Here at the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we have become aware of the growing humor deficit in this country and around the globe. Dis! Will! Not! Stand!!! If you are in any doubt that we need to laugh, almost as much as we need food, clean water, and shelter, look no further than last week’s TwitterQuake with Devin Nunes’ Cow. After declaring that he would sue both Twitter itself and 2 parody accounts for making fun of him (wah wah wah) Devin Nunes’ was chagrined to learn that his cow’s Twitter account surged from just over 1000 followers to over 629,000 in less than a week, thanks to the attention his lawsuit brought to it.
His cow’s following is more than 200,000 more than Devin’s and still growing. If nothing else, the number of very funny (if silly) puns being tweeted in support of said cow shows that people have all this pent up humor looking for a place to release it. But of course, those of you who follow The Panda Chronicles are already well aware of the need for humor, particularly in the dark times we are now living in, and the darker times ahead. Still, I do love a good bovine bon mot!
Speaking of the need for humor, here are some pandas!
Of course, the #PandaSeasonofLove does have a few twists and turns…
Real Panda Update: Panda fans in DC (and indeed, around the world) are happy to note that Mommee Mei appears to be ready for the #PandaSeasonofLove! Lets hope there is a cubby (or two) in her future! also, it appears to be #ThePandaSeasonofLove in Calgary too!

BTW: if you are looking for a great read, I can highly recommend Samira Ahmed’s latest book Interment. It’s a gripping story that addresses the current and potential political reality so many people are facing right now. With echoes of Anne Frank’s Diary, 1984, and The Handmaid’s Tale, this book is not a comedy. It is, however, an excellent read and you won’t be able to put it down. I know that lovers of pandas tend toward the compassionate side of the scale, and this book will add to that, I think. Tell me what you think!
Well, lost my comment! The Nunes Twidder Cow is one of the funniest things I have seen! Thanks for the info! I don’t twitter, but love this story. Nunes is an idiot. Still on heavy doses of meds for my Myasthenia Gravis. The word treatable and the actual treating are just bizarre! Doses of steroids and another med that helps nerves and muscles respond is very interesting to say the least. Rest helps so that’s what I do
Season of love at the Natl Zoo! Mei is barking at Tian who is watching her like a hawk on the howdywindows. BeiBeiheard thembarking and climbed a tree. I would, too.
Hope all is going well with you, the pins, toons! Keep us up to date on the Nunes Twidder Cow!
Well, it’s not the Nunes’ Cow, but tomorrow, Frank and Mikey are back! Currently the cow has over 630,000 followers!
Also, the pins are on their way! I hope you enjoy them!
