Are pandas overrated?

Good news for panda lovers: The National Zoo has reached an agreement with China and the zoo's two giant pandas will remain in D.C. for five more years. How do you feel about pandas?

The pudgy black & white fur balls are costing too much to "rent", they're picky eaters, and cost a fortune in "maintenance costs." Sounds like an expensive sports car to me. This is just one more more way the Chinese have given us another debt to pile onto the massive mound of crap we already owe them.

Take a look at Panda Cam - They are fascinating!

Of course they are overrated. I find them to be scary and dingy looking.

I have never understood the charm.

I have never understood why these ugly, scary, and dingy looking things were/are considered cute.

According to some, the money we used on the pandas should have been used to educate a moron like you better.

the Panda's generate far more income then they cost. They are the Zoo's top attraction and bring in visitors who buy panda merchandise and food etc.
Even more then that, they help bring us together with the Chinese and the rest of the world on many levels, and thats also a good thing.
Panda's in DC are a win/win situation.
