the trials and tribulations of the sad panda

Der Panda Hat Weltschmerz

Another Sad Panda sighting! Reader Lauren Gillingham ran into our favorite dejected plushie on the Bleecker Street stop on the subway recently — literally. “I almost took sad panda down as I rushed to get off the subway,” she informs us. “I apologized, did not hear a reply, and then promptly snapped a picture. I felt bad taking the picture because the panda looked so damn sad. I attempted conversation one last time with a pathetic, ‘Hello?’ and then was forced to move on by a German tourist who couldn’t be less interested.” We guess weirder stuff goes down in Germany but still we have a hard time believing that anyone could not be interested in Sad Panda. We can’t get enough of him. Please continue sending sightings to intel@nymag.com.
