My Checkered Past…

Sometimes folks ask me where my ideas come from. They come from all over the place TBH. They come from the news, they come from actual pandas, and they are all at least tinged with my own past history. Today’s Sunday Funday takes a trip down memory lane….

Here’s how it works:

Panda Satire Made Easy

Panda satire explained for you!

The origins of Panda Satire…well, it started with cats!

Ever wondered where all these pandas came from?

But my years in the coffee mines of Starbucks have inspired more than one ‘toon over the years. I have mostly repressed the long ago memories from my days at the roasting plant. And before you ask, no I did not get rich on stock options: that happened after I left, after Howard “don’t call me a billionaire” Schultz bought it from the actual founders. (Want to read the low down on this man who would be president-or more likely help HWMNBN re-elected? Read This. I was able to supply some choice quotes.)

I hope Howard comes to think of me as the annoying splinter that gets stuck in your sock, that keeps poking your foot, and no matter how often you take off your sock, you can’t find it and it sends a sharp pain with every step you take. Don’t make Pinky mad!!!!!

This was way too much fun. :o)

Can I have EXTRA extra whipped cream?

But who knows what is floating around in my brain?

What’s that stuff getting all over my paws? Oh…it’s frosting!

    HAHAHAHAHAHA The sock splinter metaphor (analogy?) is perfect. Sometimes even washing the sock is ineffective. I remember the first time I read the Panda Satire flow chart it made me laugh so hard I had to read it out loud. Thanks for the belly laughs. (And by the way, I have to assume the coffee tasted better before Schultz took over)

      Ha ha! Just as long as you didn’t splash coffee or tea into your laptop. Seriously, I need to make a warning sign for that.
      Splintering on! I just read a more recent interview where HS has shifted his: “I won’t be a spoiler” to “How can you spoil something that’s already broken” (Willful obliviousness, anyone?) to: “I’ll drop out if you nominate a centrist democrat”
      Sigh…my work is not done yet.
