PANDEMONIUM

Pandas -- they're not just cute, they can sharpen and shred!

The giant bears are cuddly favorites among zoogoers, but this Ling Wong Shredder and Sharpener ($11.99, ModCloth.com) proves they can be multitalented.

The dual pencil sharpener/paper shredder was inspired by the fictional panda made famous in "Anchorman."

The shredder isn't large (running through the panda's middle portion), but it's big enough for receipts, or larger papers that have already been cut down. The pencil sharpener is a bit old school in that you have to wind it up to sharpen.

QUOTE OF THE DAY

"The same week we were shooting this, I was becoming an aunt for the first time. I was calling [my sister Emily] all the time asking, 'Pam is five centimeters dilated; what should she be acting like?'"

-- Jenna Fischer, on filming the delivery scenes on "The Office," in People magazine
