butterstick hits the bigtime?

Some DCist commenters are saying that Miles O'Brien mentioned Butterstick by name on CNN this morning — but the official panda-related video and transcript don't offer confirmation. Personally, I suspect a coverup.

You should still watch the video though — the cub is pretty goddamn adorable, whatever its name.

I have to say, I'm a little surprised that they decided to name him after a Detroit Piston.

See this? A challenger to the Butterstick empire?

well, I'm not sure it did. It might have just been a mention of the "stick of butter" description that someone misinterpreted in a fit of enthusiasm.
