I seem to be having some technical difficulties, but hopefully, they will sort themselves out (and by themselves, I mean my very capable and accessible web guru, Nate Hoffelder who writes The Digital Reader and has a web guru business)
I wonder if some of my problems are due to my reluctance to give up the old editing interface that I’ve been using for the past 10 years, and move on to the new WordPress way of doing things….sigh…
Anyway….Pinky still has more questions to answer!
I am trying the newfangled editing thingie, and I guess I don’t totally hate it. Maybe I will even get used to it in a few weeks!
We often get to things later, rather than sooner, but we usually get to them sooner or later! So p[ut your paws together, and give a warm Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire Lunar New Year HUZZAH! for…
The Year of the Ox! ( As presented by the Panda Kindergarten!)
Here’s something to take your mind off of things: On Sunday, I alluded to a special offering that will be appearing on the Kickstarter project The Effervescent Adventures of Fight Bunny. It’s a project to bring an all ages graphic novel to life, and with only 9 days left on their campaign they are a little over $6,000 from their goal. Because 2021, I still feel the need to stab things repeatedly with very sharp needles, so I made a felty Fight Bunny, and offered it to them to help them towards reaching their funding goal.
There will only be one Fight Bunny (because, ya know, not taking someone else’s intellectual property to make money!) Visit their project page and scroll down the page to see the reward listing (under my name, I think) to choose this unique felty. Fight Bunny is between 3-4″ tall. I think this is going to be a fun book and if the felty is out of your budget, the book is being offered both in print and as an ebook. Also FIGHT BUNNY PINS!!! Check it out!
And now, Today’s ‘toon!
Mei and Tian2 contemplate the joys of the not very empty nest. (Grizzly bears take up a lot of room!)
Panda on for at least another 24 hours!

BTW: There are some new designs on the Redbubble website! They are masks suitable for formal occasions!
Way back when, we predicted Pardon Palooza and wouldn’t you know, now it is coming to pass!
Meanwhile, Frank and Mikey are going through the marshymallows like they’re going out of style, because Mikey’s keep bursting into flames over the dumpster fire. The dumpster fire is heating way up too, as Mittens cannot believe he didn’t win, or at least that’s what he says. Meanwhile, he’s raking in cash from mostly small dollar donors, who might do well to put those $10 and $25 contributions away to buy stuff from the hospital gift store when they go in for COVID 19 after they attend another one of his super spreader events.
But hey! What about those Sunday ‘toons you promised?
I’m sure they are all innocent, just like Mittens!
Did we not say he’d be selling pardons back in March? We even had Impeachment on the calendar back in 2019!
Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!
It’s been a long time coming. Hope he’ll be a looooong time gone!
I can totally see you know who doing this.
What did Mr. Bun Know and when did he know it?
Tune in tomorrow when we begin a rebroadcast of 101 Baby Pandas! Introducing Bebe Maurice, and starring Inspector Panda, Mr Wu, and Babette de Panda, International panda of Mystery!
Oh dear! Beary Poppins has his paws full for sure! When he and Mikey first hatched this scheme to send Frank to the Panda House, where there was sure to be lots of donuts and cuppycakes (not to mention hot cocoa with those little marshymallows) They never imagined that Frank would actually have to do any work!
Where Six and Sebben roam, chaos is sure to follow!
Gosh I really hate to leave you on this cliffhanger for the weekend, but…
31 days of Pandas starts in a couple weeks! Huzzah!
Be the Bear!

Don’t forget The PDXwildlife auction is going on! Lots of things to bid on including a set of Panda Chronicle Face Masks made by One Fine Panda (who is not me) and a Mommee Mei and Biscuit Felty!
Bears do NOT have things easy. For one thing there are not nearly the number of unattended picnic baskets left in easy reach of bears that there should be, and the dearth of unlocked cars with boxes of donuts left enticingly in plain view is just shocking. (Bears have an excellent sense of smell, you know.)
But the person who put a tRUmp sticker on the tracking collar of a black bear in Asheville, North Carolina has gone several steps too far. AS a spokes bear for the organization from Help Asheville Bears (HAB) said, that the person responsible for the sticker placement had “apologized for their actions and promised not to have any contact with any bears in the future.”
One does wonder about the promise to “not have any contact with bears in the future”…
Surely they didn’t mean Frank and Mikey! Who could resist them?
Nobody could resist Frank or Mikey! Dis definitely will not stand!

Hey! it’s Six and Sebben’s Birthday today! Tune in on Sunday for all Six and Sebben, all the time! (Pinky MIGHT have hogged an extra Sunday ‘toon round up!)
While we wait, here is a conversation that was overheard outside the playroom of Six and Sebben…
Sebben: it’s our birfday today! will we get cakes?
Six: well, it is my birfday an’ not yoors.
Sebben: what you mean it’s not my birfday? wee is twins
Six: dat’s just what mommee and daddee told yoo.
Sebben: well I get cake an’ pressies.
Six: no yoo don’t.
Sebben: I am gonna ask mommee.
Six: go ‘head. shee’ll tell yoo. she din’t want to tell yoo before, but no yoo are old enough to know
Sebben: know what?
Six: I can say no more
Sebben: MOMMEEEEEEE!!!! six is being meanie again!!!
Lun Lun: sigh…now what?
The week of torturing you till the winner of the race was revealed is finally OVER! (Not to mention for those of you who were wondering what Six poured onto the track!)
There is news from the DC Panda House, but I’ll save it till after today’s ‘toon. If I make you wait any longer, you’ll show up at my house with burning pitchforks!
As they race toward the finish line…
That’s one heck of a lot of ear wax!!!
Hee hee! Ear wax! I bet no one thought of that!!!!
Now, on to the panda den!
So far so good. It’s possible that by the time this publishes, there will be a new baby panda in the cubby den. The latest report from the folks with their eyes on the ultrasound sounds very hopeful. Pseudo thumbs crossed!
Be the Bear!
