Panda Safe After High-Stakes Tree Rescue
by Scott Friedstein, FluffPo Correspondent
According to sources, Ming the panda is safe on the ground this morning after becoming trapped in a tire swing at least three feet from the ground. Witnesses tell The Fluffington Post that her brother, Bao Lao, quickly assessed the situation and sprung into action.
"She’s in that tire swing all the time," says Richard Beck. "I knew she was eventually going to get stuck in it. It’s a good thing Bao Lao was around, because I definitely wasn’t going up there."
The three-year-old panda was shaken, but quickly returned to her normal panda activities.
"She went to sleep," says Beck. "I don’t blame her, though - I’d be exhausted too if that happened to me."

The other boys have actually turned up to do the same thing, because great minds think alike.
TRUE STORY: THIS IS ACTUALLY MY FAVORITE MOMENT IN THE ENTIRE BEHIND THE SCENES VIDEO, because on my first viewing [first SEVERAL viewings] of the commercial, it genuinely did not occur to me that they were supposed to be RIVAL THIEVES AFTER THE SAME PRIZE. “Very in character,” I said. “They would make an absolutely useless heist team,” I said. “This is an accurate depiction of how easily sidetracked they would be by their own need to cause shenanigans,” I said. “In art, as in life, Liam participates in these shenanigans but is also the one to finally pull it together and get shit done,” I said.
And then someone somewhere mentioned that they were RIVALS, not a TEAM, and I realized that YES, THAT IS ACTUALLY WHAT IS SUPPOSED TO BE HAPPENING: THEY ARE NOT FRIENDS WITH AN INABILITY TO FOCUS ON THE TASK AT HAND, THEY ARE ADVERSARIES WITH A KINDERGARTEN-LEVEL UNDERSTANDING OF HOW TO SABOTAGE SOMEONE. And it doesn’t KEEP ME UP AT NIGHT or anything, but it’s bugged me ever since, which is why it was A JOY AND A DELIGHT AND A REVELATION to hear Zayn describe it this way, to know that Zayn “those aren’t nice compliments” Malik has ALSO thought about how it’s weird that they’re being framed as OPPONENTS instead of BROTHERS, and the way he resolved this bit of cognitive dissonance was by framing it this way: they all ended up in the same place at the same time after the same bottle of cheap perfume because GREAT MINDS THINK ALIKE.
"GREAT MINDS" IS A LITTLE GENEROUS, LBR, BUT I’LL TAKE IT.
i truly believe elephants are too good for this shitty world
Protesters from across St Louis turned up and turned out for the first St Louis County Council Meeting since Mike Brown’s Death. (Part I)
The St Louis County Council wasn’t as bad as Ferguson’s Council, but still very few answers and virtually no accountability from the folks who unleashed unholy hell on the residents of Ferguson, following Brown’s murder. #staywoke #farfromover
