Pardon our technical difficulties

Oh Cwap! I screwed up!

I really, really thought that I had set up a post for Sunday, but the weekend was kind of busy, and all I can say is that my brain was obviously overloaded and…I just forgot. Or to be more accurate, I thought I had done it, but I didn’t. So…does that qualify as a technical difficulty? I throw myself on Pinky’s mercy! Fortunately, I have not been hauled off by the authorities for inappropriate humor, so there’s that! and now you get a little giggle on Monday evening!

I’ve heard through the Twidder grapevine that Pinky is writing her own state of the Union (or “Uniom”) address and just between you and me, I think Pinky’s address will be much more fun, interesting, and coherent than He Who Must Not Be Named’s address. Are people taking bets as to whether he will stay on script (using his petulant, somewhat whiny “I’m reading someone else’s words because mommee said I had to” voice) or blast off into an incoherent rant?

I hope someone will tell me because I will not be watching.

Let Pinky be Pinky!

Thanks to everyone who emailed me or sent me a twidder message to make sure I was okay. I really love you guys! You make this crazy situation our country is in more bearable. (Bearable, get it?) Thank you for being here.

Viva Les pandas!
Bob T Panda

And don’t forget! Pinky’s new book is out there and ready to come home with you! Huzzah!

Right now #216 in Books> Graphic Novels & Comics!!!!

      Pinky has always been quite the fashion plate! (Much to Tian Tian’s dismay when he gets the PandaXpressCard bill!)

    Poor Bubba he takes after his dad when it comes to having a good appetite. Thank goodness for the invention of the DVR. If I had to listen to the Orange Mam-baby’s voice for more than a few seconds I would break the TV. Glad you are Okay, just busy.

      Thank you. I will only listen to it in tiny, tiny snippets in the endless replays that are sure to follow. I think Pinky would give a much better one, but there you have it. #PeoplePreferPinky

    Huzzah! Huzzah! You are ok! Great!
    AND I received the Panda Trip gifts from you! Thank you so much! They are so lovely, and I am savoring them by looking and enjoying just how talented you are. AND I received The Pinky Defense which I ordered last Friday! A plethora of art all done by you! I am a lucky person! What a delight you are and talented, too!
    Thank you for going on your trip to China! I am loving every minute you were gone and all the results from your trip.
    As for HWMNBN and his speech, I am torn as whether I will watch or not. I never missed an Obama speech, but this one coming up by our resident idiot, I just don’t know. There is the teacher in me who wants to be sure I heard everything he said so I can discuss with knowledge while the other part of me who hates everything the idiot stands for may not be able to stand it. I will think on it.
    Again, thank you so much for all you do with your talents to make me laugh and live in a wonderful world of Pinky, Bubba Boo Boo, Mommee, Daddee, Bob T, Mehitibel, the Meihems, The Lunnies, Yip and Jip, Be Be Maurice, etc. By the way, Pinky looks chic in her Pandalypics
    Outfit and Bubba is handsome and debonair in his! Little fashion plates, both of them. Has Bubba been in the cuppycakes and frosting again! More ‘foo!
    Hope this finds you well!

      I don’t think I can bear to watch HWMNBN give his lying State of the Union speech. It is more than my poor heart can take. I will spend the evening watching panda videos, drawing pandas, and watching Rachel Maddow. I can only hope we survive this, but honestly, that seems to get less and less likely as time goes on.

    Angry Bubba face! Then Really Angry Bubba face!! I adore him so much.
    As for Pinky, well isn’t she the cutest little thing in her winter outfit. Where did she get those boots? I want a pair 🙂

      It’s been really fun for me to know how much people appreciate how far I have come in being able to show emotion in the pandas faces. Plus I love making Bubba look mad. Pinky made me do it! I don’t know where she gets her outfits, but I know that Daddee will find out when he gets the next PandaXpress bill. Oopsie!

    Hi Anne!!!! My copy of your new book is arriving today from Amazon!!!!! I’ll be reading it instead of watching the SOTU nonsense!!!
    I just sent a suggestion to SNL about a skit … if they don’t use it maybe the Pandas can … “Game show skit suggestion, Name That Disorder, audio &/or video clips of Trump, contestants guess personality/psychological disorder displayed …” Might be fun for the Panda Kindygarden?!?!?!
    Have a good week!!!!!
    MaryLou!

      So glad that The Pinky Defense has already arrived! I’m so glad you will have something of intelligence and quality to read tonight instead of the SOTU by the Orange Menace. It will help your blood pressure too, not to mention protect your television screen from flying objects!
      Thank you for your excellent suggestion! Even if SNL does take your suggestion, I suspect the panda version of this idea will come out differently. Heh! It has been added to my idea file (post-it notes affixed to the wall in front of my desk.) You would be surprised to know(or maybe not) that this system actually works, and many of the notes there get turned into ‘toons!
      Thanks again for reading panda satire! Sanity through pandas is nothing to sneeze at.

      Oh my gosh! I hope you have gotten legal ownership of this new game before someone steals it and makes a fortune from it! I think I could win easily, naming the disorder would be a snap!

        It does sound like a good game. I wonder if Bubba will try to win by figuring out what personality disorders Pinky has. #WorldDominationByPandas

    I almost spit out my coffee reading your comment wondering if “he who will not be named” will use his “petulant, somewhat whinny voice”. Boy that nailed it.

      Those are excellent strategies for coping with our national Nightmare on Pennsylvania Avenue. I cope by making small batches of frosting and eating them with a spoon.
