Terrible News: Baby Pandas Will Not Be Predicting The World Cup

You’re breaking my heart! Just weeks after a panda conservation center announced that pandas would predict the results of the 2014 World Cup a la Paul the octopus, today we learn the plan is no more. Three baby pandas reportedly would have predicted the winner based on which country’s flag was tied to food they gravitated towards. But now, the Chengdu Panda Preservation Center in Sichuan province says the publicity stunt has been “halted by the authorities.” Shit. This is the only thing that actually made me care about the World Cup. [South China Morning Post, BBC]
