A Koala Walks into a Bar...

A tavern in Australia got a visit from what turned out to be a celebrity last weekend. Patrons took pictures and called friends to come over to see the koala who came in, presumably to get out of the rain.
Kevin Martin, who works at the Marlin Bar on Queensland's Magnetic Island, was stunned a wild male koala wandered inside just after 8pm on Saturday.

"He sauntered up to the bar ... I asked him for ID and he got all disgruntled ... walked around the bar and then climbed up a pole and sulked," Mr Martin said today.

"We have a big stuffed marlin on the roof and he just sat under the marlin in front of the speaker, listening to the music.

"He fell asleep."

Rangers were called to take the koala back to his natural habitat. Magnetic Island is known for its large population of koalas. Link -via Fark

The koala is lucky the tavern was in Queensland rather than in Mercy, Australia, because in Mercy they make tea from koalas. The fur that winds up in the tea makes it rather unpopular, but it has to be made that way, because, as everyone knows, the koala-tea of Mercy is not strained.

A panda bear walks into a bar and orders a sandwich. The waiter brings him the sandwich. The panda bear eats it, pulls out a pistol, kills the waiter, and gets up and starts to walk out.

The bartender yells for him to stop. The panda bear asks, "What do you want?" The bartender replies, "First you come in here, order food, kill my waiter, then try to go without paying for your food."

The panda bear turns around and says, "Hey! I'm a Panda. Look it up!" The bartender goes into the back room and looks up panda bear in the encyclopedia, which read: "Panda: a bear-like marsupial originating in Asian regions. Known largely for it's stark black and white coloring. Eats shoots and leaves."
