Fighting panda extinction

In China, a lot of panda cubs were born in captivity last year (34, to be exact). That's cause for celebration, especially for those who fawn over the evolutionary dead-enders.

BEIJING - Eighteen Chinese baby pandas, blinking under the bright lights of live television, were presented with their names on Saturday with all the glitz and glamour of a movie premiere.

The 18 were paraded in little baby prams on state television after their names had been chosen by Internet surfers.

Panda cubs in baby strollers: anthropomorphization to the point of schizophrenia.
