A restaurant owner in Germany has a weird way of staging a protest against the coronavirus lockdown.

According to online site Huff Post, he filled his tables with a hundred stuffed toy pandas.

Just in case you don’t grasp the idea, the move is done in a play on the word “pandemic.”

“We wanted to put some life back into our restaurant,” said Guiseppe Fichera, manager of restaurant Pino.

Just when you thought it could not get any wittier, the pandas are seated with bottles of Corona on the table.

Fichera added that he would keep the lights on all day and night so passersby can enjoy the display of protest.

German officials are expected to agree to extend a “lockdown light” until December 20 due to COVID-19.

That means bars, restaurants and entertainment venues must stay closed, while shops and schools can remain open.

Meanwhile, one customer bought a beer worth $7.02 and left a whopping $3,000 tip to restaurant employees.

According to reports, the establishment only offers take home service due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Nighttown owner Brendan Ring said the man wished him well and told him to share the tip with the four employees.
