While the news makes it feel more like Sunday, Bloody Sunday instead of Sunday Funday, here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we are dedicated to bringing you fun with pandas!
A quick note: We are ready to start taking orders for more felty pandas! All the information can be found on the Buy Stuff With Pandas page, which you can find right here! You can also order the first group of Panda Chronicle themed Washi tape!
Pinky is a Star (not to mention a icon) and she is ready to be your emotional support panda…well, if you let her be president she will! Wearing her signature tutu and her tiara, Pinky is ready for you to grant her all her wildest dreams. hey! This is Pinky we are talking about. You didn’t think she was here to serve you, did you?
But now, let’s jump into the panda way-back bus and see what encore presentations there are for your Sunday relaxation!
Oh dear….are you going to leave her there?
There must be cake!
Is this any way to treat our Nation’s most adorable icon?
The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.
But at least Pinky didn’t FLUNK CAKE!!!!!
“Oh yeah…dere MIGHT be one or two other pandas in it, but I can’t remember who.”
Never say “no” to Pinky!
And it was ever thus….
Meihem, not Mayhem.
Well, they did hang their coats up.
Introducing Princess Dumpling
Wait a minute…triplets??????
We hope you enjoyed a completely Mittens free Sunday! I sure needed that and I bet you did too! Don’t forget to check out the new line up on theBuy Stuff with Pandas Page!
Yesterday’s ‘toon made me think about all the other occasions that Mei Xiang delivered some resolutions for Pinky, so I thought that today’s ‘toon round up could feature those ‘toons! (Pinky: I don’t know why! I’m already perfect!)
Is Pinky perfect? You be the judge!
You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….
Once again proving the intransigence of Pinky, and the omnipotence of Mommy Mei
Pinky: “rules are for other pandas.”
Bubba: my resolution was just to chew my food more, an’ mebbee not eat so much frosting. Ping: ping!
This one is not “resolution” based, but is one of my all time favorites!
Wow! 31 Days of Pandas is on the downhill slide once again! I hope it’s been as much fun for yours it was for me to revisit these classics of panda satire! January will feel almost like a vacation since I won’t have to post every day!
Where we’re at….
I’ll be back on my schedule of new ‘toons every Tuesday and Thursday, and a selection of favorite ‘toons from the archives on Sundays. In January, our encore presentations will focus on the year in review, as I look back to see what was going on each month of the year.
You might have noticed that I didn’t not get around to putting out a new book in January of 2019, and before I knew it, it was December! How the heck did THAT happen? Well, I guess we were all a bit distracted by the fall of Democracy and the various crimes in plain sight by HWMNBN. It was suggested to me, that I look at the ‘toons from 2018 & 2019, and do a compilation on ‘toons about politics! I think that could be very instructive!
I am in the midst of my usual year end practice of looking where I’ve been, and figuring out where I’m going. The political mess has led me to spend too much time raging on Twitter and seeing if You Know Who has had a stroke or committed any overt acts of violence in public. It’s a dilemma: I want to hang out with you all, but I also need to get paintings, pandas (and of course needle felted pandas!!!!) done. So, no more mornings on the internet. Hanging out with you all will be my reward at the end of the day after I’ve actually gotten something done!
Meanwhile, let’s see what Pinky and Bubba are up to. Isn’t it time for Pinky to get her list of resolutions for the new year from mommee?
You would think Pinky would already have improved her behavior by now…
Breaking Nooz! Hao Hao of Pairi Daiza in Belgium has given birth to twins. So far, all is going well. They look very round (yay!) and the twin switching seems to be going well! Congratulations to Hao Hao and her entire team and family!
…Now, it seems like there is another Panda Bearday coming up right around then, but I just can’t remember who it is….Heh!
What’s that? I can’t hear you!
Don’t tell me you’re surprised.
Oh yeah…Pinky has a birthday too! I guess we’ll have to feature them both!
And it was ever thus….
One for Pinky, and one for Bubba….
He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!
Oh dear….are you going to leave her there?
Feed me, Mama!
Really, Pinky….It’s not nice to tease your little brother.
Bubba: i don’ fink it is fair. almost all my ‘toons has pinky in dem!
Pinky: Suck it up, boo boo!
Bubba: don’ call mee boo boo!
What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!
Bubba was really hitting the frosting in this next ‘toon, but it shows the essential difference between Pinky and Bubba!
You better watch out….
Due to the excessive cruelty of the news this week, I think we deserve a couple more, don’t you?
And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…
I’m ready for my close up!
I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.
See? I told you it was broken!
I could not resist including the cute-o-meter! I hope this week is better than last week, but I really don’t have much hope of that. Hope this week’s offerings help!
A big thanks to all of the fans and friends of Bubba (and Ping Ping!!!!) who have signed up to and contributed to the latest Pin Project! We are truly in the home stretch now, with the project closing down tomorrow at Noon PDT! I’m very excited about the pin and patch designs and can hardly wait to see them and hold them in my paws!
Pandas are standing by to fulfill your every wish!
I thought mommee hid Pinky’s magical wand!
Head on over to Kickstarter now, and get your Bubba (and Ping Ping!!!) pin today!
I’m feeling a little short on hope, to be honest. It feels like the world is spinning out of control and that the proliferation of evil is increasing exponentially, and those that bring hope and joy and help and comfort into the world have to run triple time with no hope of catching up. There are so many holes in the dam and we just don’t have enough fingers. My heart goes out to the people of New Zealand who have received our unwanted evil export of hate and violence.
Our pathetic excuse of a president says white extremist violence isn’t a thing, and the clueless Howard Schultz thinks that all the people booing and criticizing him means that the people really want him and are excited. Wrong on both counts, you clueless numpties.
But we have to keep hoping, until there is no hope left. Don’t we?
It was #NationalPandaDay yesterday…let’s have some pandas.
Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po! (This was before we knew the Meihems and Po were girls)
In the words of Winnie ther Pooh, “I think it’s time for a little something.
How many times do we have to remind you….
Nothing gets my spirits up more than baby Pinky!
Never say “No” to a Pinky!
Could Mama Mei Xiang really be contemplating letting Pinky loose on the pandy kindy?
Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.
