A big old pudgy panda bear walked into McDonald's one day. Ordered a Big Mac, fries and a Coke, and ate it all right away. He paid his bill at the counter, then with a great big grin he pulled out a big water pistol and shot the cashier in the chin. He sauntered out to the sidewalk; the cashier followed him there. Drying his face he said, "Why'd you do that? It wasn't really fair." "In the encyclopedia, friend, the answer can be found," the panda said, and then he left, saying, "Well, I'll see ya around." The cashier looked it up that night. What he saw he couldn't believe. The encyclopedia said, "Panda—eats shoots and leaves."
