I Forgot Daylight Losing Time!!!!

What with all the excitement (IMPEACHMENT!!!!) and all the crazy-making BS that’s going on in DC (IMPEACHMENT OBSTRUCTION!!!!) I plum forgot that I had not run my favorite seasonal Panda Kindergarten cartoon last Sunday. I hope you all are not showing up an hour ahead (or is that behind?) of time all this week, due to my thoughtless error.

spring back, fall forward?

The other excitement is that I have launched my Panda Chronicles Sock Design project this week, and people are putting their best (panda) foot forward! Panda Chronicles socks, you say? When did you decide to do that?

Um…last week?

Be sure to head over to the Buy Stuff With Pandas page to see our current designs. Each design will be a limited issue, and depending on how many people want to step out in (panda) style, will determine how many I order. Unlike Kickstarter, where I don’t order the items until the project has closed, with something this open ended, I can’t take people’s money then leave them hanging as to when delivery will happen.

I this case, I decided it was worth taking a gamble on 3 designs, with 50 pairs in each design. As you might have surmised, Pinky is far and away the most popular (Pinky: duh!) but the other designs are holding their own. I hope you will want to add Panda socks to your wardrobe, and might I add that these would be socks that anyone would be happy to receive as a holiday gift!

Meanwhile, let’s look back on some other escapades of the panda kindergarten!

This cartoon is one of Bob’s earliest appearances!

You can’t be too careful!

Ha ha! Here’s a toothbrush!

The very first appearance of the Torch Bears!

The torch bears!

Episode 1

Huzzah! More Wheel…of…PANDAS!!!

The Scottish pandas

Save some pie for me!

Or how about some cuppycakes?

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?

Well, that’s all we have time for today! And for all you DC watchers, remember, if you have to cheat to win, you’re not really winning! #SoMuchWinning

A Note on Panda Commerce: As you may know, I am a one bear band (not the Band-a-Pandas, but that gives me an idea for another pair of socks!!) This means I am not on the computer all the time. (Well, some days it may seem like I am, but really…) As the quantities tick down to 0, you might get nervous if you don’t hear back from me immediately. Don’t worry. I can see the order that the messages come in, and will contact you and send the invoices in that order. In other words, if you haven’t heard from me, no one else has either! Doesn’t that make you feel better?

If I Didn’t Read it on the Internet, I Wouldn’t Have Believed It

You know how much I hate hypocrisy. Well, if you didn’t, you should. There is all sorts of nasty behavior going on in and around the WH. And I mean nasty in the sense of crimes that would be held accountable at the International Court in The Hague, nasty. And while this sort of thing makes my head want to explode, the petty hypocrisy of the tRUmpinistas is beyond the pale.

We have the descendants of He Who Would Be King acting all shocked and outraged over Hunter Biden profiting from his family name, while they are making deals and getting trademarks and god knows what else because…well, let’s see… is it their prodigious talent? Or MAYBE, could it be that their father thinks he is “president”?

I hope this will be over soon, don’t you?

Oh no! There are no pandas in this cartoon!

Hey! Who wants PANDA SOCKS???? (Speaking of profiting from my connections…)

I got an email last week from the folks who make my pins and patches, and they are now are making socks available! They are one size unisex socks and they are 87% polyester/ 10% cotton/ 3% spandex. There is some stretchiness factor here, and while I haven’t seen any samples, (Ha Ha! It’s only money!) I decided to take a leap of faith and order 50 pairs each of three designs.

Here are the designs!

Nobody expects the panda kindergarten!

 

And who could forget….

Pinky Has an Opinion

…Because of course she does.

In the words of Princess Pinky: I don’ know how many times I has to tell you, you should have voted for me.

Tell us what you really think, Pinky!

Pinky: when are people gonna learn dat pinky knows da best!

Be da Bear!

I Bet Nixon Never Put His Hand on Anyone’s Knee

You knew that the Ghost of Nixon would not be able to resist commenting on the current emanations coming forth from the clown car that is 45’s house of cards. Really, I don’t know how much more of this we can take! I just read that 45’s defense is the “We don’t think Nixon should have been impeached” defense. What happens when 45 declares he is not going to “co-operate” with the Impeachment Inquiry? I guess we are about to find out!

But as far as we can see, we think he’s…

All together now!

Panda on!

What the Fuzz! It’s Impeachment Day!

OOPS! I forgot to set this up last night, as I am still recovering from my little bout of the flu. So here we are, just a little late. 😬🙄 In other news, after having this computer since 2011, I JUST figured out how to add emojis to text this year! Innovation!

But on to the NOOZ!

HWMNBN is having an absolute meltdown since Miss Nancy declared that Impeachment Season was open! While 45 continues to obstruct in plain sight, The House marches on, like the panda kindergarten at the cuppycake bar! Needless to say, we here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire will be reporting the panda (and cat!!!) view of the proceedings!

