Looks like this snow event was a dud for me. It's snowing, but it's mixed with rain. Everything is melting. Could still freeze. At least I don't have to go anywhere until afternoon on Monday. Now, on Friday, there's a chance for snow again. This could make work a real adventure.

I can think of a few.*

“The piano stays on the beach!”
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
“Oh crap, everybody run!”

***

“Open the pod bay door, Hal.”
“I’m afraid I can’t do that, Dave.”
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
“WTF?” (in unison)

***
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!
“I’ll have what the lady on the floor is having.”

***
“Houston, we have a problem.”
ROOOOOOAAAARRRR!

Those all seem pretty badass situations to me. ;)

This is serious....sorta.

If I'm talking about a panda that is a vegan, and an assassin, is the vegan redundant? Would I say the vegan assassin panda? The vegan panda assassin? Do I need a comma? Englishing is hard. Is it any clearer in other languages? Do they have an Oslo comma, a Odessa comma, or Oxnard comma?

Not sure about Oslo or Oxnard, but I can confirm that Odessa, Texas, has no special commas.
Whether that holds for Odessa, Ukraine, the Bee Gees album, Odessa, or Odessa Grady Clay, mother of Muhammad Ali, I cannot say.

You need the comma, at least with that word order. Without it, a potential reading is that the panda assassinates vegans.
