Death and Taxes

Accountability is always the question, isn’t it? Especially when it comes to paying taxes and Bubba is right to distrust the tax collector. Should Pinky required to hand over her tax returns? Certainly there are one or two other people around DC who might need to do that.

Meanwhile, I have been so heartened both by the contributions that are being made in honor of The Panda Chronicles (“And Mehitabel! Don’t forget Mehitabel!” said…um…Mehitabel.) and also by the nice notes people have sent me. It means A WHOLE LOT to me that these ‘toons mean a lot to you. I am honored that you spend part of your busy days reading what I do. Those comments really brightened my day, and that is no small thing in these perilous times. You can read about my project here.

Meanwhile, Pinky is up to her old tricks…

Taxes

Uh oh…it’s the Pinky Revenue Service!

I’m trying not to think about the real Bao Bao leaving DC for China later this month. They haven’t announced the date, and I don’t think they will. She has one last party on February 11th, and sometime after that, a luxury limo will pull up to the panda house, she’ll gather her trunks and suitcases, kiss her mom and dad goodbye, poke her little brother, and head for the airport. But her alter ego is not going anywhere. I hope that will make the sadness of her departure be somewhat less. I know her real life friends Charlene, Maria, and Karen will visit her often.

    I love your wit and your cartoons! It is very nice to have somewhere to go to get a laugh out of these horrible times! I’m glad you have a vehicle to memorialize Mehitabel!

    General Bun to the rescue! Or at least he tried to hold Pinky back from touching Bubba’s Banky Pig. The poor kid can’t catch a break from big zizzy, huh?
    Side note: I loved math (especially algebra) but hated geometry. I know, I’m weird.

      The Amalgamated Order of the Bun always works on the behalf of the oppressed.
      I was (and am still) math impaired. I did like geometry, but I think it was because geometry has pictures!

    Poor little Bubba looks like he is about to go airborne! General Bun holding back Pinky is just too adorbs.

    “A well functioning society….” Before she leaves {sniff, sniff}, maybe Pinky (da REAL Presydent, by popular vote!) can visit the WH and demand the see T-I-C’s tax returns.
    Ask to see his college transcripts too. We call Panda-Poo on whether he even graduated from Wharton!

      I’m guessing, if there is a diploma, that it was bought.
      The buns always look out for their pandas!
