“O” is for Optimism

Let’s face it, despite all the opposition that pandas face, they are pretty optimistic, or at least that’s what I observe. Some obdurate oafs opine that if pandas have such a hard time reproducing, they should just be allowed to go extinct. O-contraire, I object! I feel obligated to oppose such an obtuse viewpoint.

Consider: a grizzly bear will eat you as soon as look at you, and probably use your toothbrush to scratch places a toothbrush has no business being. Whereas upon meeting a panda on the trail, he will share his lunch, give you directions to the nearest coffee house and offer to carry your pack. OK I may be overstating the out of this world wonderfulness of pandas. But still, as the song says, We do not eat hikers in the woods, I don’t think a panda should!  Is it any wonder I am OBSESSED with pandas?

Occupy your inner panda!

Just how hard would it be...

Just how hard would it be…

...to embrace your inner panda?

And Bob, ever optimistic, tries to rehabilitate the panda kindergarten.

Nothing like a bit of the great outdoors to straighten up the panda kindergarten.

    I can’t believe that Bob T Panda asked the class to give up cupoy cakes in the wilderness. What creature in their right mind would give up cuppy cakes? Whew. Good thing they decided to cancel the wilderness hike!

    It tells me you are hilarious. Your text is always entertaining and the drawings never fail to make me laugh. I always blow up the page to make sure I see all the jokes — like the little panda taking money out of Bob’s wallet, above!

      Hee hee. Yes. I pack a lot of details in there. Sort of the “Where’s Waldo” of Pandas. :o)
