And Today's Curious Story ...

Well, after exposing you to the gloomy news of the latest celebrity divorce and its ties to cult life, I thought I should probably offer up something that might put a smile on your faces, albeit one that comes with a serious underlying message.
Had you been in Charing Cross yesterday you would have seen 108 pandas, or rather, 108 people dressed up as pandas. This wasn't a bizarre stag-do gone wrong but rather a publicity stunt to raise awareness of the plight of the endangered species.
As serious an issue as it is, I can't help but love the photographs on the Daily Mail's website. I particularly like the panda on the escalator, paws crossed, head down as he/ she contemplates the day ahead. All that was missing for the full twee effect was a briefcase:

Perhaps the funniest photos are of the sombre commuters doing their sterling best to ignore them. I suppose you get used to seeing such things if you live or work in London.
