A panda bear walked into a restaurant. He sat down at a table and ordered some food.

When he was finished eating, he took out a gun and shot his waiter. He then left the restaurant.

After the police caught up with him, they asked him why he had killed the waiter.

He replied, “Look me up in the dictionary.”

What did the dictionary say?

    $\begingroup$ I looked through the FAQs for clues to how to use this site properly. There's no way I would have found those threads unless I knew to look for them. Maybe that exclusion should be in the FAQ. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ @BGM Feel free to open a thread on Meta about it! It's very possible for us to edit it into the "do not ask" section. Though honestly, I think the reason this received downvotes is because it's not as much a riddle as it is a very common-knowledge pun. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because it is a joke, not a puzzle. $\endgroup$

    $\begingroup$ I don't know a puzzle about a guy walking into a bar, @CyanogenCX. Puzzles can have humorous solutions, but a puzzle gives you gripping points that lead you to a conclusion: the solution. A joke is the opposite: it _mis_leads you, or leads you nowhere, so that the punchline has maximum comedic impact. I can't imagine anyone "solving" this without already having heard the story. It's too broad: nothing points to the specific wording of the solution, and exact wording is the key to having the correct answer. $\endgroup$
