If you had to grade a panda bear's efforts as an animal, would you give it an "F"? The authors of the Animal Review Blog, a very funny and very sarcastic blog--now a book--had no qualms about flunking pandas for occupying "valuable zoo space while bringing little to the table." Apparently cute doesn't cut it for them.
Take a 3-minute vacation from political correctness (consider yourself warned!) and see which animals really are in contention for king of the jungle. (The panda's report card can be found on May 4, 2008.)
And we can't help but like this quote from Kung Fu Panda, said by Po-the-panda's father, a revered noodle maker: "We are noodle folk. Broth runs through our veins."
