knut is so yesterday

meet flocke, the latest polar bear cub to wow germans and their visitors. the nuremberg zoo recently unveiled this cutie, along with a mass of chatchke souvenirs available immediately to the public. flocke is adorable, but some people are not so happy about her debut:

as the signs say, 'i'm a polar bear, get me out of here!' and, 'if only you would see it from my point of view - the climate here does not suit me!"

when knut grew out of being cute, through no fault of his own, he became too big and dangerous to play with. he is now rather lonely, and possibly in withdrawal from an addiction to the attention of fame. what will become of flocke in the future?