But enough stalling! It’s Impeachment Day! Everybody drink!

It’s been a long time coming. Hope he’ll be a looooong time gone!

Buckle up, Bears!
Bob T Panda

More Nooz from the Bear World…

Just when you think that things can’t get any worse, they do. Who could ever have thought that there were lower bottoms yet to reach, and yet here we are.  How long will it be before there is not a single person left who has not been personally touched by gun violence?

We are not fooled by the treacly insincerity of 45’s crocodile tears, as he reads someone else’s statement about his outrage against hate and racism. I fear that we will never regain our standing in the world, that the damage to the environment will never be healed, that we will never be able to trust our own ears and eyes, that what we think is true, is actually what is happening.

I’m trying to panda on, but honestly, it’s getting kind of tough….so…

When the going gets tough, the tough get Frank and Mikey…

Frank and Mikey are just right!

Bears will be bears!

Shark week!

Shark week, minion week…it’s all the same at The Panda Chronicles! After our brief interruption in service earlier this week, which resulted in no one being able to see the site, we were saved by our new web host and guru over at The Digital Reader. For someone like me, who has a tiny bit of tech knowledge, riddled with vast chasms of ineptitude, someone who actually knows what they’re doing and responds quickly to problems is a good thing indeed!

Meanwhile, Pinky has new minions, but let’s take a trip down memory lane as we recall her minions from her last presydential run!

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

Triple Trouble indeed!

What are Pinky and her minions getting up to?

Maybe you shouldn’t plug that many things into an extension cord, Pinky.

did someone turn out the lights?

And Zoonooz is on the job!

Cause and effects are very complicated concepts for baby pandas, don’t you think?

Mei Xiang and the Zoo Director have gotten their panties in a knot, it seems.

Proof positive of Pinky’s persuasive popularity!

Minion security: you can’t be too careful.

Thanks a lot, Leslie. I think you gave Pinky this idea.

Here’s where Panda Week intersects with Shark Week…

It’s Shark Week at the panda kindergarten! Roar!!!!

Have you done all your shopping for Pinky’s birthday????

Be the Bear!
Bob T. Panda Videos are very relaxing Panda

Pandas have to fill out census forms too…

All the kerfuffle over the census form (“WHY WON’T THE SUPREME COURT LET ME DO WHAT I WANT? THAT’S WHAT I PICKED THEM FOR!!!!”) reminded me of this ‘toon from the last Panda Census:

Do we have to count panda adoption fees?

Pinky’s attempt to recruit Six and Sebben as her new minions reminded me of her previous collusion with small pandas….you could ALMOST have sympathy for the difficulty the WH has to find staff that doesn’t crime….

AAAAAAAHHHHHHH!

Triple Trouble indeed!

What are Pinky and her minions getting up to?

Minion security: you can’t be too careful.

Maybe you shouldn’t plug that many things into an extension cord, Pinky.

And Zoonooz is on the job!

Pinky is so good at “Evade the Question”, that she is obviously a natural politician!

Cause and effects are very complicated concepts for baby pandas, don’t you think?

Panda on!

Don’t forget! We have 3 more days on our Kickstarter campaign!

 

Sunday Funday(?????)

With all the news in the news, it’s hard to feel like having fun, but that is what we must do if we are to survive the current madness of “King” Donald. Apparently, He just found out that 4th of July is a holiday, and he “came up with” a great idea for the day.

I hope he doesn’t make attendance mandatory.

Do we HAVE to go?

Meanwhile, out in California…

Yun Zi leaves for China

There’s no place like home…

Leaving the nest is never easy.

mr wu speaks out.

Is this a personality or what?

Don’t try this at home….

Don’t you just wish Fezbook would quit changing things?

Don’t Touch My Stuff! (this means you, Gail.)

Meanwhile, in Kickstarter land, I’ve ordered pins and patches and will get the backer surveys out next week! Huzzah! I bet Pinky will be so happy when Bubba and Ping arrive!

Stay safe and make sure you don’t have a humor deficit!

Be the Bear,

Free Speech or something like it…

When I listen to the things that come out of 45’s mouth (which I do as rarely as possible) I start to think that maybe this whole free speech thing is overrated. Then I smack my self on the head, and remind myself that free speech lets me express my honest displeasure with the powers that be, without the risk of getting thrown in prison for it.

But the operating principle of this “administration” seems to be, the speech of some gets to be freer than the speech of others.

I’m not sure how much more of this I can take.

Be the Bear!
Bob T Elections have consequences Panda

PS: Don’t forget! Our Kickstarter is still gong on! I’ve recently added a new reward, and rewritten the project home page to make it (hopefully) less confusing. Seriously, every time I do this, in some ways it’s like the first time! :-}
