There is some pretty foul air floating around DC. could it be…

…FREEDOM GAS?????

Ahem…You Know Who just officially “launched” his reelection campaign, although how you can tell it from his business as usual, I just don’t know. Mr. Badger suggested that I not listen to the news any more, so that my blood pressure doesn’t shoot through the roof, and I don’t have nightmares about the concentration camps at the border.

But if I did that, I wouldn’t have heard this story to make fun of (because we DO need an extra dose of humor in our lives, especially at times like this!)

What’s that smell? Could it be…The smell of FREEDOM??

You gotta STOP Hey! What’s that sound…

I SWEAR I DID NOT MAKE THIS UP!!!!

We’re Sorry, So Sorry! (Heh!)

What can I say? I’m an undisciplined naughty panda who drew an obnoxious Faux News “host” getting nailed by 300 pounds of elephant poo. So far, there is not a law against that. I’m not saying that there won’t be a law sometime (soon!!!!) in the future when drawing unflattering pictures and situations of all the “president’s” men won’t be punishable by prison, but for the moment, I think I’m safe!

We solemnly swear, by all that is Pinky, that we will never  (well, hardly ever) write or draw anything this tasteless again.

Um…we might have had our fingers crossed behind our backs.

As the Net Closes, the Beast Growls Menacingly

We were afraid that the more crimes were revealed, the more the current occupier of the WH would become dangerous. Make no mistake, HWMNBN and his evil spokes minions are pulling out all the stops.

I mean, when you have an entire TV network repeating and magnifying your message, how can the rational part of the country counteract the misinformation?

Foxy News, your name is…um…mud.

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

Keep the faith, folks!

Free Speech or something like it…

When I listen to the things that come out of 45’s mouth (which I do as rarely as possible) I start to think that maybe this whole free speech thing is overrated. Then I smack my self on the head, and remind myself that free speech lets me express my honest displeasure with the powers that be, without the risk of getting thrown in prison for it.

But the operating principle of this “administration” seems to be, the speech of some gets to be freer than the speech of others.

I’m not sure how much more of this I can take.

PS: Don’t forget! Our Kickstarter is still gong on! I’ve recently added a new reward, and rewritten the project home page to make it (hopefully) less confusing. Seriously, every time I do this, in some ways it’s like the first time! :-}

“If the people hate me, it means they want me to run for president!”

Okay, I may be paraphrasing just the tiniest bit, but in several articles I read recently, Howard Schultz seems to think that the intensely negative response that his announcement of a possible presidential run means…are you ready? It means that “They Like Me! They really Like Me!!!

Um…no. That is not what it means. It means we think you are a deluded tool.

The people have spoken!

Meanwhile, I just got notice that I should have Pinky’s very own pins in my hot little hands by the end of this week. I apologize to those who hoped to have them in time for this weekend’s Pandamonium Convention in Memphis, but I probably won’t receive them till the end of the week. I will be getting them in the mail by the beginning of next week.

Here’s the photo the folks at Pin Game Strong sent me for a sneak peek:

Pinky’s official pin on Pinky’s official card!

If you missed the opportunity to get one of these pins while my kickstarter project was live, never fear! I ordered extra and after I’ve sent them off to all those folks, I’ll let you know how you can get your own Pinky Pin! Stay tuned for the next pin project, coming soon!

Stay tuned for the return of Frank and Mikey, later this week!

After the Mitten’s Tower sign, anything would be an improvement, wouldn’t it?

Well, maybe not this…

Has anyone checked Babette de Panda’s tax returns yet?

And what ABOUT that pesky thingie in the Constitution about not profiting from elected office?

“Hey! I’m still back here!”

Apparently #HowardsEnd (my new name for the erstwhile coffee billionaire would-be-presidential candidate) was “wowing” the crowds once again at the SXSW conference in Austin Texas. And by “wowing” I mean underwhelming the audience with his continued lack of any kind of policy specifics/visions for America other than, “Democrats are socialists”; “Everyone is mean to me because I’m rich,” and “Democrats are the real spoilers” Wah, wah, wah.

Is this what you mean by a “listening tour?” Be better Howard.

And now, a subject near and dear to me…

I can’t help it. I’m a Scorpio. We hold grudges. And when you get a Scorpio artist/writer/cartoonist with the power to make fun of those who have wronged them and never apologized, well, then! Then we have an excellent story line for some ‘toons, should, for example, they decide to run for president as an independent candidate.

Any similarities between this ‘toon and a certain undeclared presidential candidate are quite possibly intentional.

What WERE you thinking?

Is it starting already?

The State of the Pandas Address (especially Pinky!!!!)

Who wouldn’t want to listen to what these pandas have to say? I know I would!

Tune in now, as Pinky addresses Congress!

Even Nancy Pelosi listened enthusiastically!

Panda on!
BobT Panda

Tune in on Thursday for the dramatic conclusion. (there may be yelling.)

How do you spell “emergency collusion”?

What cunning plan has Pinky devised? Will they be able to sneak out of the house? Will Mommee Mei find out? Will Bubba be grounded? Has Bubba learned anything from Pinky? And what about Ping Ping?

Let’s find out!

I see trouble in my crystal ball…

Panda On!

Pinkstarter update: Pin design has been finalized, submitted and approved and the order is in. A team of pandas is standing by to make our pins! Stay tuned!

Please, not another ShutDown!

As some of you may know, I try to work a bit ahead on my ‘toons, so that power outages, snowpocalypses, and gallivanting around do not interfere with my schedule of posting ‘toons for your enjoyment. So, sometimes, they are a bit out of sync with what is going on out in the world.

But in this case, even though this series of ‘toons was about the ORIGINAL half-baked, harebrained, ill-advised shutdown, since we are on the eve of another potential shutdown, it is all too appropriate that I run this series now. Really, I hope the Congresspersons can keep HWMNBN from doing the foolish and destructive thing this time, but I have to say, I’m a tiny bit apprehensive. Fortunately, no one has figured out how to shut down the Panda Chronicles yet!

Let’s get these pandas on the road! There’s no time for a shutdown at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire!

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

BTW, I’m happy to say that the responses to my Kickstarter survey are rolling in! I just started the ordering process for the pins, so hopefully, by the time they get here, I should have the labels all ready to go and you will get your Pinky Pins quickly! I’ve already started designing Bubba’s pin and hope to be ready to launch that project by the end of March!
