Day 23: All I Want for Christmas is…

Yes, it is the third day of Crispmoss, but I have to digress for a moment, because yesterday, news crossed my screen, thanks to alert panda fan Kalpana Kanal, who notified me that serious discussions were happening between people who can do things in Washington State, and the people who own all the pandas in China. (Editors note: I rejected the article from the Seattle Times, as it was headlined: High Maintenance Pricey Pandas sought for Washington State. Correct me if I’m wrong, but isn’t that the least little bit biased against pandas? I must protest!)

Yes! People other than me want to bring pandas to Washington State!!!!!

Which of course brings to mind my cartoon of at least six years ago, about bringing pandas to Seattle:




yes! It’s all I want for christmas

The time is NOW to join with me and all of us here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, and say WOOZPPAH! NOW* (*also spelled WOOZPAH: WOOdlandparkZooProjectPanda) Let’s see if we can get #WOOZPPAH to trend on Twitter! The initials PNW will no longer stand for Pacific NorthWest, but will now be known as Pandas NorthWest! Huzzah!

So who is the crazy person NOW???

And now, on with the Third Day of Crispmoss…

I swear, I had nothing to do with Pinky's let night sit in.

I swear, I had nothing to do with Pinky’s late night sit in.

Remember, it’s Christmas eve EVE tonight. Tell Santa, all we want for Christmas are a couple of Pandas for Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle. I don’t want anything else and I’ve been very, very good!

Be the Bear,
Bob T Panda

      Mehitabel gets plenty of treats. Poor old girl is getting kind of creaky. And is now yelling at me. Maybe she needs a treat….
      Well, that was good for a few moments of silence! She does have an ample supply of nip as it is now legal here in Washington.

    I was in Woodland Park Zoo for a day this past summer with my daughter, and it’s an awesome zoo! We fed a giraffe! I definitely think it would be better with a couple of pandas, though. I hope you get your Christmas wish!!

      It is a lovely zoo, and you are right, Susan! It would be much lovelier with pandas in it. The exciting thing for me is that other people (besides me) are really committed to bringing pandas to Seattle, or I should say, Washington state. I could live with the Whidbey Island Center for Panda Proliferation, but really, anywhere that I don’t have to get on a plane to see them is fine with me.
      BTW, loved your story about Walter the Farting Dog, and your new likeness of him. Does it only make farty sounds, or is there an olfactory component as well?
