Because I Refuse to Panda

I have now placed all members of the species Ailuropoda melanoleuca at the national zoo in Washington, DC on my list of They Who Must Not Be Named:
A giant panda at a zoo in the United States has given birth to twin cubs.

Keepers at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington DC only discovered Mei Xiang was pregnant during an ultrasound scan last week. The zoo said both cubs appeared healthy.

Giant pandas are one of the most endangered species in the world and are notoriously hard to breed in captivity.

The National Zoo is one of only four zoos in the US to have pandas, which are on loan from China.
Call me a traditionalist, but if I want to overload you with cuteness, I will use cats.
