Well, it’s October, so it’s time to have a very special encore presentation of that favorite holiday classic, A Halloween Carol (with apologies to Charles Dickens) Huzzah!!!! But you knew this was coming, didn’t you?
Now, run and get on your jammies, make some popcorn and get ready to enjoy A Halloween Carol!
Bubba’s first feature role!
Mr Wu makes a very cute ghost, don’t you think?
Hey! who said Wu could poof things?
One of Pinky’s misdeeds has come back to haunt her… can her campaign survive this?
You didn’t think I was going to show you the whole thing in one swell foop, did you? Tune in Next week for the final episodes of A Halloween Carol!
Nope, it just wouldn’t be an Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire fable, without an appearance of the cast on the extremely famous and popular (most popular show ever!!!) Mehitabel Tonite!!!show! Meet the pandas behind the seemingly true to life portrayal of the exciting tale, Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!! Sometimes it’s hard to know what’s true and what’s not true!
Are we talking about alternative facts again?
Well, no, just a little fiction within a fiction, a tale told on a stormy night to calm little pandas as they listen to the wind howl. A tale to bring tranquility to pandas who are being buffeted by a political wind(bag) the blows evil onto the land.
But enough about the battle between good and ebil! Let’s meet the cast of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!
I bet everyone (especially their moms) are breathing a deep sigh of relief that Pinky and the Meihems are managing to work things out. Then there is the small issue of mebbe Bubba glowing in the dark (“just a liddle!!!!”) See? I told you everything would work out okay.
Really, Pinky and the Meihems will always be friends, even if their truces seem to be temporary at best. Everyone knows that three girls are a very volatile social structure, especially when two of them are twin sisters. I find it kind of reassuring, that even after all the hubbub at the party, the Pinky and the Meihems can have a nice (mostly) friendly Skype session to rehash the big night.
No harm done, right, girls ???
Everyone knows the party isn’t over till you can sit down and re-hash it!
Gee, it beats me, Pinky, could it have something to do with…oh…I don’t know, the fact that you tried to poof your little cousins into oblivion? Possibly? Who knows! Maybe she’s just being hormonal or something. Anyway, I’m sure you’ll figure out some way to get out of being grounded before too long. She can’t stay mad forever!
And Poor Bubba! Getting grounded after getting poofed while protecting the little twins! Life just isn’t fair sometimes.
But now, on with the show!
I think I see a slight resemblance to a Pinky tantrum…just saying.
And just look at that smug look on Pinky’s face! She knows she won’t stay in trouble for very long!
Was there any phrase that induced more terror and apprehension, when you thought you had snuck in the house late at night than those five little words: not so fast, young lady …Sigh… Just when you thought maybe you got away with something.
Let’s just take a look at the happy family scene, taking place right now at the National Zoo Panda House…
Bubba: wait! why am i in trubble?
Oh, and one of my personal favorites: Do you know how much trouble you’re in??? Heh!
Remember what happened last Wednesday? You don’t? Well, you might want to scroll down past all those cute ‘toons about Six and Sebben, and review last Wednesday’s ‘toon. Go ahead, I’ll wait… Are we up to date now? Okay then! Not unlike all the people with love and hope in their hearts, and a commitment to inclusion for all people, they are showing up and standing up to the forces of hate and evil. Bubba is standing up to the evil POOF that has emanated from Pinky’s wand. There is power in love and hope, people. We have to believe that.
WE have to believe that there is a place in this country for all people, no matter their religion, their race, their choice of who they love, of who they believe they are. There is no room for hate and exclusion. We are all endangered if the factions that want to harm and exclude those who are considered “other” are allowed to succeed in spreading hate.
I’m betting on the power of Bubba and the power of love…
But all the power in the world is nothing compared to the power of Mommee!
See you on Wednesday, for the next exciting episode of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!!!
Oh dear! If even Bubba can’t dissuade Pinky from her evil plan, what hope is there for the world? Um…It’s possible I’m thinking about another situation instead of this one, but you know, unchecked power is unchecked power, if you know what I mean. We could maybe use Pinky’s magical wand to get us out of this one. Come on Pinky…use your magical wand for good, not evil.
If only her big brother hadn’t sent Pinky that magical wand …
Did Pinky just poof her little brother? Stay tuned!
Wait! You can’t just leave us here!
What happened to Bubba?????
Um…I guess you’ll have to tune in Sunday to find out, won’t you?
…but is he tough enough? He is an unlikely hero, to be sure. But his intentions are good and his heart is pure. He would do anything to defend his small cousins, Six and Sebben. But is Bubba a match for Pinky when she’s really, really mad? And what about her magical wand? It’s really powerful, you know!
We are about to find out if Bubba is made of something tougher than frosting!
Oh Bubba! Be careful!!!!
Oh no! What’s going to happen next? I guess you’ll have to tune in and find out, won’t you? Bwahahahahaha!
It’s about to happen! The moment of truth! The forces of good and evil are gathering and an epic battle is about to take place, right here in our nation’s capitol!!!! Um…I mean in the halls of the Kingdom of Pandalanta. Please excuse my confusion. It was an honest mistake, right? Something is going to hit the fan any minute now, and everyone is running for cover, lest they get splattered with you know what.
Actually, this could be true for either place, couldn’t it? But let’s continue with our feature presentation…
Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse!!!
Won’t someone save these innocent little pandas???
And hey! Today is Pinky’s actual birthday! What a great way to celebrate, right? Pinky contemplating an evil act! Well, it’s just a story, isn’t it? Isn’t it? Tune in Sunday (What? we have to wait till Sunday to find out what happens next?????) for the next exciting episode of Being Endangered is SUCH a Curse! Bwahahahahaha!
Panda On, as if our lives depend on it!
