Butterball!?! Too perfect!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:13 AM


It's *adorable*!

we here in DC call him butterstick, as in, "at birth, he was the size of a stick of butter."

AWWWW! Totally awesome, circle of life... at it's best. VERY cute!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:14 AM

Un-frickin-believably cute. I especially love the Day 25 fuzziness, but still able to see the skin underneath!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:15 AM




That is unbelievably cute!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:17 AM


I just 'sploded at work.


Clean up in the director's office....

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:19 AM

had to use my hand to close mouth...


 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:21 AM

day 2 - its eyes aren't even *formed* yet!
that is friggin miraculous!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:21 AM

That's not Butterstick/Tai Shan. Those are screencaps from the HD program "Panda Nursery" and that is one (or perhaps both) of the two cubs born at the Wolong Natural Reservation Park.


 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:22 AM

I sort of just almost died. It was the day 35 grin that did me in...

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:24 AM

Oooooooh no!! Ooooohh no! This is just too much.

Day 25 encore, a tiny hug and teeny smile. Day 35 and the tongue! Awwww!! AWWWWWWWW!!!!


 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:26 AM


 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:30 AM

plz note day 35's 1 paws up, toes facing each other, tongue out, with softest of fuzzles on sqeeable belleh.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:32 AM

Wow. WOW! That's incredible. Day 85 cracks me up. He's all "Yo! I'm gettin' there (with the help of this soft thing that props me up)!"

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:34 AM

Ah, I saw someone already posted it, but yeah, it's one of the pandas from the show "Panda Nursery" that I watched on Discovery HD the other day. They're so ugly when they're born, lol.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:34 AM

Hehehe whatever its name...How Totally awsome is that. toooo cute.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:38 AM

OMG...so cute...I was all "OMG! IT's a PANDA!"

People in my office think i'm nuts.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:40 AM

Not ugly, not ugly!

*sneaks in to steal baby panda at day 1 not even knowing what it is, puts in pocket, stealthily finds a quite spot to snorgle the fuzzy pink babeh for 2 mins, then reluctantly sneaks him back - sigh*

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:43 AM

Butterball! How Perfect! I love pandas.

Shut the F up. How did I live without this website?

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:49 AM

Oh WOW. That actually made me teary. Awww...

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:50 AM

I actually gasped out loud on day 25 when I saw it was a Panda! (previously I had been guessing, polar bear? without thinking about the fact that bebeh polar bears are *much* larger!) Anyway it's wonderful. Thanks for the photos! Love him!

I am hyperventilating..

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 10:59 AM

The day 25 spooning of the wee little pillow. That one KEEELED me. He's prosh, he's fuzzy and he spoons....

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:00 AM

this totally makes up for the re-donk earlier.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:00 AM

OMG THEO THE HOVER TEXT. hehehe. Might I suggest for Pic One "Ouch that was my belly button".

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:01 AM

Stop him before he kills again!

Wonder how pan-pan would configure himself into an 8...NOT CLEAR!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:04 AM

Isn't this the same place as the http://mfrost.typepad.com/cute_overload/2006/03/panda_central.html playpen?

I love the day 25 where he's smiling and curled up around his stuffed surrogate-mom toy.

That and day 85. He's got this "Whassup my peepz!" grin.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:16 AM

First, the D.C. panda who resides up the street from me is ButterSTICK, not Butterball. The panda is long and skinny, not ball-shaped, so Butterball would make NO sense whatsoever.
Secondly, that is not Butterstick.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:16 AM

annie - i called my sister 10 hours away from me and made her check out this little guy, just so i could hear her laugh at the hysterical hover text. makes it 1 million times cuter than it already is.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:16 AM


where can I order it?

toooo cute

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:22 AM


I lurves it!!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:25 AM

i just vomited a rainbow and died. ~thud~

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:29 AM

Eliottsmommy: I know I am still cracking up. and Theo should take a bow, but he must be busy at his real job right now.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 11:35 AM

I guess I'm in the minority for preferring the last couple of pics... but then I don't like human young until they can hold a halfway intelligible conversation.

You can't hear the soundtrack, but infant pandas and bear cubs (the ones I've heard) make a noise like a wet finger being rubbed across a balloon. You either pick the baby up quick to make it stop, or you run away holding your ears.

I wish Ling-Ling had been able to give us some babies that survived. She did her best, poor old bear, cradling apples as practice.... Hsing was sweeter and less grouchy, though.

I was in some of Ling's pregnancy watches at the National Zoo. One day, bored while she was napping, I browsed through some checksheets the earlier volunteers had done. One person on a 1-4 AM shift recorded 180 solid minutes of sleep. At the bottom, he wrote, "At 3:26 AM, Ling suddenly got up, strode over to microphone #2, and began doing a South Pacific number-- 'Gonna Wash That Man Right Outa My Hair'-- complete with fancy footwork. She then sat down and went back to sleep so fast that I couldn't record it on the video." To this day I wonder if that guy was so blitzed after having to watch a panda sleep from 1 AM to 3:26 AM that he thinks he really did see that....

Thank goodness you eased us up to day 120. If you went from day 01 or 02 to 120 in just two shots, my head would've exploded.

Imagine the little panda pinky laying there. Then, just out of nowhere, POOF! fuzzy and beady-eyed! Oh, it would've killed me, I just know it.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 12:01 PM

GAH! The wee toesies...the grin...the fuzzitude...GAH!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 12:39 PM

Beebee Pandee for Meeeeeee!!!!!!!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 12:41 PM

ah! i saw this little guy on "panda nursery" on the discovery HD channel! so cute! if you want more check out that show.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 12:48 PM

The.Freakin. hover.text. And Theo, for some reason me thinks it should be bamboobular, because it is funnier. At least to me. I'm like whatsherface from the movie Raisin Arizona, I need one of them pandas! To cuddle!
Oh and this is for Tina Rhea, who doesn't like babies:

[this post was 100% Meg, CBF... and while it's an excellent word, "bamboobular" sounds to me more like... um... well, one of the other CO categories - Ed.]

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 12:49 PM

Thank you a million, billion times for this submission!! Wonderful!!!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 12:59 PM

oooh! squeal! squeal! tingling with warm happy lovies inside! i am compelled to pick up my ki-ki kat and SnUgGLe her out of sheer insperartion and dee-light! babies, no matter what they are..ArE dELiCiOuSlY AdOrAbLe!!! :)

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 01:06 PM

(can't breathe. hurts. too much laughter.)
How did I live before C.O.?
Did I actually work the first half hour of the day?
On a completely related subject, Did anyone else check out the ear to head ratio of day 2?

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 01:11 PM

Thanks Tina, I was in the midst of drinking and now I've hurt myself.

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 01:19 PM

What a wonderful set of photos...a great panda fix for the day!

 |  Jun 14, 2007 at 01:21 PM

I think you're thinking of ButterSTICK, not ButterBALL. Tai Shan is mah homeboy! But yeah, this isn't Tai Shan...although I could send you at least 851 C.O.-worthy photos of him...
