Well, all good sites need a mascot.

Twitter has the bird, we have the panda.

Maybe we should name him! I smell a contest...

  • @Pekka: There's room for a panda too. After all, we have unicorns :) – uɐɯsO uɐɥʇɐN Aug 14 '10 at 17:28
  • Grooveshark already has Pickles the Panda. He gets blamed when there's downtime: flickr.com/photos/torley/3835388365 – Blumer Aug 16 '10 at 2:39

    Whenever I see a Panda, I am reminded of this. Please let's not choose a panda as the site's mascot – Pëkka Oct 21 '10 at 16:26
