Hopefully unlike that other Steve, Steve McQueen on his motorcycle in that famous movie The Great Escape, I hope Professor Steve Steve’s friend on his motorcycle gets further.

Professor Steve Steve: still the coolest panda I know.

What they should do now is run that test on a few dozen undergraduates – lock them in the room for an hour with a water faucet but no tools and see if they can get the peanut out…

(someone may have taught the orang the trick of course)

Okay. Now I want to see them get out of the conspicuous black and whites.

(Ha! Fat chance; seems they haven’t given up their face masks yet.)

Btw, was it my imagination or was the other bear helping the escapee reach the opening?

Not to mention that after the fact it appeared to sit there staring toward the camera with an “innocent” expression - “what, who me?”. :lol:

Well, now that video’s not available either. Some dingus with a stick where the son don’t shine has been going around insisting that all copies of the video be removed, because he was the original uploader and wants it to be private (that is, viewed by invitation only). What a dink.

That video is also no longer available.

Sigh. The pandas were real cute!
