Sad Panda


Photo by dis_cover_y
When I was in Flushing, New York, there were local "iconic" figures (short term for CRAZY PERSON) that everyone knew such as the "Nickel Man" and the "Flushing Pimp".

If you don't know who they are, then you aren't from Queens Borough or New York. People will assume that you are a FOB ("Fresh off the boat"), a Twinkie (A yellow bread with white cream inside. Indicates an Oriental Asian who acts like a white person. Flushing is a city full of Oriental Asians. Another term is "Banana." Twinkies tend to live in rich neighbourhood located in Long Island or in New Jersey ), or a clueless tourist from another country.

Then there is "Sad Panda," a mysterious man in a panda suit walking around Manhattan. No one knows who he is except for the fact that he looks very sad in a Panda suit.

I forgot how much I miss New York.

Only in America:
