Giant Panda Cub Gets Named And Its A True 'Little Miracle'

We've an update about one of the most positive stories to come out of 2020, and the update is just as wholesome as the original story. The (tiny) giant panda cub that was born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo three weeks ago has finally gotten a name, and it is the most appropriate and cutest name of all. Xiao Qi Ji is his name in Chinese, but it translates to 'little miracle' in English. 

The little giant panda has gone absolutely viral in the past couple of weeks after a video of his miraculous birth was released by the zoo, and since the world fell in love with the cub, the zoo decided to let the world participate in naming him. Of course, the internet does not disappoint when it comes to baby animals. 

We were given a choice of 4 names, and after three weeks and nearly 135,000 votes that have been cast, the adorable name 'little miracle' was chosen. The long waiting period was not an accident, it is part of Chinese tradition to wait 100 days before naming the cub. We wish the little cub luck and prosperity, and for his mother, Mei Xiang, to have many more adorable healthy cubs in the future!

Advertisement of the Day: This Subway Ad Looks Like Something Out of Mad Max

Suddenly, Black Mirror doesn't seem so crazy.

We get a little bit closer to that dystopian future of our dreams everyday, and sometimes an advertisement notices how close we are.

A subway billboard in Beijing has done just that.

The advertisement is for a sports haze mask and features a female running with a face mask that looks like a souvenir from Fury Road. A sports haze mask is for people attempting to exercise in heavy smog areas, like Beijing.

Twitter reacted, as it's wont to do, welcoming the new oncoming dystopia.

Oh Internet, how we loathe you sometimes.

Millions were disappointed after gullibly falling for an fake story indicating that "Harambe McHarambeface" won the naming contest for a baby gorilla at a Chinese zoo.

It all started when the crap-tacular Daily Mirror--who never checks the legitimacy of their sources--decided to pick up the story. The "source" was the fictitional "Boston Leader" news website, and the internet ran with it from there:






The truth quickly came out and hearts were broken everywhere...





...and though we might not have a Harambe McHarambeface YET, you can still show your support and buy your "McHarambeface" t-shirt here:

The latest social media "beauty trend" in China is making sure your knees are able to be covered by your iPhone 6.  Apparently this proves that you're "skinny" enough? 



It's pretty common on Chinese social media for "proof of beauty" memes to cycle around. Others have included putting coins in your collarbone, holding a pen under your breast and more recently, making sure your waist is completely hidden behind an A4 sized piece of paper.  These are a lot of standards to meet for one person... now apparently your kneecaps need to be small too?

This is one of those stories where you don't know if you should feel sad or grossed out.

A man in China has married a realistic sex doll because he has terminal cancer and wants to feel the joy of marriage without leaving behind a grieving widow.

The 28-year-old man has not yet been identified, but some are suggesting this could all just be a marketing stunt.

Nevertheless, the (happy?) couple had one beautiful wedding photo shoot...

We wish the couple much happiness. And the man many nights of fapping.
