Backyard Petting Zoo* on Steroids
by cl. panic, the Dr. Doolittle of Guest Bloggers

The other weekend I made a trip down to San Diego, which is apparently known for having a quaint little zoo. My favorite adult associate and I signed up for an annual membership. And since that means I now own a little piece of the zoo, I get to call it my backyard.

Holy crap, is it a big backyard! Complete with tour buses and a sky tram (just like Michael Jackson's backyard)! But not even Mr. Jackson can compete with the sheer number of animals that the world famous San Diego Zoo has amassed.

While you might be able to see a dik dik in Mr. Jackson's backyard, good luck finding a takin.


The most entertaining part of the visit was watching the swamp monkeys play with spotted neck otters. Shenanigans all around!
We also saw Mr. Nonny Nu. Who knew he loved carrots so much? I always thought he was more of a "baby seal" eater.
We waited in line to see the panda. It just sat there eating bamboo. No lessons about sexual harassment, no playful behavior, not even any eye contact with the enamored crowd. MMD IMHO. Since the zoo has to pay China $1 million a year for having the panda, you'd think it could at least do some tricks or something...

Oh well, there's still a lot to see. Good thing we got a pass, because you really can't see everything in a day. It's that big!

* Note: You cannot pet the animals.

Our diets have merged after over 13 years knowing each other (8 of them married). If you would have walked around that rock, you would have seen me.

ABSOLUTELY WONDER USE OF "MMD."

But, about the panda, I also hate them. They are so not cute. I don't know why you gweilos are so interested in them. All of us Chinese people are loao at you guys making googlyeyes at these boring wastes of space. The last time I went to the San Diego Zoo, I went with Ca Loc, and we BOTH agreed to say "no thanks" to the panda exhibit.

Well, at least 2 hours have passed without Michael Jackson commenting to complain about all of the outrageous blogs...

Well, if only she'd comment and come up with some pseudonym.

Besides, that's what the zoo calls it. You can sign up with an adult associate... that way you don't alienate any alternative living or family arrangements.

AAA does the same thing.

I have met your FAA a couple of times now, and I never took her for the shy type. I mean, it's hard not to call attention to herself with a lampshade on her head at the Nu, Nu, & Nu LLP Christmas dinner.

Maybe she'll show up and "correct" me.

P.S. Mr. Nonny Nu looks hot.
