Snark of the week, panda version 

I have always felt that the panda was the perfect symbol for the WWF; it is an odd looking fussy eater that is not very good at sex.

From a comment on James Delingpole's question of whether it's proper to save the panda.  I should say, the commenters on the Telegraph's blogs are worth reading as much as writers like Delingpole and Daniel Hannan.

By the way, simple answer to Delingpole's problem.  Give property rights to the pandas to WWF.  "You own 'em all now.  Every last one.  You can figure out the mating problem yourselves.  Have a nice day."  They can lease them to zoos, use the revenues for panda amour research or what-have-you.
