*UPDATE* – Pandas

This weekend marks the release of the animated movie Kung Fu Panda, and if early reviews are any indication, Ailuropoda melanoleuca (see Pandas, 4 May) yet again proves to have a truly excellent publicist.

The utter balderdash of the movie’s plot – wherein a panda does something other than not mate and learns a martial art – is not so much inspirational as it is insulting to bears who would have been well-cast in a movie about tough bears. Kung Fu Kodiak, anyone?

Please do not go see this movie or allow children – whether yours or those of strangers – to see it. It will only lengthen the panda’s already overextended stay on Planet Earth.

  1. Kung Fu Kodiak, I’ve already pitched it to Paramount.
