Pandas are sickeningly cute. But they’re also dumb as fuck. They survive almost entirely on bamboo, which poses all kinds of problems; they frequently kill their young by accident or neglect; and they seem to have something against sex and reproducing more sickeningly-cute-but-dumb-as-fuck panda spawn.
Researchers at the famed Hetaoping Research and Conservation Centre in Sichuan Province, China, have been working their asses off to keep these adorable dummies from disappearing off the face of the planet, and one of their innovations is dressing themselves up in panda suits when it comes time to introduce the real pandas into the wild. To, presumably, get those pandas raised in captivity used to being around other pandas, or something like that?
No idea if it’ll work–the last panda the Hetaoping researchers introduced into the wild, pre-panda suits, didn’t fare so well–but we’re pretty sure if we–with our physical and mental hangovers, our lingering colds, and our late-in-the-year ennui–got a giant panda hug this Monday, even a fake giant panda hug, our introduction back into the wild of the workweek would feel a lot less painful.
Thanks, Dave and Leonard!
