This Chinese Zoo Will Pay YOU To Cuddle Pandas

Share on Facebook

Everyone (and I mean everyone) loves pandas. They’re giant, cuddly creatures, but they can also be very temperamental to the point of being difficult.

In an effort to help panda cubs live without humans, a zoo in China is enlisting lucky volunteers to dress up in giant panda costumes and cuddle with the black and white critters. If that sounds ridiculous to you…it is.

Check out the adorably weird pictures below.

Does it look about as amazing as you pictured it would? It’s not fooling us, but these pandas are none the wiser.

Can you blame them? Who wouldn’t want to get paid to cuddle panda cubs all day?

Seemingly everyone has volunteered for the position, and, as you might imagine, there aren’t a whole lot of positions to fill.

Unfortunately for Mr. Paisley Panda, Scotland is a far cry from China. So unless he’s planning on racking up frequent flier miles, he’s probably out of luck.

That’s a little terrifying, and perhaps over-eager. But you have to admire their enthusiasm. I mean, “Dress for the job you want,” right?

Because we all know the Internet’s favorite thing is memes. Well, maybe next to pandas. OK. It’s a tie.

And how do you wash the panda suit? Will the dry cleaners give you a funny look when you drop it off?

His suit wasn’t quite right. He get’s an “A” for effort though. They should keep his resume on file in case something opens up in the Tiger Department.

We can’t all be as lucky as panda cubs unfortunately.

The Simpsons predicted it first.
