does Sad Panda have a dating life?

sadpanda As far as I can tell, Sad Panda in Old Town, Poland, is a young woman, slim (for a Panda), with great hair and elegant hands.  She must be dating, right?  How does that go for a sad panda?

Date: so, what do you do? (in Polish, of course)

SP: I’m a sad panda (again, in Polish)

Date: what?

SP: I wear a panda costume and sit in front of the Royal Castle in Old Town and hold my head in my hands.  If it’s a slow day, I sob audibly.

Date: does that pay well?

SP: it depends on the day.  I put out a can and people throw money in if they like me.

Date: so, you’re a beggar.

SP: no, I’m a performance artist.

Date: How many Panda suits do you own?

SP: one

Date: doesn’t it get hot and sweaty?

SP: yes

Date: how do you clean it?

SP:  how do you clean a Panda suit?

Date: You sit in a public place acting sad, wearing the same stinky outfit day after day, with a can for money in front of you.  But you’re not a beggar.

SP: hmmm

Date: are you drunk when you do this?

SP: no, but I think I’m going to get drunk now.
