I Can Only Reach This Conclusion:

They want to kill us!!!!

Consider this evidence:
Rollback of environmental regulations
Rollback of work safety standards
Breaking the promise of a path to citizenship for DACA registrants
Imprisoning desparate migrants in inhumane conditions
Rollback of food safety inspections
Continued attempt to end the Affordable Care Act and the protections for those with pre-existing conditions

And that was all before the Coronavirus Pandemic…

Nooz Flash: “president” Mittens has tested negative for having any compassion at all.

The “Best” of Mittens…

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahhahahhhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Whew! I needed that.

As we know, there is nothing “Be best” about Mittens. As one of the panda faithful on #PandaTwitter said, “We need you to keep making fun of Mittens so that we can keep our sanity.*”

*Or something like that.

So let’s climb into the wayback machine and revisit some of our ‘toons that reveal just what kind of cat Mittens is. (spoiler: he’s a bad cat)

It is too much to BEAR!

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

“You are all Losers!” – Mittens the Cat

Pinky is beginning to look positively presidential!

“This is not a loser tail!!!!!”

Poof!

And so it began…

March

Whats a protest without pandas?

happening

Are all these paper clips mine?

Memorial day

Don’t be endangered, be dangerous

Clear as mud!

Things are about as real as they can get.

Well, that’s about all of Mittens we can stand this week. Tune in next Sunday for more of Mittens’ crimes against humanity! Remember, laughing is a great form of resistance. If we quit laughing, the reign of terror has won. Don’t let him win and vote the bums out in November!

Keep panda-ing on!

Surely You Didn’t Think Pinky would Get Away Unscathed, Did You?

Too bad for Pinky that her little brother and his friend Ping Ping, and their cousins from Atlanta are getting a little more assertive! She can’t get away with nearly as much Pinky-like behavior without them striking back!

Do you remember this old joke?

You better go catch it!!!

The old jokes are not forgotten. Sometimes they even get to be president!

Panda On!

Felty Panda NooZ!

As of today, with the exception of one package that the person is not ready to receive yet (She probably wants to do some special shopping for Pinky!), ALL the felty pandas from the Kickstarter project have gone out! This is exciting because it means:

  1. I have made about 200 felty pandas thus far
    and
    2. I have already started of the recent new felty panda orders! (you know who you are!) I will email you as your pandas are ready to travel. Thanks to my newly mastered skill of printing flat rate priority mail labels from home, I can mail things without having to dawdle around the post office for long stretches of time! Huzzah!

May the Fourth Be With You ( day late, but…)

Even though I saw the original Star Wars movie when it came out, it took me years to get this joke. What can I say? Sometimes I am not all that on top of things.

Meanwhile, COVID19 rages on as does the Malignant Orange Menace. Wearing masks is recommended and so the good folks at Redbubble added masks to their line up of products that artists can add their creative stamp to.  If you need a mask, I hope you’ll check out my offerings at Redbubble!

Meanwhile, Pinky has decided to contribute to the mask making cause…in her own way, of course…

Wait…we get paid?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Just one of the new designs for my shop at Redbubble!

Bears will be Bears!

Due to some operator error (some might say incompetence!) the post I set up for today has disappeared! I was having some site issues that I hope are resolved now, so BEAR with me (ha ha! Get it?) while I reconstruct (or try to)…

A Sunday Salute to BEARS! (and cuppycakes)

another cartoon inspired by real news!

Thanks again to Henry Nicholls for alerting me to this story

girl power

Will there be cuppycakes?

feel

Not even CUPPYCAKES????

31 days

Oh come on…hasn’t that ever happened to you? One minute there are two dozen cuppycakes just sitting there, and the next minute they’re gone?

I like bears.

The worst thing is the bears always reset the radio preset buttons and change the seat position!

So, Mikey…how was the Grand Ol’ Opry?

Those grizzlies are awfully sneaky!

It wasn’t us!!!!

Panda On!
Bob T Panda

Who’s ready for TIGERS????

We have many animal friends here besides pandas and (some) cats: koalas (Kevin) grizzly bears (Frank and Mikey), elephants, and even groundhog Punxatawney Phil made an appearance, but once in a while…

There will be TIGERS!

You all remember that story a month or so ago, when the Bronx Zoo reported that several of their tigers tested positive for COVID19, right?

Of course, ZooNooZ got the scoop!

I’ve been waiting for weeks to use this joke…

Panda Commerce Update!

I just posted some new designs over at my Panda Chronicle Shop on Redbubble, and you might want to check them out. Eventually I hope to add these designs to fabric over at another artist “products on demand” site for textiles and linens, but for now, they are available on several products at Redbubble.

BTW, some people asked if I would be making Pinky masks and I probably mumbled something noncommittal, BUT, the folks at Redbubble must have been getting lots of questions about this, because they gave the artists a heads up so we could set up some masks with our designs so when they launch, they’ll all be ready to go!

UPDATE!!! Masks have LAUNCHED! Just head over to my home page at Redbubble, look for the design you like and see if there is a mask available. It didn’t work for every design, but there are masks with all the following designs, as well as some with larger images of Pinky, Bubba, Bee, and Mr. Wu!

