One Last Day to Celebrate Pinky and Bubba!

I can hardly believe that birthday week for our most favorite bears is almost over. Rumor has it that Pinky is not having a party this year, because she might, um…have a cuppycake in da oven. Won’t that be interesting? because I have chosen (yes, I do get to choose this) to kind of suspend my pandas in time, on a sliding scale, Having Pinky suddenly become a mum, might be too much for my tortured brain.

Meanwhile, my bout of flu last week seems to be gone, just in time for smoke to fill our skies, thanks to wildfires in Washington, Oregon and Canada. Oh, and there is the little matter of the revelations by 45’s personal (former) attorney, not to mention the conviction of his former campaign manager. Are we watching the news or a rerun of The Sopranos? Really, it’s kind of hard to tell.

So let’s have a few laughs and a cuppycake (or three) with Pinky and Bubba!

Is this any way to treat our Nation’s most adorable icon?

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

Just a reminder: repeat after me: this is fiction.

What could be better than a bear and her mouse?

The Spirit of Halloweens yet to come is not a spirit to be messed with, right?

Could this be Pinky’s future office? Pinky: may i remind you, you should have voted for me!

I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.

And of course, one of my all time favorites…

See? I told you it was broken!

Be careful Ping Ping! The Panda House might not be…um…completely safe.

Ha ha! Oh that Pinky!

More Celebrations of Pinky! (and Bubba!!!!!)

I am a bit under the weather here, but today I was able to drag my sorry, fuzzy butt out of bed and prepare today’s Celebration of Pinky! I’m sure that a good dose of Pinky will be just the medicine I need, what with outrage and laughter being known as the best medicine. Who said anything about outrage? Well, have you listened to the news today?

Nuff said about THAT!!!! Let’s see what the Pinky File has for us today!

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

Pandas are standing by to take your calls!

And it was ever thus….

Bubba’s first feature role!

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

Feed me, Mama!

Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.

Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!

What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!

Be sure to tune in next week for the continuation of Pinky in Wonderland and more ‘toons about Pinky and Bubba!

Panda On!

It’s Pinky’s (AND Bubba’s) Birthday Season

Yes, we are in the fogs of August, here in the other Washington, and you know what that means! It’s Pinky’s (and Bubba’s) birthday month, so we will be featuring ‘toons about Pinky and  Bubba all month long!

Huzzah!

But first, a poem, by Pinky, to celebrate the occasion:

Thirty days, has September
Why dis is, i can’t remember.
august is da monf of ME
its days number thirty three.

boo boo says dis isn’t true
but what does his truth have to do
wif princess pandas such as me,
cause i need at least thirty three

days to celebrate my birth,
because i know what i am  worth.

da monf dat brought us such meihem!

oh, an’ also cuzzin wu
a minor monf, july, it’s true.
so hurry up an’ buy me presents
an’ dose cards dat you has sent us.

boo boo says it’s his monf too,
but i am sure dis can’t be true.
so bake a cake so we can party
cause august is da monf of pinky!

by pinky panda, a really good pome, dat mostly rhymes.

Fabulous Furry Friday…um I mean FriBEI!!!!

We are headed in to the high season of the panda birthday season, and it is never too early to start celebrating the July 29th birthday of the one, the only, the most adorable panda EBBER, the real Wu Self! He was my first baby panda, and so he’ll always be most special to me. Pinky may rant and rage about this, but what can I say? My heart will always belong to Wu!

Let’s get started! WuWuWuWu WU-HOOOOOOO!

“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”

“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “

Thank you all for coming! Buy my book here!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of BooBeer!

“You are right and Wu is wrong…I’ll never do it again, mommy.”

You can read all about ALL of Mr. Wu’s adventures in his very own (almost Pinky free) book, The Panda Chronicles Book 4: The Book of Wu, available at a computer terminal near you!

And be sure to check out my new Pandreon Page, for those of you who would like to do more to support panda satire! It comes with a super secret page just for panda satire supporters!

Keep supporting panda satire, calling your Congressional representatives, and fighting fascism and injustice! It’s a tough job, but somebody’s gotta do it.

BE THE BEAR!

Fabulous Furry FriBei the 13th

From now on, Fabulous Furry Friday will be known as Fabulous Furry FriBei, in honor of our favorite DC Panda boy, Bei Bei, known to his Panda Chronicle Fans as Bubba!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, an alert Twidder friend posted this news about three suspected rhino poachers being…wait for it…eaten by lions! The original story I saw was by The New York Post, which is sometimes…um… of questionable veracity, but when I searched for the story this morning, I found citations by the NY Times and the BBC, among others, so, I’m going with it! Of course, that brings to mind this group of ‘toons chronicling another instance of animals taking matter into their own paws.

