No word from the FONZ...

...or "Friends of the National Zoo" yet. They must be busy trying to count up all the votes between "China Washington magnificent" (Hua Sheng) and "Washington China magnificent" (Sheng Hua).

In the meantime, to occupy the hours whiled away while waiting for some zoologists' dry appeal to my sense of reason and propriety (stops to snort Fat Tire Ale through his nostrils in laughter), here are the top 10 Star Wars names that would also make good names for the new baby panda. Translations are included of course.

The top 10 Star Wars Names that Would Also Make Good Names for The New Baby Panda (who would otherwise be named in the manner of a sailboat). (Translations from the Star Wars-ese included)

by George Lucas (as told to Earl Fando and millions of other movie goers)

10. Qui-Gon Jinn (Moo Goo Gai Pan, magnificent)

9. Han Solo (Indiana Jones, Box-Office, magnificent)

8. Yoda (China, Washington, magnificent... Hey, what a coincidence!)

7. Darth Sidious (Obvious, Palpatine, magnificent)

6. Chaka (Editor's note: Apologies, as this is actually from TV's Land of the Lost, albeit it is rumoured to have been Lucas' first choice for the name of Chewbacca, followed by "Mork" and "Alf".)

5. Boba Fett (Round, monochromatic, magnificent)

4. Jabba the Hut (Pizza Hut, magnificent...Who knew there was a commercial tie-in there?)

3. C3PO (fussy, effeminate, magnificent)

2. Greedo (Copycat, Zoo Contest, Big Bucks, magnificent)

1. Jar Jar Binks (embarassing, disgraceful, magnificent)
