Bear Hug

Here comes the What-A-Schmuck headline of the day:

Panda in China zoo bites student who wanted a hug

The bitten student later said, “Yang Yang was so cute and I just wanted to cuddle him. I didn’t expect he would attack.”

Well, as Shakti Kapoor has found out in various films, you can’t just randomly attempt to cuddle cute creatures—consent is required. That is especially true when the cute creature in question has been confined all its life. My sympathy’s entirely with Yang Yang here—next time, Yang, snap the fool’s head off. Thank you.

(Yes, I haven’t had breakfast yet. Otherwise I’d probably find this poignant.)
