And the Lord came unto the cheery Panda and spake, saying, "Although thou art a peaceful critter, thou shalt defend yourself furiously when attacked and rippe the limbs from thine enemies and make them wish they had never been born..." (Panda 15:10)
The term refers to the giant panda which only eats bamboo, a food that offers little nutritional value and only allows mother pandas to raise one cub at a time. In addition, panda bears are known for being reluctant to reproduce, severely limiting their species's success.
Humans can be referred to as "pandas" when they choose a lifestyle that limits their ability to earn a living, maintain their health, or provide for a family. This term is especially appropriate when a person squanders opportunities available to them.
Examples include: vegans, who prioritize the health and well-being of other animals above their own; and college dropouts, who had an opportunity to improve their life through education but failed to seize it.
A: No, he decided to become a vegan. He is such a panda.
