The subject of this article is Bungie Lore; one of the many myths, legends, and easter eggs that have been created by Bungie.

Ling-Ling is Bungie Studios' dog. Only it's not so much a dog, but a dog's head. It's contained in a jar of formaldehyde. The dog's head was once lost, (see picture to the right) but it has now been found, and is kept somewhere inside Bungie's Offices.

"Dog's head in a jar. Has mystical significance. But it's too nasty to think about. Especially if you think about opening the jar, and drinking the head-water down in one mighty draft. DANGER! Do not juxtapose Tijuana Mama with Ling Ling! When the jar containing Ling-Ling finally breaks, as it must, Bungie will make a sequel to Gnop!"

Recovering Ling-Ling's head is Step 5 in Bungie's 7-Step Plan for World Domination, and it is currently listed as completed. Also 'when Ling-Ling's jar is broken, Owt Gnop! will be made', referring to the sequel to Bungie's first ever game, Gnop! Ling-Ling's jar has not been broken.
