Buh buh buh buh BYEEEEEEEE!

How many of you remember the old SNL routine, with the flight attendants saying goodbye to the departing passengers?  As the people filed off the plane, the flight crew got ruder and ruder, and the “buh bye now!” got more sarcastic with each passenger. I think of this often, because an acquaintance of mine, who works in a local shop, and I have had an ongoing “buh bye” routine going for years.

We try to sneak up on each other so that each of us can be the first to say it. I’m afraid I’ll never top her “drive-by buh bye” that she delivered out her car window, as she saw me walking down the street. I hope that which ever one of us survives longer, at the memorial service for our departed friend, has the presence of mind to whisper “buh bye!” Who says people who live in small towns don’t know how to have fun?

It seems only natural that Pinky would deliver this line to the departing Cublanta twins!

Buh BYEEEEEEEEE!!!!!!

Of course the Meihems just ignore her!

Real Life Panda Alert!

Xing Er, lately of Copenhagen Zoo, decided that his enclosure was just way too boring, and he went walkabout in the zoo. He climbed a metal pole to make his escape (I spit on your tree guards!!!!). While there have been numerous red pandas that have managed at least a temporary scamper to freedom, this is the first time that I have heard of a giant panda making an escape. (Other than Pinky, but she had a secret tunnel!) You go, Xing Er!!!

We are all getting tired of staying at home!

I should have known things would get worse

The news gets worse every day. You Know Who and his chief henchman, Disbarr, have called out the military on the pretext that violent extremists were infiltrating the mostly peaceful protesters who are demonstrating against police violence and murder. Now it appears that Mittens demanded that he be allowed to deploy military across the country. The actual military leaders declined, for now. Kind of makes you wonder, doesn’t it?

Why was his response to armed white guys showing up at state Capitols, “maybe you should talk with them,” to the governors, but peaceful protestors? Call out the militia. Am I paranoid to think that the deployment of unregulated white guys with guns is a dress rehearsal?

Man…I need to detox with some adorable pandas. I bet you do too.

Pinky never misses a trick!

That Pinky is too clever for her own good!

What’s that blinking red light over there?

I has no sekrets!!!!

Huzzah! Pandas save the day!

You can’t just DO stuff. You need instruction from an expert!

Beware of Sockpuppet Accounts on Twidder!

But they’re so cute!

And how about a really early ‘toon (and the inspiration for the name!)

“Hey Lun Lun, would you pick up if you’re there…”

“When did you say you were sending the car for the girls????”

Life at Chez Mei is never dull! Even in a pandemic quarantine. Especially in a pandemic quarantine!

Let’s look in, shall we?

Pinky: six an’ sebben make even ME look good!

Nooz from Felty Panda Central:

I’m starting some experimenting with some new pandas! Pictures to come soon, and also some fun swag with every order while supplies last. More on this later!

Stay safe everyone!

Panda ON!
Wands UP!

And now, live from the Bunker….

So…a global pandemic wasn’t enough for you?

It’s going to be a long, hot summer…

…and probably not in a good way.

I have to admit, the last couple days have been very hard. More than 100,000 people have died in the US from COVID19. Protests have turned into riots, which seem to be fueled by HWMNBN pouring gasoline on the flames, as well as the very real possibility that those white supremacist groups that showed up at state Capitols with not so much as a slap on the wrist, are showing up, to increase the violence and use the (mostly) peaceful protesters as cover.

HWMNBN’s Liar General is claiming that these are “radical left extremists.” I’m pretty sure this is a lie. Audible violence is mere blocks away from the homes of people I care about. I am safe (for the moment) in my forest hideaway and feel very fortunate that this is so.

There is not much I can do from here, besides send adorable, funny pandas out into the world.

Here ya go!

Our lack of taste is only exceeded by our sense of the absurd.

And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?

Who’s the bear???!!!

Varooooooomba! Thanks to Lynnie Ness for alerting us to the “off label” use of the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner.

this old den 2nd episode

The panda kindergarten is so very helpful.

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

This one is still my favorite:

See? I told you it was broken!

I hope these ‘toons with no whiff of HWMNBN helped heal your hearts a little this morning! Panda on, everyone!