Meanwhile, feast your eyes on these…

Beeeeeeeeeeee!

Bubba, two ways! Don’t call mee boo boo!

Nobody expects the panda kindergarten!

Surely you didn’t think I’d forget Pinky, did you?

I included all four of the designs on socks, as well as the soon to be released masks, as well as several other products in their catalog.

You’re welcome!

Panda on!

We are ALL Concerned…

WE knew that the Minch McTurtle led Senate would not vote to remove HWMNBN, even though all the evidence pointed its tiny fingers at him. For me, this unwillingness to look reality squarely in the face and do what needed to be done, verged on cruelty when certain Senators made statements leading one to think that maybe they were on the fence, and could be persuaded to do the right thing.

And now…and now…he is floating the idea that maybe the scientist should look into the idea of using household cleaning disinfectants (“Hey! Everybody has some!”) and strong UV light to “disinfect the body” For the record, this is a bad idea that will kill you, or at the very least make you wish you were dead. And then he gave another press conference to say he was “being sarcastic”.

But at least we got to see Brad Pitt play Dr. Fauci on SNL

And now, without further much ado about the end of civilization (which is not nothing…)

Everyone. Knew.

Washi Tape Has Arrived!

Did I mention Washi Tape has arrived? Check out the Buy Stuff With Pandas page to see how to order it!

Here is a picture of the actual tape!

What Day is it, Anyway

You might think that someone who has worked in her home studio for over 30 years would be able to remember what day it is, but I am having a hard time with that. Yes, I work in my studio every day, but there are regular activities that I engage in, and as most of those aren’t happening, it gets kind of hard to figure out what day it is.

Fortunately, the Whidbey Island Organic Farm School has started up  production, even if their students are not able to be there yet. If you are on Whidbey Island, you’ll know we have a wealth of small organic farms growing wonderful food. Since the farmers markets won’t be opening any time soon, if at all, sales opportunities (i.e. how they actually make enough money to keep going) are extremely limited. If you can, check with your favorite farmer where ever you live, and see if you can get a CSA share. It will keep the farmers working, and you’ll get fresh vegetables that actually taste like something, other than vaguely green.

And now, let’s have some Pandas! One can only eat so much healthy food! Bring on the cuppycakes!

Keeping you safe from evil cuppycakes….

yoga for pandas

All salute the sacred cuppycake!

What makes a panda run? Cuppycakes, of course!!!!

Legalize cake today! Prevent illicit cuppycake activities.

Inspector Panda says, “Know the signs of cuppycake dependency”

Can you calibrate the cuppycake?

I have extra frosting!

If I have but one life to live, let me give it for a cuppycake.

Gimmee!

Washi Tape Has Arrived!!!!

I have about 45 more sets of Washi Tape available at $20 for a set of 4 rolls of 4 different designs. If you have a pending felty panda order (Either through Kickstarter or from this website) and would like to add a set, I can add them to your order with no additional shipping costs. See the Buy Stuff with Pandas page for ordering information. If you are trying to figure out what Washi Tape is and what you can do with it, this site is a good place to start!

Here is a picture of the actual tape! Tape is about 1.25″ wide and a roll is 10 meters of tape.

Wands up, everyone! It’s getting pretty scary out there.

Panda On!

The Quarantine (and the fun!!!) Continues!

What did you learn in the quarantine of 2020?

I learned a new thing today! I learned how to print postage labels from my very own home computer! Who knew how easy it is? Okay, everyone but me, but I was dragged kicking and squealing toward computer usage. I used to drive one of my friends who tried to get me to get on the computers nuts with my reticence. I would open a file cabinet drawer and say, “I’m booting up my computer…now I’m opening a file,” as I pulled out a manila file folder and opened it.

Boy, was I funny! Don’t ask me how many computers and digital devices now live in my house. Really…who knows?

People are posting recipes on Twitter, real and ironic. Late night comedy talk show hosts are broadcasting from their living room couch or attic. Authors are holding book launches on Zoom.   The bereaved, denied the opportunity to say goodbye in person are spilling their stunned grief on social media. This is something we’ve not seen, most of us, in our life times.

We find hope even in our despair, we look for joy where we can find it, and so…

I have declared PANDA SATIRE an essential service.
You’re welcome!

Here comes Meihem!

Panda Commerce Alert!

I got an email that RedBubble is having a sale on stickers and socks, among other things! Here’s the link! If you click on the individual designs, it will show you the various things that have that design on them!

Panda on!

So…what was that phone call Mommee Mei got in the last episode?

The Quarantine Chronicles continue…

You may recall, as we ended our last episode, that the phone was ringing after Mommee Mei liberated Bubba and Ping, from their Pinky precipitated imprisonment. Who could it be?
Was it:
The Zoo Director?
The Canadian twins?
Big brother Tai?

No…it was…

Well, bless her heart!

“Things could be better”: Ha ha…Mei has always been the master of understatement!

Panda on!
Wands up!
