Sad Panda Seen ‘Covering His Ears, As If to Push Out the Sounds of the World Around Him’

Reader Claire Jackson took this picture of the Sad Panda last Saturday, standing near the bull at Bowling Green. "He was taking pictures with tourists," she told us. "He seemed sad because the tourists were more interested in having their picture taken with the bull's testicles than with him." Reader Jen Kipley saw him in the same spot at about 11:30 this morning, and he was feeling no better. She reports he was "dejectedly covering his ears, as if to push out the sounds of the world around him." Existential. Apparently, this is his usual spot. Could it be that Sad Panda is the physical manifestation of the bear market?
