Seeing as it is the opening of the latest (and last) installment of the Star Wars saga, I thought this photo was very appropriate:

Lesser Panda

A character out of the original cantina scene in the first Star Wars movie, right? Or a guy in a kind of iffy raccoon suit?

No, it's a 15 pound "Lesser Panda" at a zoo near Tokyo. Apparently the two-year-old male panda named Futa stands up several times a day when he sees something "interesting." He's developed quite a fan club.

[I still think it's a guy in a raccoon suit.]

Quote du jour:

"If the cut of the costume indicates intellect and talent, then the color indicates temper and heart."

-- Thomas Carlyle (1795 - 1881) Scottish essayist, historian
