Remember those elephant and donkey sculptures that homeless people relieved themselves on in 2002? Well, there's a new urine-stained piece of public art in town: Pandas. Why pandas? Because the National Zoo has pandas and we are very proud of our Zoo.
As our good friend Swamp City put it: "Ah, yes. The National Zoo. Where animals come to die."
