Well it was a proud day for pandas everywhere! Pandas ( that most graceful of animals) have managed to win the gold medal for pair figure skating in Vancouver BC this week. I myself am quite the skater, but I have been unable to participate, due to the fact that I recently got a traffic ticket for “operating a vehicle under the influence of bamboo” last week. How was I to know that the bamboo had fermented? I had my lucky panties packed and ready to go to Vancouver, when I had my unfortunate meeting with the state patrol. How was I to know that cruise control is NOT the same thing as automatic pilot? Anyway, I was turned back at the border, so I just had to watch on TV.
Till next time,
Bob. I lOVE your panda cartoons. I am writing a book on the history of pandas and am very interested in how cartoonists have “used” the panda since the 1960s. Would you get in touch? I’d really like to run a few ideas past you and perhaps interview you for the book.