Many thanks to those who are sharing pictures of your newly arrived panda masks! They are absolutely adorable, and it gives me great pleasure to know that Pinky, Bubba, Bee (the Bear) and young Pirate Wu are keeping you all safe! 

Take care everyone!
Wands Up!
Stay Safe!

When Enough Fun is More Than Enough!

Poor Mommee Mei…She generously invited the Meihems and Six and Sebben, the Cublanta twins, to come and stay with Bubba and Pinky, thinking that they would keep Pinky distracted and under control. Hahahahahahahaha! Me thinks Mommee Mei is having a bit of a memory problem.

Perhaps it’s time for all the twins to go home…

Can you say, “make my booting a double?”

Well bless their hearts!

Get Out Your Tin Foil Hats!

I mentioned the aforementioned tin foil hat to a friend the other day, and he was not aware of the phenomena. If you don’t know what I’m talking about either, there is a trope in the “conspiracy theory” genre of “literature” that in order to keep the government (or aliens) from spying on your very thoughts, one could wear a hat made from tin foil to keep them from accessing your innermost (presumably depraved) thoughts. Try Googling “tin foil hat” …there is some wild stuff about them!

I’m not really sure how well it works…

I sure hope Mittens can’t read my thoughts!

Meanwhile, in the realm of felty pandas, I’m almost caught up, and by next week I will be! So, if you were wanting a felty panda of your own, check out the currently available pandas on the Buy Stuff with Pandas page! I still have Washi Tape available too!

No Pandas Were Harmed…

…in the drawing of this cartoon.

There will certainly be more hijinks at The Panda House (don’t forget, Six and Sebben, and the Meihems are still visiting!) but for now, safety and sanity (???) return to Mommee Mei’s charges.

Of course with Pinky, peace and quiet never lasts for long!

Pinky: now where did I leave Daddee’s Panda Express card…

What will happen next? I guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Bee the Bear!

Maybe it’s time for Mommee Mei to take up knitting…

Let’s see…now where did we leave the little darlings of the Panda House? (Look here to see the previous episode, if you need to get up to date!)

Oh yeah…Pinky got a package!

Cole slaw, anyone?

Panda on, everyone!
Wands up! These are perilous days.

Felty Panda Update:

I am close to being caught up with current felty panda requests! I’ll still be taking orders for more, but plan to spend a little time in R&D to experiment with making Banky Pig, Mr. Toasty, Frank and Mikey, and Kevin, the smoking hot Koala! Stay tuned!

And don’t forget to look for Panda Chronicle masks on Redbubble! Stay safe, everyone!

 

Sunday Funday Salutes…Our Pandas to the North

As if the global pandemic was not enough pain for those of us in North America, the Canadian pandas are going to be going back to China. Their bamboo, which is about 99% of their diet, comes from China, flown in every couple days (or is it once a week? I can’t remember and I am too lazy to look it up.) has been hard to come by, what with the flight reductions during the pandemic.  Most pandas have a preference for the bamboo they like to eat, and even if the US and Canada weren’t having their own problems, you can’t switch out Seattle boo for Chengdu boo, no matter how convenient that would be.

So, Er Shun and Da Mao are heading back to China, much to our dismay.

Meanwhile, HWMNBN continues to throw tantrums, tell lies about the scope of the pandemic and I’m guessing, will be tweeting up a s**tstorm after the inspiring speech that President Barak Obama gave at the Virtual Commencement on Saturday. It was nice to be reminded what someone with empathy and intelligence sounds like.

But it’s Sunday and that means it’s time for some pandamonium! Let’s look back at the ‘toons about the Canadian pandas and the place they held in the world of Panda Satire!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

Hey! watch where you put that torch!

It’s a good thing that Pinky taught Bubba how to use Skype!

Packing is such a chore! And a surprise visit from a friend can make it go so much faster!

long goodbye

The Long Goodbye, or “Toronto Farewell”

our story

Mommee pandas have laser vision. Don’t even think you can hide, Bubba.

There’s always time for another cupcake!!!

So THAT’S how Pinky got there so quickly!

I wonder what this button over here does….AAAAAHHHHHHHH!

 

By the way, it sounds like masks are shipping over at Redbubble! If you need some masks, wouldn’t you breathe a little easier if they had pandas on them?

Be(e) the Bear!
