Apparently the latest craze in China is to make your dog look like a Panda.
I really feel like I should be condemning this sort of behaviour, but I think if someone offered me a panda dog I would probably take it.
For those of you that don’t know,
Differences between a panda and a dog:
Dogs crap everywhere and have a massive sex drive. Pandas eat bamboo.
Here are some panda dogs being exhibited:
The mail also write about the wild tiger dog too:
If you are going to try your new gag material out on someone, why not try it on the spiritual leader of Tibetan Buddhism?
One plucky Australian journalist thought he would try his joke out on live TV on his Holiness the Dalai Lama.
You have to give him some credit for giving it a go. Apparently his network have canceled his upcoming interviews with the Pope, an Irishman and the Virgin Mary.

Review: Henry Kissinger’s “On China” | ChinaGeeks | analysis and translation of modern China.
China Geeks review Kissinger’s new book ‘On China’. I think it is about China… need to pick up a copy to find out.
I just went to see Xu Bing‘s (徐冰) excellent installation at the British Museum.
Xu Bing is a contemporary Chinese artist and has been described as a member of the Chinese avant garde movement. The installation in the British Museum is an innovative “shadow painting” copy of a Wang Shimin 王時敏 piece from 1641.
Wang was one of the “four Wangs”, who make up four of the Six Masters of the early Qing period (清六家) : Yun Shouping, Wu Li and the Four Wangs: Wang Shimin, Wang Jian, Wang Yuanqi and Wang Hui.
In the installation Xu Bing uses discarded leaves (from Kew Gardens), old newspapers and twigs to create a shadow image of a classic Chinese landscape (山水).
Xu Bing is famous for much of his work playing with language, including a book with over 4000 different characters which are entirely original and of his own making.
He has also invented ‘New English Calligraphy’ in which he makes English look like Chinese:
Here he has written the nursery rhyme Jack and Jill: look carefully and you can read it!
Jack and Jill
Went up the hill
To fetch a pail of water
Jack fell down
And broke his crown
And Jill came tumbling after
The installation is on at the British Museum until July 10th

Watch: Wen Jiabao hoops it up for Children’s Day celebrations – Shanghaiist.
There is a disturbing trend of politicians getting their hands dirty and posing for the cameras none more than when it comes to sport. Here is Premier Wen showing us his hoop dreams:
This week Camron (as he now likes to be called) and O’bama posed like the best mates they are, playing ping pong in an attempt to show their solidarity in an attempt to say to the Chinese “we can play ping pong too”.

Heaviest bee suit world record – in pictures | World news | guardian.co.uk.
In true western reporting of China. Another wacky story.
To the undiscerning reader it might appear that China only has two types of stories: Human Rights abuses or men covering themselves in bees. Perhaps this is a mixture of the two stories. . . .
