Fabulous Furry Friday!

It’s Friday! and it is Fabulous and Furry!

I had mixed feelings about making any kind of commentary about the death murder of Cecil the lion. I have friends and acquaintances who hunt for food, but killing a living creature just to put his head on the wall seems so very wrong in so many ways. I couldn’t find anything to make a lighthearted cartoon about, because, as John Stewart  accurately said after the murder of 9 people in a South Carolina church  recently. “There’s just nothing funny about this.” But the pandas all gathered around me, and reminded me of this important concept, and so I did a drawing in tribute to the endangered among us, on two feet as well as four.

We R All Endangered.

And now, on with our regularly scheduled pandas….News from the panda front in San Diego is a little sad, but not totally unexpected. Bai Yun is 24 years old and they decided to give her one more chance to have another cub, as hormonally she was…um…ready. The SDZ folks announced today that Bai Yun is not Pregnant.

I’m sure in some ways, both she and Mr Wu are relieved. The Wu self gets to remain her baby boy forever, and given his attitude about cute cub proliferation, he is probably especially relieved.

Please refer any questions to Mr Wu's legal team.

Are you now, or have you ever been a panda?

it's a wonderful life

Thank goodness Bee the Bear still has her magical wand from the last adventure.

Uh oh. All is not well in Pandyland!

Hope you are having a wonderful summer, and not burning in a raging brush or forest fire. Or experiencing earthquakes or tsunamis. Or anything bad. Just saying.

Be the Bear,
Bob T Panda

PS: notice how I didn’t say anything about the #GOPdebate last night.

    Indeed – where was Pinky in the debate? I looked and looked and looked for Pinky and couldn’t find her. What happened?

    Thank youse for the Cecil tribute. Very tasteful.

      Pinky’s mother locked her in her room without her magical wand! Is that any way to treat an icon? I think she would have added a note of intelligence and decorum to this circus. Yeah, Pinky.

      Glad you liked the Cecil tribute. It took me a while to find my way to it. We R all endangered, (and last night’s “extravaganza” proved it.)

      It shall be so. Look for it next week. I need to do a little formatting and designing to make it work on the various items. I think I want to give a little larger donation to Pandas International for sales of these items. (Sorry Pinky, these will not generate campaign donations, even if you do need 570 gallons of pink paint)

      No, she most definitely is not! For several generations, her family have been members of the Cake Party, one of the oldest and most revered political parties supported by pandas. Pinky wants to uphold that proud tradition, even though she is running against me, which if you want MY opinion. Is not very nice of her.

    The word that came to me, when I saw your tribute to Cecil was…PURRFECT!

    The forlorn look on the little panna-lion’s face, left-front, is how I imagine Cecil’s cubs feel after their Daddee was senselessly murdered. RIP Cecil, may your precious cubs, and pride-family be safe from harm!

What does your inner panda think?
