The Year of the Fabulous Furry Friday

Since Chinese New Year is nigh, I thought this week’s Fabulous Furry Friday round-up would serve the panda-satire loving public well by revisiting our previous Salutes to Chinese New Year by the panda kindergarten! Huzzah! Let’s get good and ready to celebrate the Year of the Dog!

Because Nobody Expects the Panda Kindergarten!

Do we REALLY want to review 2017?

I didn’t think so.

The Panda Chronicles Year in Review. (NOT)

In fact, not only was as bad as we thought it would be, it was worse.

It Seems like Chinese New Year Should be Happening Soon

I’m not very good at keeping track of dates (other than my own Birthday Season) so I don’t know exactly when Chinese New Year is, but I did hear through the grapevine that it is The Year of the Dog in the Chinese zodiac calendar. Feel free to let me know what the actual date is! (I know some of you are much better at keeping track of this stuff than I am.) But no matter the actual date! The Panda Kindergarten is ready with their annual Chinese New Year Celebration!!!

Huzzah for the Chinese New Year: The Year of the Dog!

How much is that doggie in da window…

Panda on!

Hey! It’s Groundhog Day

For years, I’ve been thinking I needed to write a Groundhog Day ‘toon, and wouldn’t you know, I don’t start thinking about it until…you guessed it, Groundhog Day. This is also the day that I traditionally procrastinate sending out holiday cards until, and then don’t do that either. So sue me. No, don’t! Just kidding!!!! People ask me how I find the time to be an incredibly gifted painter, write hilarious cartoons, and wrestle 5 acres of Northwest woods into submission. The answer is, I don’t do a lot of things that I probably should do, like clean the house and wash the dishes on some sort of regular basis.

To this I say, do you want to have new cartoons to read each week, or would you rather be able to eat off my bathroom floor without contracting a vile disease or swallow a hairball?

I thought so. You’re welcome.

And it was ever thus….

Meihem, not Mayhem.

Well, they did hang their coats up.

If I have but one life to live, let me give it for a cuppycake.

And for all you brave souls who listened to HWMNBN’s SOTU address. Congratulations. You are far braver than I am. In truth, by this weekend, I will probably have watched it in tiny bits and pieces that I can endure without running out of the house screaming in terror. I am keeping informed, as best I can, but there are limits to my endurance. I call my Senators and Congressman regularly. I’m trying to bring light into the world through art and humor. And I’m going to watch as many panda videos as I can.

Viva les Pandas!
Buy my new book!

The State of the Union (of Pandas)

Far be it from me to fail to capitalize of the tsunami of exposure by putting the words: The State of the Union in my post today. I will not watch it, I did not watch it, except in little bits and pieces that float up on the inter webs like …um…pieces of toilet paper floating downstream from some faulty plumbing. But because we love to make our thoughts known on things political (well, until they drag us away or 45 so enrages hostile forces that they drop a bomb on us) we offer today…

Pandas explain tax reform! An educational feature brought to you by the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire.

Clear as mud!

Does the tax plan foisted on us by an uncaring republican congress make any more sense now?

And don’t forget to join all the happy people who have welcomed Pinky into their life via The Pinky Defense! Huzzah! Available via the picture of Pinky’s book on the right-hand column!

Do you want to make Pinky mad? Buy her book before she finds out!

Panda On!

It’s Here! The Pinky Defense!

Well, it’s time for all Pinky, all the time! How is that different from the rest of the time, you may well ask. Um…I don’t know, but I’m pretty sure it is. Any way, stop interrupting me! I’m trying to get the word out that Pinky’s new book (book 8 of the Panda Chronicles) What does Pinky have to say about all this?

“Ebbryone Needs to CLAP LOUDER!!!!!”

That’s what Pinky would say. and now, to refresh your memory about just what is The Pinky Defense, here are a few ‘toons that are in the book:

pinky defense

Would YOU believe this panda?

pinky defense

Isn’t that the whole point of being presydent? Pinky.

lawyers

Maybe Mommee Mei might have some influence over Pinky…dream on!

