No Sex, please, we're Pandas

To mark their 28th anniversary, official at Thailand's Chiang Mai Zoo held a traditional Chinese wedding ceremony for their two giant pandas.

"Start making children soon, don't let me down," pleaded visiting Chinese Consul Peng Ren Dong. Whether the two pandas get down to breeding anytime soon is entirely their own affair, but zoo officials are hoping for the best.

But the zoo is also sensitive to the opinions of the general public. Not wanting to offend the more conservative members of the local community ("who think that marrying animals is undignified"), the zoo dubbed this week's ceremony as the "Happiness and Fun Fair."

Hey, dress it up in festive red ribbons, dragon decorations and elaborate tea ceremonies, but the whole purpose of the event comes down to simple sex. Go to it, you crazy pandas!
