TBH, I don’t know if red pandas are really this fiesty, but I like to imagine that they are. They provide a wonderful counterpart to the (relative) calmness of giant pandas (except where Pinky is concerned). I really need to get into the Woodland Park Zoo and see the new kids on the block (and maybe demonstrate for WOOZPPAH a little bit.)
Why don’t you tell us what you really think, Rusty?
And speaking of WOOZPPAH, if Howard Schultz wanted to do something worthwhile with his money, he could endow the Starbucks Panda Pavillion at Woodland Park Zoo. He won’t, but it might make me like him just a little bit.

Considering that both Giant and Red pandas were thought to be relatives of raccoons for a long time, I think both of them have an ax to grind. Silly humans.
Silly humans indeed.
ole rich Howard could fund a panda exhibit at the Columbus, Cincinnati or Cleveland Zoos! Huzzah! Rusty is not alone with his escape! There have been a couple other Red Pandas who have escaped. Two young ones at the Seattle Zoo and one at the Belfast Zoo. Little escape artists!
Right??? There are far better things that Howard could do with his money than run for president. He really is a Democrat. He just wants all the attention. I am reminded of one of the bowling ally scenes from The Big Leibowski (my all time favorite movie, which has a quote for everything) when Walter says to Donnie: You’re out of your depth, Donnie. You have no frame of reference. You’re like a little child who wanders in to the middle of a conversation.”
“Shut the f**k up, Howard.”
Also, when Rachel Maddow was talking about where all the excessive money for 45’s inauguration went, the line, “Where’s the money Leibowski?????” sprang into my mind.
I’m loving the red pandas. They were the first pandas I fell in love with 🙂 Go Rusty!
I love Rusty! He is so…um…outspoken! He is a spokes panda for red pandas everywhere!
