I discovered this book in Popular yesterday. Seems to be a writer's nightmare and an editor's dream-come-true!
The joke, which I first heard during the Malacca reunion, goes like this:
A panda walks into a cafe, eats a sandwich, fires two rounds into the air, and walks out.
The surprised waiter asks why he did that. The panda tosses a badly punctuated wildlife manual at him, saying, "I'm a panda. Look it up."
Coming across the relevant entry, he reads it:
Panda -- mammal native to China. Eats, shoots and leaves.
