Pandas: incompetent, inefficient piebald buffoons.

Alan Beattie’s How Each Nation Sinks or Swims??is the original source. I like Jack Ewing’s review:
Giant pandas are “incompetent, inefficient, piebald buffoons” that should be allowed to “die out.” Giant pandas evolved to depend exclusively on marginally nutritious bamboo. In economic terms, they’re “path dependent” ??? locked into a situation that limits them. Beattie admires cats, who gave up their free-roaming ways to carve out a niche hunting rats and snuggling with humans.

Incompetent piebald buffoons? O rly???

The Killer Question: are we humans… or are we pandas?
