If you’re a parent of a young child, this video may look all too familiar:

The zookeeper seems amused at first, but by the end of the video she is panting and yelling, doing everything in her power to keep these rambunctious cubs under control. She finally gets her work done, but she does not seem too pleased as she walks away.

To paraphrase the Yiddish proverb: Man makes plans, pandas play.

God made every kind of wild animal, every kind of tame animal, and every kind of thing that crawls on the ground. God saw that it was good. (Gen 1:25)
