Rumour says that the only reason the panda was chosen in the first place at WWF was because you could photocopy it in black and white, and publishers had taken (for the same reason) the zebra, puffin, and penguin.

As does the killer whale, which is also too large to photocopy.

That was always the point at which you knew the Sea World office party had gone too far.
