Pinky is not amused…

We are barely halfway through 2019 and we’ve had the first drop out from the Democratic field. (Not Pinky! Or Bob) While some might think that there are far too many people running for the Democratic nomination, I think the large field is a good thing. I think it helps each of us to clarify what the most important things are to us, as each candidate articulates what they want for this country of ours.

Each of the candidates has something to offer. Their focuses are different, even with a certain amount of overlap. I believe that by encouraging all to participate, we, the people, get to think about what are the issues that are important to us. And frankly, many of their policy ideas are needed now. Eric Swalwell was the first to leave the race, but his central issue, dealing with the over abundance of guns in our country and lack of sensible regulations, is an important one.

I hope as each of these candidates who fail to gain traction step aside, they will leave these important issues for the remaining candidates to pick up and add to the things they are passionate about. One thing is certain. This needs to be the final days of 45’s reign of contemptuous lawlessness.

But that’s enough of being serious! Bring on the pandas!

get out of the way! There is a Pinky coming through!

And don’t forget! only one more week for our Kickstarter campaign! Did we mention our fabulous Stretch Goal reward? You know you want this!

What could possibly go wrong?!?!?!?

The Tour de Pandas Has Begun!

The Tour de France began yesterday, and, wouldn’t you know it, the panda kindergarten is up to their old tricks! Don’t do what they did to get pictures of the race!

Who says real life can’t be funny?

If you love cute pictures of cats (and who doesn’t???) be sure to check out the very funny #TourDeCouch over on Twidder, from the account of @CatFoodBreath

The panda kindergarten have bad records when it comes to taking selfies in other situations too…

Much better to take a selfie with pandas!

AAAAAAhhhHHHHHH!

Will Pinky try to repeat this stunt for her 2020 run?

I really had no idea what she was up to.

Mei should not be getting all excited like this in her condition!

Thanks to the unidentified reader who suggested what the jaguar might have done with said selfie seeker’s phone!

I’d love to see some selfies with your Panda Chronicles patches and pins! Maybe that would inspire people to sign up for their Mr. Wu pin and patch over at Kickstarter! We have just over a week left to go!

A Very Mittens Fourth of July

I really do hope that all the non-Mittens-sycophants stay home from the “president’s” taxpayer and high donor funded rally today. I hope that the photos show a totally empty DC outside of his VIP area. As Karl, the waiter in Casablanca, said when Rick asked where he was seating the Nazis, he replied, “I gave them the best table, knowing they would take it anyway.”

And so HWMNBN declares that “no one ever celebrated the 4th of July before I became “president”.” And cordoned off the best viewing spot for the fireworks for a VIP area for his supporters….and do you suppose he will turn this into a political rally for himself and bashing of the Democratic candidates?

So, let’s have some pandas before I start weeping in despair. Is our independence near? Who knows?

*snorf*

And while you are ignoring all the shenanigans taking place in DC, and you’ve eaten all the backyard cookout goodies you can stand, head over to Put a Panda on it 3.0: The Mr Wu Pins and sign up! You’ll be glad you did!

Panda on!

Look Out!!!!

So… when I work on my ‘toons, I pretty much schedule them in the order that I drew them, and if there is a time sensitive subject matter (like the ‘toon I’m going to run on Thursday), I try to draw them in that order. in my obsessive compulsive way, I even write the date and day on the page in my sketchbook where I write the ‘toons.

But this ‘toon cracks me up so much that I couldn’t wait for the whole two and a half weeks till its turn to run came up in the ‘toon schedule.

Because, when it comes to fierce animals, you don’t mess with grizzly bears!

Don’t (*snorf*) look like food!

And then there was the news that HWMNBN was going to get his way in regard to tanks in his military dictator parade. Oh….um…did I say that outloud? 

reality

Do we HAVE to go?

Don’t forget to go check out the Mr. Wu Pin Kickstarter! I have a really great stretch goal that I’m just dying to tell you about!!!

Panda On!

GO GO GO!!!!!!!

