We at Way Better Than Working Inc. have been avidly reading The Way of the Panda, and so have been inspired to make our own, unique (some would say irreverent and sophomoric) comment on PANDAS IN HISTORY. I know, I know, the use of all cap. bold font is incredibly melodramatic and pretentious, but hey, that’s the way we do things around WBTW. Ruth Harkness and Su-lin were real people (and pandas) from panda history. I first read of her in Vicki Croke’s MOST excellent book, The Lady and the Panda. We plan to do lots of reading about pandas, thanks to Henry Nicholls thorough reading list in T W of the P. Oh dear, we are sort of getting serious and academic here and that is certainly NOT how we usually do things around here. Have no fear! we will take Vicki and Henry’s fascinating research and turn it to our own nefarious and satirical purposes.
Be the Bear!
