Late one night, myself and a friend were watching the news. There was a story about how in China, the government was taking steps to attempt to replentish the population of pandas. So they go to a shot of some serious looking news reporter, and he says, "Chinese scientists have implanted the fetus of a panda into the womb of a cat. The cat soon died." Those words, combined with the seriousness of the reporter, provided me with days worth of laughter. More recently I saw a thing on the news about how they had succeeded in getting pandas to mate by showing them video footage of pandas in the act. This story brings hope for the pandas, but the first story doesn't seem to say much for Chinese scientists.
