Update: Tai Shan is not Butterstick.

I love the Baby Giant Panda,
I’d welcome one to my veranda.
I never worry, wondering maybe
Whether it isn’t Giant Baby;
I leave such matters to the scientists–
The Giant Baby- and Baby Giantists.
I simply want a veranda, and a
Giant Baby Giant Panda.

My vote was always for “Bling-Bling.”

Tai Shan is not Butterstick ...

It is, however, a song by Rush.

Please refer to my comment in DCist's entry. "Tai Shan" is quite close to the name of a Filipino spongy butter-based cake snack shaped just like a butter stick.

Ditto. That has and shall remain the name we use in our household conversations. It is just too perfect for a DC panda.

Fuck it. I'll call the damn panda whatever I want.

It's strange that they'd name a panda after the Dark One.

If Jesus is smart, he return as a baby panda.