Karma is such a bitch!

And our favorite…Whatever Happened to KittySue?

Want to know how KittySue “disappeared? Buy my book The Pinky Defense and find out! Buy the rest of them while your at it! Paper doesn’t grow on trees, you know! 😀

We are heading in to American Panda birthday season! Stay tuned to celebrate all our junior pandas!

While we are on the topic of making the world safer for animals, we also must bid a not so fond farewell to Scott Pruitt, former “head” of the EPA (Eradication of Population Agency) as his petty (and not so petty) alleged thievery got to be too embarrassing for #45 in the run up to the 2018 elections. Never fear, because you know who wants to nominate an actual coal industry lobbyist to the post. It’s not like we thought things were going to get better, right?

Fabulous Furry Friday Presents…

I’m sure there are people who have most of this week off, or at least part of it off any way, because of the July 4th holiday. That is not the case here, because
A) I am self employed
B) If I took a week off people would be like, “where are my pandas??? I NEED my PANDAS!!!!!!

But don’t cry for me Argentina…

If I had a week off, what in the heck would I do with it? Draw pandas? Clean my house (nah…never that! How do you think I have so much time to draw pandas?)

Meanwhile, here is a holiday classic for the 4th of July!

uh. oh.

In addition to the #secondcivilwarletter posts over at Twidder, we couldn’t help but notice a certain Senator lamenting that lack of civility and a perfidious preponderance of profanity (pretty good alliteration, wouldn’t you say?) So, in answer, we offer this ‘toon!

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

And of course, once again, it is time for the Tour d’France to take place, and we have this to say about that, as well as other selfie opportunities!

Hey! Get out of the way!

Much better to take a selfie with pandas!

You know we’re just kidding about this, right?

AAAAAAhhhHHHHHH!

I really had no idea what she was up to.

And of course, who could forget Pinky’s visit to the White House?

Mei should not be getting all excited like this in her condition!

Meanwhile, the National Zoo is on Mei Watch. We hope she has a happy, healthy cubby (or two!) but no matter what, we hope that she will continue being her lovable self right in DC. There have been reports that Bao Bao herself might be on pregnancy watch. We shall see!

Oh, for a Friday that would be Fabulous again.

So…if I went to bed, turned out the lights, with the covers over my head, and I shut my eyes really really really really tightly, when I woke up in the morning, would all that has been going on, turn out to be just a bad dream?

No…I didn’t think so.

The atrocities are piling up too quickly for me to discuss here, but if you really want to have them spelled out for you (intelligently and insightfully) in one place, check out Amy Siskind’s podcast The Weekly List, accessible from the website of the same name. Other podcasts I’m listening to are Pod Save America, Lovett or Leave it, as well as the rebroadcasts of The Rachel Maddow Show. I’m not sure whether listening to these things is helping my mental health, but I do feel a lot better informed. News and analysis from people who are smart, funny, and knowledgeable about politics. I know no one here watches Foxy News.

But enough reality already! Let’s have some pandas, as we await the really important news of the day: Is Mei Xiang going to have another cubby or two?

we are still hoping for a panda cub trifecta

Hey! watch where you put that torch!

Despite the fact that Bob is still wearing his vacation outfit, he’s back and ready to report!

Sometimes real life news stories make it Just. Too. Easy

truth

Foxxy “News” lies like a rug.

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

Don’t let you know who take all the whippy cream!

Pandas RESIST!!!!

Fabulous Furry Friday

Oh my…I’m running on empty here, as I’m sure many of you are too. I have some ideas about raising some money to help the efforts at the border to help these kids and parents who have been forcibly separated, but it’s going to have to wait till our Sunday post.

Meanwhile, we do need a little humor to get us through this, so here it is:

let there be cake!

Or how about some cuppycakes?

Panda middle school!

THIS is your brain on pandas. Any questions?

Here come the pandas!

Reports of possible cubby activity in DC have been coming in to my Twidder and Fezbook feeds. Let’s hope no one tells ICE or the Predator in Chief.

Pandas #RESIST!

Don’t You Be Talking Smack About Unka Justin!

Dis. Will. Not. STAND!!!!!!!!!

Nobody, but nobody gets to talk smack about Unka Justin! And so, Fabulous Furry Friday revisits the Canadian Pandas, because we LOVE Unka Justin! Panda on, good buddies to the north!

Oh Panada, Oh Panada, how tasty are your maple leaves….

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?

Are you SURE you wouldn’t like to vote for Bob?

There may be political concussions!

And don’t we all feel this way when we think about President Mittens?

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

If you thought things were already crazy, I have a feeling we haven’t seen anything yet. Hold on to your cuppycakes!

Be the Bear!
