What a Fabulous Furry Friday It Is…

Today, Fabulous Furry Friday brings you more Great Moments in History! Today is the 40th anniversary of Richard M. Nixon’s resignation from the presidency, as a result of, well, some really bad stuff he did.  But as much as we might like to think otherwise, we do have a few things for which to thank old Tricky Dick , the most important being….

Hello? Pandas?????

The first "official" pandas that came to live permanently in the USofA

The first “official” pandas that came to live permanently in the USofA

And while we are talking pandas and politics, a faithful reader and supporter sent me a link to this story of a NY Congressional representative who is going trolling for pandas (and perhaps votes?) on the extremely long recess that Congress is now on. Feast your eyes on this editorial on the NYC-Panda question.

And then, of course, the first men walked on the moon during Nixon’s first (and only completed) term:

One step for a small bear....

One step for a small bear….

But the Watergate burglars had nothing on the panda kindergarten!

Mr Wu speaks out!

“What did dey knows, and when did dey knows it?”  Fuggedabout da %7^$## tape!

And who says panda satire isn’t educational?

Meanwhile, yet another alert reader told me that today is national Cat Day.  frankly, it feels like every day is cat day around my house, but what do I know? Mehitabel is celebrating the day by relaxing with a good book:

What cats are reading at the beach this summer!

What cats are reading at the beach this summer!

Meanwhile, if you haven’t already done so, don’t waste another second without checking out my latest books, Pandamorphosis and The Panda Chronicles Book 4: the Book of Wu! (Mebbe you might want a copy for your very own!)

Well, we’ll see you all next week. Um..is this conversation being taped?

Be the Bear,
Bob T. panda

    Oh Bob T/Anne….your brain on pandas is so hilariously funny. The last cartoon with Mehitabel almost made me spit out my caffeine! I have not read the book on which the cartoon is based (nor do I intend to – or see the movie), but the look on her face is priceless! Thank you for sharing your creative genius with the world!

      To give full disclosure, I did not read the original book either, nor do I plan to!
      It always makes my day when I hear that I caused someone to spit out their coffee. Huzzah! It is a good day today.
      :o)

        In my case, it was yogurt that was spit out. (I was reading at lunch) The Lincoln bedroom thing did it.

          That line still makes me crack up too. (Am I supposed to admit that?) sorry about the yogurt. :0/

      Mehitabel had a lovely day reading. She thanks you for your interest in cats, whom she believes are far superior to pandas.

What does your inner panda think?
