Don’t Look in the Back Seat!

um…you know when you watch those scary movies, and there is a malevolent force in the back seat, as the hero/heroine drive blithely and unconcernedly around the dark country side. And the camera cuts to a shot of the evil one starting to rise up in the back seat, and you jump up and yell at the screen:

Don’t turn around!!!!!!! Don’t look in the backseat!

Well, think of that as you start to read this cartoon.

Warning: do not read with food or drink in your mouth.  #YouHaveBeenWarned

Cue the menacing music...

Cue the menacing music…

Meanwhile back on the National Zoo panda front, Xiao Mei Tian (not his official name, just a crib name, as he won’t get either his real name or his panda satire name till he is a hundred days old) has survived his fist week. He is starting to develop his panda markings and is getting nice and round. Huzzah!

I think we can deduce from this cartoon that Pinky is not quite ready to give up her presidential aspirations.

I will have to think of something to distract her….

    MOL! Glad I’m not the only one who likes scary movies. The beanie/tam popping up off of Bert’s head had me in stitches. Then Pinky’s crown/head appearing…Oooo!

    Of course Pinky’s supporters busted her out of lockdown, what a silly question! She’s got ‘portant cubpaign bizness to attend to!

    So glad the little cub-lette is doing good. Can’t wait to find out his “real” & “panda satire” names! But until then, I’m going with Pinky’s name…”Bubba” or when he is rolling around, I call him “Bubba Roll”!

      I always watch scary movies with a blankie, so I can put it over my head at the scary bits. Of course if I go to a movie theater I have to use my coat, because they look at you funny if you take your blankie into the theater.
      Wu and the Meihems should know better than to try to talk about Pinky behind her back. She has been getting more powerful with her magical wand.
      Be very afraid.

      Me too! After Pinky is “discubered”, we would get “Cee” to rent a sharp “cubvertible” so da breeze could ruffle our furs and wear our cool shades! Vroom! Vroom!

      I am sure Pinky is already hatching plots to enlist her baby brother in her presidential campaign. I am pretty sure we can expect various forms of misbehavior from Pinky, don’t you?

    I am so glad I put down my scrambled eggs before I read this! I hate to think of the mess I would have had to clean up 🙂
    I love the different shots of the cubvertible, the conversation, the EYES in the rear view mirror, the Princess and her wand in the back seat and the Meihems hats rising in terror! Hilarious!!

      I would hate to be responsible for scrambled eggs in the keyboard. I don’t even know how you would get that out. Does not BEAR thinking about.
