What do you mean by “um”?

A faithful reader, (okay, well, it was my brother,) suggested that I remind people just what WOOZPPAH stands for. So here I go: WOOZPPAH stands for WOOdlandpark Zoo Project PandaH… and I know, I know..there is no “H” at the end of ‘Panda’ but it seemed more festive with an ‘H’ at the end.  Kind of like ” There is no ‘R’ in Washington,” as my friend Sandy Bradley always used to say on the old Potluck Show on Saturday mornings in a Wallingford tavern.

But, being that the word WOOZPPAH is kind of obscure, and you have to explain it every time you use it, we need a zippy hashtag so that our movement to bring pandas to Washington State, (or even better, Seattle, or even better than that, Whidbey Island, which while it doesn’t have a zoo, it does have any number of properties with out of control bamboo growing on them.)

If you’re just tuning in, check out our other ‘toons about WOOZPPAH here! And here!

let me call you sweetheart...

We promise we’ll clean up after them and EVERYTHING! It won’t be like the thing with the goldfish, honest!

So put your thinking cap on and come up with some really good hastags for our campaign to bring pandas to Washington State. This is really, really important, because…um,,, well you are just going to have to take my word for it! It just is!

Tune in on Friday for more from the Princess Pinky Bridgegate scandal! Maybe she will have news about how she did at the Iowa Caucuses!

Be the Bear,

    With no understanding of how hashtags work, my suggestion is “#SeaWoodlandPandas” or “#SeaZooPandas”. Not cute or funny, but it identifies the “who, what, where and why.” The “why” is kind of/sort of in that locals would know there is a lack of giant pandas at Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo.

    I forgot to add that my suggestions were inspired by aske55’s earlier suggestion of “SEAPANDA.” I’ve been wanting to visit and get to know Seattle beyond the few hours from past visits, and Giant Pandas would inspire me to cajole, bribe, sweet talk DH to accompany me. We’ve even talked about traveling to Seattle via Amway from Oakland, CA (across the Bay from us) a few years back! I can smell the coffee now, aahhh.

      Pandas are an excellent reason to visit anywhere. I’ve visited pandas in three countries, including this one. Holland, one of my favorite places to visit is supposed to get some pandas sometime this year, so if I get to go back there, I will definitely visit them.
      I think pandas would really like Seattle, but maybe that’s just me. We have had the occasional non-panda zoo get together here. (#WOOZPPAH!) BUT IT WOULD BE SO MUCH BETTER WITH PANDAS. (sorry, didn’t mean to go all shoutycaps)
