Postage Stamp of the Week: Pistol-Packing Panda

My dad brought home an assortment of stamps from his recent trip to China, one among them featured this panda shooting a gun. Turns out that "Jingjing" is one of five mascots representing the 2008 Olympics in Beijing. I didn't know that firearms was an Olympic event.

Yeah, the biathlon is the long-storied winter event (x-country ski and shoot a rifle at targets while your heart rate is maxed out; great endurance + skill event).

That Panda wouldn't make it past customs though, surely he'd be branded a terrorist!
