stick it to 'em
I'm very happy to see that Chrisafer, John and Michael are campaigning for DC's new panda to be permanently called "butterstick", a name originally conceived in this very apartment, and then forced on an unsuspecting world via DCist. Okay, it's not exactly an artifact of astounding creative genius. But cmon, it's catchy. And check it out: Michael's even gotten the Mandarin script for it
Alright, so the trailing "stick" after it on his blog makes me wonder if maybe that isn't just the Mandarin for "butter". Nevertheless! We've got a graphic, which means that soon CafePress will be disgorging butterstick promotional gear by the truckload.
Bloggers: do you need an exciting meme to fill that blank, taunting blogspot page?
Tattoo enthusiasts: are you looking for another bad idea to immortalize?
People with a totally humorless respect for Chinese culture: want something to get upset about?
Then come on! Butterstick: it's catching.
Besides, if we don't act now you know we'll end up with a bear named "1000 Blessings of the Wind" or some bullshit.
