Once again, we predict reality on Fabulous Furry Friday.

It was bound to happen, sooner or later! As you may recall, we launched the idea of a panda clan tartan a full two weeks before the Edinburgh Zoo announced that they had commissioned one.

And now, British Airways has painted one of their jets just like the one that I drew more than 4 years ago, for PandAir Airlines, the only airline run by and for pandas. How do you like them cuppycakes?

...and most of all, don't panic.

see, doesn't this look just like British Airways' new paint job?

I rest my case.

I rest my case.

You’ll notice the older, less polished style (and very poor image clean-up skills, I might add) of the cartoon, which makes my point, I said it first.  Really, all these corporate entities should check with me before they launch these things!

Well, till next week, when we predict the next trend in panda themed promotions,

Be the Bear!

          Needless to say, I am reassured and relieved that it will be safe to walk outside with you and the X-Man piloting planes. Um…do you think you could get those other pandas grounded? It would be your gift to humanity. And pandas, of course.