NSA

Did you want to rephrase that last statement?

So run, don’t walk, and get your copy of The Panda Chronicles Book 8: The Pinky Defense!
Bob T Panda

Isn’t this just perfectly pinky?

Fabulously Furry Friday

We need a good laugh. really, we do. Things keep going beyond the “now he’s really done it” stage.  I think tRump went beyond that “point” on the day he announced his candidacy.

Sigh.

I have not quit resisting, but right now, I think we need a few pandas to show us the way.

Viva Les Pandas!

Do NOT mess with Pinky and the Meihems!

do the right thing.

The Power of the Poof. Oh, if only!

day after

Remember the song “The Eve of Destruction”? That’s what today feels like.

whipped cream

Can I have EXTRA extra whipped cream?

Um…I’ll try to be funnier next week.

Panda on!

Okay, Now REALLY announcing the Torch Bears

Sorry for the false anticipation, for leading you on, leading you astray. Wait a minute! I’m proud to lead you astray, in a good pandy sort of way, of course! Today I am REALLY going to reveal who the Torch Bears for 2018 are! Honest! But first (OOOO! I KNEW she was going to do this!!!!) If you haven’t read my latest fractured fairy tale over on The Whidbey island Arts Council blog, you should do it NOW.

And now, without any further ado about nothing, Here are the TORCH BEARS!!!!

Uh oh! has there been Russian tampering with the selection of the Torch Bears?

Announcing: The 2018 Torch Bears

Move over Giant Panda Global Awards! THIS is where the money is! The Torch Bears ! The most coveted honor in all of Pandyland is to be selected as Torch Bears for the Panda Olympic Games! Needless to say, the competition is very fierce and there is ample opportunity for skullduggery!

I can hardly STAND the suspense! Tell us, won’t you please, who will be this year’s Torch Bears …

The Panda Olympics presents…

Okay…we are going to keep you in suspense just a little while longer! But never fear! We will tell you…um…sooner or later!

BTW, Did anyone watch Bebe Maurice’s debut yesterday? I believe Pinky has some serious competition in the attitude/icon department. Just saying.

Cue the Torch Bears!

As we prepare to launch another stellar performance in the Panda Olympics, we have a few more encore antics from the Torch Bears! As you may recall from several years ago, the torch bears attempted to replace their torches with something that would look sort of “torchy” from a distance, because they had…um…sold the torches on eBay before they actually lit the Olympic flame.

Oopsie. That could have happened to anyone!!!!

But before we have a visit with the torch bears, here’s a link to my latest post for The Whidbey Island Arts Council. It’s a modern retelling of Cinderella, to get folks in the mood for an event on the island next week: The Bohemian Ball. The story is a bit long, but I hope you’ll read it and that you enjoy it! Cheers. And if you’re on or near Whidbey Island next Thursday, maybe you’ll put on your dancing shoes, fire up the magic carriage, and party like a panda! (Author’s disclosure: There are no pandas in this story, but there is a cat)

Now….Cue the Torch Bears!!!!

Pandanastics star, PO of Atlanta Zoo, practices for the Olympics, while the Torch Bears continue their around the world journey. Where will they turn up next? Note: this ‘toon was written before Pinky poofed Po and the Meihems into becoming girls.

torch bears, money, selling olympic torch

but now what will they do when they get to the Olympics?…..stay tuned!

Wait…what little Paris incident???…Oh…this one…

Never underestimate the power of a good “fart joke”

Stay tuned for the exciting conclusion of this story!

Oh, those Torch bears!

In other VERY IMPORTANT news, the proof copy of The Pinky Defense is on it’s way, so I hope to be able to have My Pinky’s new book available by the end of the month. And remember, Mitten’s definitely does not want you to buy this book! You know what to do!
