User-Agent:       Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; rv:1.7.3) Gecko/20040911 Firefox/0.10

The newer firefox icon appears to be a gigantic red panda that is humping South
America. 

Before submitting to bugzilla, I called a number of friends and acquaintences in
South America, and thus far none of them have actually witnessed any humping
behavior, however.

Reproducible: Always
Steps to Reproduce:
1. look at the icon
2. move to south america
3. buy a tarp

Actual Results:  
vague discomfort of impending doom

Expected Results:  
If red panda /has/ to hump a continent, at the very least it should hump the
continent that it lives on -- Australia. Plus they gave us Silverchair and Yahoo
Serious. Frankly, it's payback time.

Firefox logo, with more detail of the globe used

I don't think the fox/red panda is humping South America, it doesn't seem to be
Terra that it is humping, but perhaps another planet?

Perhaps the logo should be re-vamped to use our planet, and re-center the
animal's groin over Australia?	They do deserve it, after all.

I made a mistake, in fact, the red panda is indigenous to Southern Asia. Despite
this, I still contend it should still be humping Australia because they are
totally asking for it.

Obviously, you are mistaken. I can clearly see Africa and Europe "conveniently"
dodging the proverbial bullet.

Using 1.0, I see the unknown planet that I mentioned earlier.  If Firefox wants
to move from the unknown world to Terra, I think we should standardize what
planet the browser is humping.

If we standardize on one planet though, what about all the other planets? 

I contend that if we're going to abandon earth, we should create a layer between
the firefox and the planet, you know, instead of just standardizing which planet
we're going to use. It may be difficult and time consuming at first -- maybe
even a little bit slow -- but then the fox will be able to hump EVERYTHING!

Saturn, Mars, Jupiter. It will even be able to hump Uranus -- you name it.

If we did, would be be talking about humping planets in Bugzilla?

Probably...

This bug is verified WONTFIX, but you might consider changing it to VERIFIED
PANDAFIXED.

Just a thought.

Are you.... are you all serious? ... for one you obviously dont know what a fox
looks like... Or the Earth at that matter.... none of those "Continents" on the
Firefox logo are in any way shaped as the ones one Earth, and another, A panda??
what the heck are you talking about.  You don't get out much do you? A panda
looks in no way like that.... I'm going to go cry now this is so sad...

You sir, are an idiot.  You obviously can't recognize a quite well executed
joke.  A joke that actually has some merit, none the less.  Have a good day,
don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out.
