Traumatised Pandas Calmed Down By Bamboo

As you know, Sichuan province in China recently endured a massive earthquake. That province houses the Wolong Panda Reserve, and the Pandas there were apparently very upset by the natural disaster. The Chinese authorities have evacuated them to Beijing, and are attempting to help them over their upset by giving them lots of bamboo. And hugs.

Would you like to know more?

You claim to love pandas and yet are not even offering to fly out there to administer hugs?

For shame Ian, for shame...

thanks for the update Ian, I was worried about the pandas

Kvlol, they do not need amateur hugs, they need hugs from skilled professionals. I have not yet been to hug school.

Fuck that. I'm on the next plane out to offer my amateur hugging services to the pandas. I also do a good line in hair brushing.

That's the spirit Jennifer! Ian's hair brushing skills have grown rusty over the years...

The idea of hug school successfully makes me all squee cuddlestein mountain and creeps me out ALL AT THE SAME TIME
