As if the global pandemic was not enough pain for those of us in North America, the Canadian pandas are going to be going back to China. Their bamboo, which is about 99% of their diet, comes from China, flown in every couple days (or is it once a week? I can’t remember and I am too lazy to look it up.) has been hard to come by, what with the flight reductions during the pandemic. Most pandas have a preference for the bamboo they like to eat, and even if the US and Canada weren’t having their own problems, you can’t switch out Seattle boo for Chengdu boo, no matter how convenient that would be.
So, Er Shun and Da Mao are heading back to China, much to our dismay.
Meanwhile, HWMNBN continues to throw tantrums, tell lies about the scope of the pandemic and I’m guessing, will be tweeting up a s**tstorm after the inspiring speech that President Barak Obama gave at the Virtual Commencement on Saturday. It was nice to be reminded what someone with empathy and intelligence sounds like.
But it’s Sunday and that means it’s time for some pandamonium! Let’s look back at the ‘toons about the Canadian pandas and the place they held in the world of Panda Satire!
Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?
“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”
What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?
Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!
Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?
Hey! watch where you put that torch!
It’s a good thing that Pinky taught Bubba how to use Skype!
Packing is such a chore! And a surprise visit from a friend can make it go so much faster!
The Long Goodbye, or “Toronto Farewell”
Mommee pandas have laser vision. Don’t even think you can hide, Bubba.
There’s always time for another cupcake!!!
So THAT’S how Pinky got there so quickly!
I wonder what this button over here does….AAAAAHHHHHHHH!
By the way, it sounds like masks are shipping over at Redbubble! If you need some masks, wouldn’t you breathe a little easier if they had pandas on them?
Be(e) the Bear!
