Say my name

Since my last post was about sex and libido, I thought I'd end the day with this touching story out of Thailand.

After two years of being strictly platonic, pandas Chuang Chuang and Lin Hui finally got busy.

In case you were wondering:
The pandas started the mating dance Sunday with a mock wrestling bout, according to officials at the Chiang Mai Zoo in northern Thailand. From there, the pair began sniffing one another on Tuesday and mated later in the day.

"The pandas are very happy. For the last two days, they have made love together," said Rossukhon Chuicomwong, head of public relations for the Chiang Mai Zoo. "We are so happy because maybe we'll have a baby panda soon."


The Thai press Wednesday was filled with photos of the black and white bears mating. Hundreds of visitors gathered at the zoo to watch the ritual, which officials expect will continue for two or three days.
Here's a picture of Chuang Chuang enjoying the panda version of the post-coital cigarette:

No word yet on whether Chuang Chuang plans to call Lin Hui within the industry-standard two-day waiting period.

Uh oh...I wouldn't get my hopes up...if you zoom in really tight on that first photo, I'm afraid you'll see a discarded condom wrapper.
