoky eyeliner effect that other less fortunate twins can only hope to emulate.

My panda picture collection is far from exhausted so be sure to check back here for more updates. I have absolutely no qualms about dishing on all the latest and hottest gossip. It comes with the territory of being cute and endangered.

You're a genius. Not only is no one else out there pandablogging, but you also made the connection between the adorable bears and the Olsens. Who could use a lesson on fattening up on Chinese food, while we're at it.
