We all love pandas. And we all love panda satire. (okay, I’m stretching the point a little, but just be patient with me.) So if you are here, and reading this blog, I think we can agree that we have at least one thing in common. Pandas.
But now, let’s have a word from reality…
I’m guessing that we all have differing opinions on some things and that’s okay. Every once in a while, I make someone mad because I put words in my pandas’ mouths that disagree with what the reader believes and that’s okay too.
Today, the Supreme Court agreed that any two people in this country can get married and that their marriage will be recognized throughout the country. I think that’s marvelous. I myself have no intention of getting married, but that has been my right to get married or not for my whole life. I have friends and family who this has not been their good fortune, to have this as their decision to do or not. But now they have that right and I say huzzah!
The cynic in me says that as the years and decades go by, same sex couples will discover the rights of divorce, child custody and community property, but perhaps that’s as it should be. Why should heterosexual couples have all the fun?
The pandas have nothing to say about this, at least not yet. The general atmosphere in the pandy kindy is one of celebrations. After all, it’s really hard to tell what sex pandas are, let alone whether they are the same sex or not.
This political season promises to be an even more acrimonious one than those that preceded it. I will do my best to only make fun of the things that people actually say and do, and so far it seems like this is going to be a bonanza year for satire. If I make something up, I will try to make sure that it is rooted in reality, and not just me saying something nasty about someone whose politics I disagree with.
Okay. enough of this serious crap. Let’s have fun with pandas! Vote Pinky 2016!
BTW, you can show your support for Pinky by buying Vote Pinky merchandise at my pandyland store. Huzzah!
Be the Bear,
Bob T. Panda
woooww… gorgeous!! loving that vignette … I love the car, and the young pandas dressed as clowns, and those little pannas with flags, and their faces .. all smiling … is a perfect picture,
but … my support is for Pinky, my heart is with Pinky. J’adore Pinky. all ’bout Pinky, all the time :-))
I don’t want to start a panic, but I think that maybe Pinky is trying to hack into my computer! I am afraid she is going to get up to some mischief. She has obviously already ensnared the minds of all who see her. We are ALL powerless before her exalted Pinky self. I tried to stay true to Mr Wu, but poo! Pinky had got me under her spell.
I love pandas in clown costumes too. I wonder why all those pandas are so happy. Could they have been paid to be there? Stay tuned!
Politics! Presidents! Pandas! I’m going to explode with excitement!!
So happy to see Mr Wu back as a cub reporter 🙂
I missed Mr Wu. Had to find a way to have him back until his next case with Inspector Panda starts. Pinky is getting out of control, and there may be some…um…thought amongst the rest of the pandas that she needs to be reined in.
It occurs to me that, if all pandas were actually gay, especially the ones in zoos, it would go a long way towards explaining their difficulties in procreation. Just sayin’.
That would explain a lot.
I say! Bob looks very handsome!
Why shucks! *blushes*thank you! Maybe this time I’ll get more than 3 votes!
