Man Bites Panda
Sometimes it takes a lot of work to uncover news stories to make fun of. Other times, God delivers them to your doorstep nicely gift-wrapped with a little tag that says, "Cheers!"
The case of Chinese building worker Zhang Xinyan is one of those fortuitous latter opportunities. Mr. Zhang, having had four pints of beer over lunch while on holiday, decided it would be a neat idea to intrude into the territory of one of nature's most adorable beasts; one who has captured the hearts of the world yet is unfortunately known for being somewhat inept with its young.
No, not Britney Spears. A giant panda.
Zhang jumped the fence around the enclosure of Gu Gu, a 7-year-old panda at Beijing Zoo, with the intent, he later told reporters, of giving him a hug. Gu Gu, rightly noting that there is a line roughly six billion people long of people who want to hug him, gave the jumper what for by running up and biting him on the legs.
