The latest news out of Taiwan seems to suggest that maybe Men’s Rights activists are right about the wily female and her endless demands for stuff.
In Taipei, one famous female was recently discovered to be faking a pregnancy in what appears to have been a transparent ploy for attention, round-the-clock pampering, and delicious bamboo.
Ok, it was a panda.
Hopes that another panda cub would soon be born in Taiwan were dashed when experts determined that signs of pregnancy displayed by a giant panda at Taipei Zoo appear to have been faked by the animal in order to secure better conditions during the summer.
According to the article,
Pandas thought to be pregnant are moved into single rooms with air conditioning and round-the-clock care and also receive more fruits and bamboo.
Experts believe clever pandas display behavior similar to pregnancy to improve their quality of life after noticing the difference in treatment they receive.
Apparently this panda went a bit further than most. The article reports that the panda in question, a lovely lass named Yuan Yuan,
had shown signs of pregnancy such as loss of appetite, thickening of the uterus and increased fecal progesterone concentration.
Uh, how exactly would one go about faking “thickening of the uterus” or “increased fecal progesterone concentration?” The article doesn’t say.
Females sure are mysterious creatures, huh?
Mysterious and evil.
