Pandas are already one of nature’s best jokes, due to the fact that they look like people in bear-style romper suits.
Now a visit to Edinburgh Zoo has proved that they really are natural comedians.
It’s been months since two Chinese pandas moved into their new Scottish home – but on the day we went, tickets to catch a glimpse had already sold out.
We could have moaned but made do with laughing at the petulant behaviour of the star attractions instead.
Neither panda fancied appeasing those who’d queued hours to see them by braving the cold. And then wouldn’t even turn round when the visitors traipsed past the enclosure, ensuring the only thing on show was two black and white lumps – and great comedy timing.
