Diplomatically Speaking...

These two pandas are called Sweetie and Sunshine, and they were a gift to the people of Scotland from China.

They're not just any pandas though. Because they are a gift from the Chinese government they are an instrument of diplomacy. Meaning? They have diplomatic immunity.


How cool is that? Admittedly locked up as they are in Edinburgh Zoo they can't really do much with it, but it's still pretty sweet.

They are pretty cute aren't they? Is it wrong that I'd like to have their job?

  1. So if the Pandas break out, head down Princes Street and commit some kind of epic robbery, no one can stop them...

    :O

  2. Exactly. They can even park on double yellow lines while they do it. They are UNTOUCHABLE.

  3. Has the makings of a great screenplay though...if our plot bunnies dry up we could co-write it. I'm thinking 'Pandemic' or 'Bamboozled'...
