i know. pandalust is a huge turn-on. but seriously- i would totally forgo the 4 collies for 16 panda babies instead.

Meggie said...

OOh, i want one!! Or three!!! They are sooooo cute!!!!

Linda said...

except before scrolling down, I thought the first picture was a bunch of people holding two soccer balls each.

oline said...

lindear darling, i think it's time we get you glasses.

Linda said...

shhh....

Meggie said...

Have you played WiiFit yet? So, there is a soccer ball game where you have to head the balls but they will also randomly kick panda bear heads at you to throw you off...

oline said...

"have you played wiifit yet?"

wow. do you know me meggie dear?

Meggie said...

Carolina... Dude. It is fun. I enjoy it. I mainly enjoy watching people do it 'cause they always look hilarious.

Meanwhile, I am on day 4 of no a/c in the middle of July in TN. Lord help me, they aren't coming until Monday.

i'm with linda in mistaking them for soccer balls (and, I have glasses). for a second, i thought your calling had something to do with taking pictures of geriatric sports leagues. at first glance, all i saw was a bunch of old white people happy to be in uniforms and with balls, looking like some tylenol advertisement. but, it wasn't until i scrolled down further that i was even more confused when i saw panda pics mixed in. then, it hit me a little later. i felt dumb, but justified upon reading linda's confession.

and, for meggie... good call on the panda soccer balls. sometimes i hit them so they make that adorable squeaking noise (but, dammit those points they deduct!!). happy one year anniversary!!!!!

"old white people happy to be in uniforms and with balls"

best. quote. ever.

oline said...

i would like to note that they are all chinese.

Linda said...

shhh....

s.h.e. said...

right, they're asian... but, at first i didn't notice. THAT's why i felt dumb, among other things... stupid steven!

Meggie said...

I was thinking those old people were Asian and not white...

So happy to find that Steven also enjoys the WiiFit. The best is the sound the soccer cleats make when they hit you in the head. THUNK!

i just noticed how sad that panda in the bottom picture looks.

Les Savy Ferd said...

well, he HAS been put in tupperware. that can't be good for his self esteem.

oline said...

i was practically raised in tupperware and i turned out just fine.

s.h.e. said...

speaking of living in tupperware, does anyone remember the old show, "eerie, indiana"? there was this one episode about a family who had been around since the 50s, but never aged. turned out, they were sealing tucking themselves into their tupperware beds every night. when the beds were removed, everyone in the family quickly grew into their actual ages. very freaky. very disturbing. no wonder the show got canceled.

oline said...

no, but i remember tupperware parties. back in the days when tupperware was a glamourous rarity and not free with every purchase of carl budding sandwich meat.

Les Savy Ferd said...

Tupperware, TN? or Tupperware, VA?

(you wouldn't catch me dead in that backwater Virginia town, s'all I'm saying.)

oline said...

what's this bias against tupperware, virginia. i hear they've got swamps, like you know where...

Les Savy Ferd said...

doggone it, that panda pile up in aisle (or rather, picture) #2 is freaking adorable.

also, as is well documented by numerous Olines, I am completely misinformed about the natural topography of The South. All future comments on my behalf regarding The South should be taken, at best, as mild provocation and at worst as the thoughts of mentally unbalanced yankee.

oline said...

do we need to have you committed, dougO? more importantly, do we need to have my father come detail all the architectural fine points of the upstate aslyums in which you might be institutionalized?

Les Savy Ferd said...

at the very least.
