A Chinese biologist has collected five tons of panda crap which he plans to use to make cancer-fighting tea, which will sell at a cup-dropping $36,000 a pound. An Yashi, a lecturer from Sichuan, reckons the panda scat is chock full of cancer combating substances, making it an ideal fertiliser for green tea - already famously …
Tastes like shit to me
Was that too obvious?
This coffee tastes like shit.
It IS shit Austin.
Blizzard will rake it in...
With Blizzards upcoming expansion to World Of Warcraft,entitled "Mists Of Pandaria" and featuring Kung-Fu Panda's as the main part of the expansion, does this mean a corresponding increase in the price of virtual panda shite as well ?
Activision, those, cunning, cunning owners of Blizzard, must surely see this lucrative opportunity to glean yet more wonga from their 12 million subscribers.
What is this fascination with poop drinks?! If I want a posh coffee, I'll get Jamaican Blue Mountain at £70 a pound, sans villi and mucosa.
the coffee *IS* shit.
The Kopi Luwak coffee beans are softened by the process and produce a noticeably less bitter taste.
Panda poo probably won't make the tea taste any worse - herbivore poo tends to be much less abhorrent than carnivore or omnivore poo (rabbits, for example, will frequently eat their own droppings to have another go at digesting grass) - but I'm dubious about the health benefits.

Some people will buy any old shit if you tell them it cures cancer.
One wonders what the Daily Mail is gonna think of this.
where he got the idea.
Had a cup of tea or coffee at McDonalds perhaps?
They're just trying to panda to people with more money than sense.
At last something to rival Baldrick's coffee in Black Adder Goes Forth.
On the plus side...
if there's a viable commercial application for the panda, then it makes it easier for the people in power to give a shit about their survival.
they get to take the shit when the pandas are saved
and then profit...
capitalism at work, no?
Does this mean that you get a black and white coffee simultaneously in one cup?
The coffee we get at work is a local variety of Kopi Luwak - it tastes like some passing cat has pee'd on it.
"it tastes like some passing cat has pee'd on it."
Maybe the vendor at your workplace has a personal "interpretation" of Kopi Luwak.
(Meaning it actually has cat pee ?).
Clearly, the name for this product should be...
Title should be..