How NOT to start a Kickstarter campaign:

  1. Wait till the absolute last minute to start actually setting up your project
    2. Figure “I’ve done this so many times before. I have the items designed, what could possibly go wrong?”
    3. Hit a technical glitch within the Kickstarter site.
    4. Go to sleep and hope it will be fixed by morning
    5. Glitch has not self corrected. Send request for help to Kickstarter support.
    6. Get no response from Kickstarter.
    7. Send another request to the help line.
    8. Get no response.
    9. Troll Kickstarter on Twidder (heh) but (mostly nicely. (mostly)
    10. Send another desperate email to help line.
    11. Kickstarter fixes glitch.
    12. Launch project from phone, without sending out sufficient notice, late on Friday afternoon.
    13. Send out the same ‘toon you sent out yesterday, announcing the ACTUAL launch of the project, as opposed to the one announcing it yesterday, when I was not actually able to launch.

My Bad! But Hey! We’re LIVE!!!!!

Mr. Wu IS a pivotal panda in the rise of panda satire! Better late than nebber!

Put a Panda on it 3.0!!!!!

Get Ready…Get Set…NOT YET!

I think we are almost ready to launch our new Kickstarter Pin Project, featuring, the one, the only, the irresistible Real Wu Self! At noon today PDT, we are planning to be ready to launch. Despite the fact that I am a bit behind on this, due to several circumstances beyond my control, and a rather overwhelming need to take naps the last couple weeks, I am approaching readiness for this project!

Important Update!!!!:

Due to my lackadaisical attitude that “Oh, I’ve done lots of projects and they always confirmed my set up really quickly” I still don’t have all the clearances I need to go ahead and launch Wu’s project tomorrow. I’m hoping that approvals will magically take place over night and I will still be able to launch at my scheduled planned time of Noon, Thursday June 27, but if I can’t, then I will keep you posted! For those who supported the last 2 projects, I can send out messages via Kickstarter, and for the rest of you, I’ll post an update here, Twidder, and Fezbook. Sigh…that’ll learn me!

Let’s see what Mr. Wu himself has to say about this!

psst! want a sneak peek at the preview? Here it is!

The Panda Kindergarten Keychain! Huzzah! Final size approx. 1 3/4 inches wide

“I love the sounds deadlines make, as they go whooshing by”

That’s a quote from one of my favorite writers of all times, the late Douglas Adams, author of The Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy and many other books. And alas, I have missed a self imposed deadline. 🙁

I had hoped to be ready to launch the next series of pins and patches today, but one thing an another (I lost 2 weeks due to an unavoidable and unexpected trip) has kept me from this meeting this deadline. I’m trying very hard to get everything up and running for Thursday June 27th instead, so stay tuned! I’m close to ready, with a few more things to do, and get my project approved by the Kickstarter folks.

Read on after today’s ‘toon to get a sneak peek at the designs for the pin and patch designs!

And now…who are YOU calling a snowflake?

I’m not a snowflake. You are a snowflake!

Thanks to all who alerted me to this very important story about an albino panda caught on the panda cam in China, in the Quinling region! (You know it must be true if the Smifsonian reported it!)

And now, a little sneak peek at the next pins!

The Wu self! Final size will be about 1 1/4 inch wide

Kitty Sue and the Three Pandas

Once upon a time, three pandas lived a quiet life in the forest…

story

This story seems a little, but not entirely, familiar!

In a cabin in the woods…

Pandas are very misunderstood, in so many ways….

What a lovely day for the 3 pandas to relax at home!

(In case you were confused about the ending, in the words of Dee Martin Wintle: They ate Kitty Sue!!!!!)

Happy Solstice, everyone, no matter which hemisphere you’re in!

There is some pretty foul air floating around DC. could it be…

…FREEDOM GAS?????

Ahem…You Know Who just officially “launched” his reelection campaign, although how you can tell it from his business as usual, I just don’t know. Mr. Badger suggested that I not listen to the news any more, so that my blood pressure doesn’t shoot through the roof, and I don’t have nightmares about the concentration camps at the border.

But if I did that, I wouldn’t have heard this story to make fun of (because we DO need an extra dose of humor in our lives, especially at times like this!)

What’s that smell? Could it be…The smell of FREEDOM??

You gotta STOP Hey! What’s that sound…

I SWEAR I DID NOT MAKE THIS UP!!!!

The end of something wonderful…

Did I scare you? I didn’t mean it was the end of The Panda Chronicles or anything like that. I meant that it is the end of boo shoot season, the favorite season of pandas everywhere. I read that Zoo Atlanta had announced the end of the season, when the wonderful fresh bamboo shoots were no longer available.

I imagined myself to be a fly on the wall of Six and Sebben’s hammock room…

Let’s listen in, shall we?

Will these two ever get along?
