The setting: in the near future, despite all of the best efforts of the world's scientists, the Great Panda is on the verge of extinction.
The plan gone wrong: in a desperate bid to save the Great Panda from extinction, a desperate measure is implemented. Genetic modification of great panda DNA is allowed in a bid to alter their feeding and breeding habits. With regards to feeding - scientists modify the pandas so that they will eat a greater variety of foods rather than just bamboo. The plan sees some initial success. Sadly, however, there is a catch. The pandas, being notoriously picky eaters, will now only eat pies. Now the pandas are on the verge of extinction - from morbid obesity.
