Q: What’s black and white and doesn’t have to go back to China for 5 more years?

A: Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, the Giant Pandas at the National Zoo.

I know. It’s the best riddle you’ve ever heard.

The two pandas will stay in DC until December 2015-a good deal for the Zoo, as the 10-year lease signed in 2000 expired in December of last year. So worry not, the National Zoo’s most famous residents will be with us for several more years. You should go say “hi.”

Or “Ni hao,”depending on whether they’ve learned English or not.
