    So i guess the casino part was real?
     
  5. No... the Pandas are real. See, the April Fools part is getting you to believe that the Kung Fu Pandas was just a joke.

    That's an automatic thing.
    The posts are picked up from the UOHerald RSS feed. Such feeds typically use an abstract or a summary (or often, just a truncation of the first post), and a link to the full article.
    If the summary is the same as the full article, there's no easy way to determine it :(

    When they pull off an April Fool's joke based on Pandas and it's totally believable that they would actually seriously consider it

    I'm pretty sure panda bears are in the common domain.
