One of my favorite lines in The Hitch Hiker’s Guide to the Galaxy is when some robot or other is running around yelling Resistance is Futile and Arthur Dent and Ford Prefect are doing everything they can to resist, to no avail. It’s kind of like that when Mommee Mei turns her laser sharp gaze on Bubba, in order to make him spill the beans. The Vogons have nothing on Mommee when it comes to wielding power.
Did you really think Bubba would be able to resist telling all he knows?
Be sure to tune in this Friday for part 2 of A Halloween Carol!

Yep, my mom had that same look. Poor Bubba never had a chance!
Bubba is still a push over for mom!
Poor Bubba! He got so upset his beanie copter started spinning!!!
It would be really hard for Bubba to play poker, I’m thinking. ??
I would agree. A poker face he does not have! Now, Pinky….
Yes, Bubba has been a real failure at poker. Pinky has won his allowance from him too many times to count.
This may sound cruel, but I absolutely love it when Bubba is in a frenzy when confronted with telling a lie. I hope he’ll never outgrow that, because it’s absolutely adorable!
Hee hee. I do too, and I’m with you. I don’t want him to outgrow it either. The spinning propeller is a dead giveaway! (There is some speculation, that Mei designed the beanie so that she woupd know when he is fibbing. Nothing has been proven, it’s just, you know, some people are saying….)
I always thought that was “Resistance is useless” from Dr. Who as said by the Daleks. Maybe one of them adapted it from the other.
Not being a Dr Whovian, I don’t know who said it first. I do know that “Resistance is futile!” Is a line in Hitch Hiker’s guide. I need a Douglas Adams/ Dr. Who expert to tell me which came first.
My inner panda thinks that Pinky is in major doo doo. Poor Bubba. He can’t take any pressure at all from Mommy. One suspects he will outgrow that.
I hope he doesn’t outgrow it. It is one of the things thatbkeeps him sweet (and not too much influenced by Pinoy, Pinkstarter campaign idea not withstanding.
Did you get jumped by the autocorrect gods? While Filipino pandas would be cool (concept-wise), I suspect that’s not what you meant.
Hmmm… Now I have to go back and see what I wrote. Yes, the evil Otto Korrect is definitely not my friend and I’m sure he is out to make me look bad whenever possible.
Poor Bubba is still a young cub who wants to play in his room. Must be hard to have such a “presidential” sister to contend with. Love his spinning copter hat!
It is no secret that having a precocious older sibling is no walk in the park! Let’s hope that Bubba keeps hos open, honest demeanor, even with Punoy as a role model.
We’re counting on you, Panda in Chief!!!
I’ll do my best!
