Who doesn’t love whipped cream? And who doesn’t look forward to Starbucks’ special holiday drinks, or those red cups?!? Now, for those that know me well, they know that I worked at *$ many moons ago, and even though I have departed their shores some 28 (almost 29!!!) years ago, I still harbor…um… a little bit of a grudge against them. But I have to say, this story had me rooting for them, or at least their hard working baristas…Twitter followers made a relevant point, that if DJT supporters wanted to BOYCOTT Starbucks, they were…um…going about it in somewhat ineffective way.
And dude…they weren’t discriminating against you by serving you slowly. It takes time to make a half caff triple pandachino with part non fat milk and extra syrup and extra whipped cream. And you were standing behind that person. If you want your coffee fast, go to a gas station. (And I still don’t know how the barista would know who you voted for, in order to serve you more slowly.)
So I made a ‘toon
celebrating chronicling the event.

And don’t forget, you can get any of the WeREndangered cups from my cafe press store: Pandyland
Who can pass up on extra whippy cream, even if it meant that you’d have to ingest a few UFOs. LOL!!
I know, right? Heh!
You are awesome. This gave me yuuge laughs too.
Snort! Thank you bigly!
I laughed bigly.
It was yuge! I mean YUUUUUGE! Thank you!
James Gillray and William Hogarth have nothing on Panda satire! This election has hit some of us hard; and political satire is a wonderful way to caricature and embrace if not celebrate the ludicrous. Thanks!
Ooo! Being compared with Hogarth! I must go polish my gold stars!
Absolutely gross, but yugely funny!
Yuge! And gross is funny. Ask any 6th grader.
Obviously you are channeling your disappointment and despair into your art and humor. I had a real (furry panda) belly laugh over this one! Keep it up. As my mother used to (frequently) say: This too shall pass.
It will, it will. Channeling my frustration and fear is a good thing.
I’ll take 3 ?
Heh! More whippy!
I love Bob The Barista with his adorable apron and Mehitabel always looks so smart when she goes out for coffee 🙂
Glad I didn’t have a mouthful of coffee when I read this – I would have choked – and that’s not just because of the dead flies! I believe the lure of extra whippy cream has been the destruction of many civilisations.
The last line is great!
One of your best!! Thanks so much for the much needed laughs 🙂
I have to say, I was rather pleased with myself for this one. And funny thing, both Bob and I have been baristas! Go figure. What a coincidence.
I, too, got YUGE giggles from this one Bob! BTW, no one ever told us exactly WHAT is in all that extra whippy cream that was promised, did they?
No, they did not, but there will always be those who want more of it than anyone else. And all those voters in states that went for drumpf and are heavily dependent on Medicaid are now saying, “wait a minute. We didn’t think you were going to cancel OUR insurance.”
Um…well, that’s what you voted for.
Came for satirical humor. Left satisfied.
So glad. Hope you are well. Too many sadnesses piled on one another, but panda satire does it’s best to lift spirits.
Thank ya’ , Ma’am; very kind of you to say. It’s appreciated.
Been thinking of you. Peace. The pandas have your back.
