Panda Kindergarten Lives!!!!

While we usually post cartoons of Bob T. Panda, and his kindergarten cohorts (not to mention Mehitabel!!!!)  There sometimes comes a real picture of pandas which a pandaholic such as myself CANNOT resist.  This comes to us via Panda News and is of the Spanish panda twins born last August. (Or was it September?)  Nobody expects the Spanish Panda Kindergarten!!!!

Back to you Bob!

Be the Bear!!!!!

Notes From the Bamboo Forest

My favorite F.T.P. (friend to pandas) Henry Nicholls, of The Way of the Panda fame,  writes that there are 3 classes of folks in regard to pandas. First are pandaphiles, those who love pandas; next are pandaphobics, who are obviously quite insane, cause who doesn’t love pandas; and next are the pandapathetics, of whom we dare not speak.  We at the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire maintain that there are 3 more groups, in regard to pandas.  The first is pandapologists, those who make excuses for pandas; next are the pandaholics, who can usually be found watching endless panda videos on youtube, (my personal favorite is baby pandas playing on a slide).  Pandaholics can often become pandalusional, from watching too many videos of adorable pandas, and believe that they have a “special understanding of pandas”

I’m just sayin’.

Panda accessories: what the well turned out panda has!

Ok, this cartoon doesn’t have ANYTHING to do with panda accessories, but I did want to take the opportunity to send out a big pandy “thank you” to F.T.P. (that’s “friend to pandas”, if you haven’t been paying attention) Faith for her thoughtful gift of a panda tote bag!  I’m so excited!  I put some bamboo snacks in it to take on my walk to my neighbors bamboo plantation, in case I get hungry on the way there.

Stay tuned for the panda kindergarten celebration of the Chinese new year, Year of the Rabbit.!

Be the Bear!

More from the year in review….

Whilst I was pandaing around this last year, I noticed that there was a need for more books about pandas! For the last several years, we here at Way Better Than Working have been completely obsessed about, well, pandas.  Bob T’s book, Going Panda, was well received among reviewers of books written by pandas, but pretty much no one else.  Hopefully, it’s re-release at next years Pandapalooza! will bring a wider readership.

till then,

be the Bear!

The Last of the Holiday Theme Posts, or It isn’t Christmas without the Nutcracker

Well, I have to admit that my pulse races a little when I hear music from the Nutcracker ballet at christmas time, and apparently the panda kindergarten class is similarly inspired.  Coincidently, it is the third anniversary of my pandapiphany, when I first renewed my commitment to pandas.  The pandas were quietly and patiently biding their time, until I remembered their existence.  They came along at just the right time to renew my spirits. I am reminded of a popular song from the 70′s, paraphrased (or massacred, depending on your point of view):

 

When I find myself in times of trouble

Many pandas come to me,

Speaking words of whimsey,

Play with me, play with me.

Panda on,

the narrator

And a Pandy New Year!
