Best First Paragraph Ever

I can't figure out if this story is about the worst zoo in the world or the best zoo in the world.

The Las Vegas Zoo (yes, it exists) acquired two animals this year, a leopard and a binturong. The leopard has already gone from arthritic to dead, and the binturong (also know as a bearcat, although it's related to neither bear nor cat) smells of popcorn and Fritos, as is characteristic of the species. His name is Bruce.

Whichever it is, it's worth reading.
