Panda eats, shoots and leaves

10 March 2011, Thursday

A panda walks into a cafe. He orders a sandwich, eats it, then draws a gun and fires two shots in the air.

"Why?" asks the confused and bewildered waiter, as the panda makes towards the exit. The panda produces a badly punctuated wildlife manual and tosses it over his shoulder.

"I'm a panda," he says, at the door. "Look it up."

The waiter turns to the relevant entry, and sure enough, finds an explanation.
"Panda. Large black-and-white bear-like mammal, native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.

So, PUNCTUATION really does matter, even if it is only occasionally a matter of life and death!!! eats shoots and leaves....
