Cannot resist the cute

.... even if it comes from a business journal:
Knut Mania Sweeps the Globe
The polar bear cub has brought plenty of attention—along with some lucrative deals—to the Berlin Zoo. But his cute days are numbered
Of course there's a slideshow so cute, I now need insulin injections. But I'm posting this, really, because of the puns in the article, such as the mention of a new version of the " famous Italian chocolate-and-hazelnut spread, rechristened 'Knutella.'"

Alas, Knut is growing up, and soon he'll weigh several hundred kilograms, and creatures that large are rarely considered "cute." At which point, he'll have to make the transition that all child stars since Shirley Temple have had to face, and become a serious, er, polar bear. Well, you know.

Perhaps this is a cue to scientists to try to breed polar bears that never get large, like what has happened with those cats that stay small as kittens. Or, not.
