Seems like a good time for this…

The Impeachment proceedings are heating up! I overheard this “actual discussion” on Twitter*

*Possibly paraphrased

GOP: You have to hold a vote on impeachment or it’s not real!
DEMS: No we don’t. It says in the Constitution that if we say it’s an Impeachment investigation, that’s what it is.
GOP: We will hold our breath and scream and kick our feet until you do!
DEMS: Go Ahead.

Some time passes, with many revelatory closed door hearings…

DEMS: Now that we’ve had out investigation, we’re going to hold a vote, so we can agree on rules and procedure for the public hearings and reports.
GOP: See? we knew you had to hold a vote!
DEMS: It’s for the next phase of the inquiry and hearings. It has nothing to do with whether there the previous hearings were a legitimate impeachment inquiry.
GOP: FAKE FAKE FAKE FAKE! WITCH HUNT! LALALALA WE CAN’T HEAR YOU.
DEMS: sigh..first witness…

But what does Nixon’s ghost have to say about all this?

Can’t ghosts have opinions too?

“And they called ME a crook!”

Um…

All together now!

If Pinky wins the 2020 election, can we have panda-gate?

Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!

This one doesn’t have anything to do with Nixon, but it kind of sums up politics today, amIright?

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

Get your popcorn and your programs! Can’t tell the un-indicted co-conspirators without a program!

Panda On

More from Nixon’s ghost, coming next week!

Oh geez…he’s back again.

Will our national nightmare ever end? Just when we think we MUST have hit bottom, we find out there are yet depths that HWMNBN can sink to. All I can say is, if I am to go into a dissidents camp for dissenters to the reign of terror, I hope I get to be in one with Joyce White Vance. She’s smart, she’s funny, and who would ever have thought that a former prosecutor would have groupies?

Of course, you know who had to drop in with more comments. In this case, I think he has a good point.

If Pinky wins the 2020 election, can we have panda-gate?

Be the bear, and keep the faith!

I Bet Nixon Never Put His Hand on Anyone’s Knee

You knew that the Ghost of Nixon would not be able to resist commenting on the current emanations coming forth from the clown car that is 45’s house of cards. Really, I don’t know how much more of this we can take! I just read that 45’s defense is the “We don’t think Nixon should have been impeached” defense. What happens when 45 declares he is not going to “co-operate” with the Impeachment Inquiry? I guess we are about to find out!

But as far as we can see, we think he’s…

All together now!

Panda on!

What the Fuzz! It’s Impeachment Day!

OOPS! I forgot to set this up last night, as I am still recovering from my little bout of the flu. So here we are, just a little late. 😬🙄 In other news, after having this computer since 2011, I JUST figured out how to add emojis to text this year! Innovation!

But on to the NOOZ!

HWMNBN is having an absolute meltdown since Miss Nancy declared that Impeachment Season was open! While 45 continues to obstruct in plain sight, The House marches on, like the panda kindergarten at the cuppycake bar! Needless to say, we here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire will be reporting the panda (and cat!!!) view of the proceedings!

But enough stalling! It’s Impeachment Day! Everybody drink!

It’s been a long time coming. Hope he’ll be a looooong time gone!

Buckle up, Bears!

We Have All Been Here Before…

Despite the fact I sometimes can’t remember where I left my keys, I still remember that August day in 1974 when I watched Nixon resign. I remember being thrilled and scared and maybe a little horrified, that the President was resigning, because he knew he was guilty of the crimes he was about to be impeached for.

Nixon was guilty, but his time in the White House was not without merit!

How quaint his crimes look compared to the current occupier of the People’s House. Fortunately, Nixon’s Ghost occasionally drops by at ZooNooZ to enlighten Bob and Mehitabel, and provide context for 45’s reign of corruption.

Can’t ghosts have opinions too?

Um…

“And they called ME a crook!”

Editor’s note: These ‘toons are from a year ago. How about it, MacArthur Foundation Fellowship folks… am I a (stable) GENIUS or what??? Do you need my phone number for next year?

And lest we forget that there STILL is no MacArthur Grant for Panda Satire….

Perfect Impeachment Weather!

Panda On, Everyone!

Congratulations to Lynda Barry who actually DID win a MacArthur Fellowship! If you haven’t read any of her work, do it now!

Happy Impeachment Day

I’m taking today’s ‘toon, a little out of order, because, although I wrote it a couple weeks ago, today it is suddenly relevant. I don’t know how all this is going to proceed. Watching Nancy Pelosi give her speech gave me all the feelings. Pride, fear, love of country, hope for the future, fear that there is still time for HWMNBN to do far more damage than he has already done.

For the first time since tRump came down the escalator to announce his candidacy, I have some hope. Having young people like Greta Thunberg speaking out on the environment, and all those young people fighting for sensible gun regulations, gives me hope for the future. All of the forces of darkness, many of them in our own government, make me very afraid.

But now, it’s time to see what pandas and cats have to say about IMPEACHMENT!

Why do I feel like I’m watching one of the Godfather movies when 45 is talking?

Panda on, like you;’ve never pandaed before!

Peace, or Something Like It

The news continues to be overly news-y, if you want my opinion, and even if you don’t! To cheer you up, this story was making the rounds a little while ago: The Cheeto in Chief was claiming that he had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Um…there seems to be some information that that might not exactly be the case.

Of course, where Cheeto goes, Mittens is sure to follow.

Who could have done this????

Be the Bear!

Putting the “I” in Impeachment!

Fight the Humor Deficit! Make fun of people on Twidder!

I have to admit that I have come to like Twidder more than I do Fezbook. Maybe it’s because Fezbook has come to seem kind of unwieldy. I can’t easily find all the comments from people that are actually relevant to a discussion I am having with them, because Fezbook seems to want to give me hundreds of obscure notifications for every one that is part of an ongoing discussion with friends.

Meanwhile over on Twidder, I get a healthy (um…maybe not) dose of news, connection with other panda fans, and connections with other people in the kid lit and writing communities at large. And then there are the snarky parody accounts…

We must fight the humor deficit with every pun at our disposal!!!!

What’s that you say, Bob? He has responsibilities?

And meanwhile, we are about to launch the next phase of the Panda Pin Project over at Kickstarter! If you’ve been following along, you’ll see that it’s going to launch at noon (PDT) today!!! So get ready…get set…not yet…this link is just a preview until the project launches at noon!

Pinky is in the HOUSE! (At least till Mommee talks to Nancy)

Oopsie. I think maybe Pinky is in the wrong House.

Surely you knew there would be a phone call from THE House to the PANDA House.

Pinky is in the House!!!!

Get Speaker Nancy on the phone!

Be the Bear!
