A Brief History of Red Pandas

Animalfact_redpanda_medium

Consider this FanPost a contribution to the ongoing collective autobiography of DBB, in the spirit of Rob G's excellent tribute to coachDP.

I introduced the red panda to DBB in this thread, shortly after midnight on September 26.

Originally, my intent was to post a picture of an adorable animal, like the lolcats that many DBBers use to express derision. See this exchange moments later, where I replied to brgulker with a baby red panda.

However, I soon realized that the average red panda is twice as cute as a cat, and that certain exceptional red pandas can be up to four times cuter than even the cutest kitten. I had stumbled upon a meme with amazing power! What better way to dismiss a tired idea, shoot down an awful trade proposal, break up a monotonous thread, or convey extreme displeasure with three rogue commenters one angry misfit from the Federal Building? A swarm of red pandas!

To their eternal credit, MFMP, Boourns, and brgulker instantly grasped the meaning—nay, the mystery and majesty!—of the red panda.

The rest, as they say, is DBB history.

RED PANDAS 4 LYFE!
