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….
Want to be the first the check out the paid commerce page and get your limited edition socks? Check it out rightHERE!
It looks like we are getting a treat today, although, I’m sure that 45 and his band of like minded GOP goons have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. I’m pretty sure that the vote on the next phase of the Impeachment inquiry won’t make them happy, and they will commence to activate more delaying tactics and cries of “UNFAIR!”
The phrase “be careful what you wish for” springs to mind!
…Something more innocent than the current Nooz cycle, that is! (inky can hardly be described as innocent!) When the current occupant (occupier?) of the White House behaves like a pouting toddler, we need some junior pandas to raise the level of discussion.
Where will it all end? I have no idea, but I will keep drawing pandas as long as I can!
Don’t you ebber knock?
Hey! What about more PINS????
For those who are wondering (you were, weren’t you?) I have decided not to do another round of pins and patches before the end of the year. I find I have not nearly enough year left, or energy to add this into the rest of the year. Never fear, I have so many ideas and I really want them to come into being, so the pin/patch project will return after the new year.
That said, I do still have inventory of all the previous pins, including some slightly less than perfect pins that I can sell at a lower price. So, if you want to do a little holiday shopping, feel free to contact me via the Contact Page. (This is the most reliable method, as FB and Twitter messages can get lost in the shuffle, and don’t even think about asking via a comment thread. The likelihood of me seeing that is less than 50%!)
I’ll try to get things packed and shipped out to you as soon as I can. I usually go to the post office once or twice a week. (I am not Amazon!)
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!
Despite the fact I sometimes can’t remember where I left my keys, I still remember that August day in 1974 when I watched Nixon resign. I remember being thrilled and scared and maybe a little horrified, that the President was resigning, because he knew he was guilty of the crimes he was about to be impeached for.
Nixon was guilty, but his time in the White House was not without merit!
I am only making some of this up. copyright 2012 -A. Belov
How quaint his crimes look compared to the current occupier of the People’s House. Fortunately, Nixon’s Ghost occasionally drops by at ZooNooZ to enlighten Bob and Mehitabel, and provide context for 45’s reign of corruption.
Can’t ghosts have opinions too?
“And they called ME a crook!”
Editor’s note: These ‘toons are from a year ago. How about it, MacArthur Foundation Fellowship folks… am I a (stable) GENIUS or what??? Do you need my phone number for next year?
And lest we forget that there STILL is no MacArthur Grant for Panda Satire….
Perfect Impeachment Weather!
Panda On, Everyone!

Congratulations to Lynda Barry who actually DID win a MacArthur Fellowship! If you haven’t read any of her work, do it now!
Granted, they will not be hosting the Winter Olympics in Beijing until 2022, by which time we could all be dead, but we are so excited that the pandas get another chance to compete! Of course some sort of panda-like mascot has been selected for the 2022 Olympics. Predictably, some have criticized the Olympic committee for “lack of creativity” in choosing a panda as the mascot. To this we say: WHAT ARE YOU FREAKIN’ NUTS???? IT’S A PANDA! OF COURSE THEY CHOSE A PANDA! GET A GRIP!
In honor of this momentous honor for pandas, let’s look back on Panda Olympics past! Huzzah! It’s a double dose of pandas because we REALLY need them!
another boring rerun
Did the Torch Bears take a wrong turn????
This cartoon is one of Bob’s earliest appearances!
The Pandas first attempt at Olympic Glory!
Never underestimate the power of a good “fart joke”
We would like to point out that there were NO TORCH BEARS near the Cathedral of Notre Dame when it caught on fire.
Love the hobby horse on a spring (inspired by a REAL photo of a REAL panda on one.
I keep hearing the song “bears on the Run” going through my head…the ski run, that is!
Uh oh! has there been Russian tampering with the selection of the Torch Bears?
Hey! watch where you put that torch!
Hey! What are you two doing up on top of the ski jump?
Let Pinky be Pinky!
Skate faster, Boo boo!
Four pandas are better than two.
The world swoons….

Also, if you had on your Impeachment Bingo™️ Card, “Conspired on a recorded phone call with a foreign leader to influence election,” mark your card for triple points!
It does seem that I am running double speed and still staying behind the times, behind the curve, behind the eight-ball. So, you will forgive me (I hope!) that I share this little behind the scenes look a bit late, at Bubba’s Birthday Eve! I am happy to report that he did not flunk cake this year (huzzah!) but he MIGHT have, if he did not have a little help getting to his birthday bash on time!
Better safe than sorry, when it comes to your Birthday party, Bubba!
It does not pay to be late! You don’t want to flunk cake again, do you, Boo Boo?
Oh me oh my! We just got the news that there will not be any baby pandas in DC this year! We send our love to Mommee Mei and family, and hope that they (and we!) can get over the disappointment!
Till we have news of the potential pitter patter of little paws in Calgary, we will have to be content for news and pictures of Hao Hao’s twins in Belgium at Pairi Daiza, and Meng Meng’s in Berlin. Not to mention an active baby panda season in China!
Meanwhile, we have mined the archives for some ‘toons about baby pandas! Enjoy!
…baby pandas! You’re getting baby pandas!!!!
“Howdy do! I’m Mr. Wu! Who are you?”
“Wu calls his dance, ‘Ode to a Weaf’ “
And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?
Such a little darling! How could her big brother resist spoiling her?
Pinky tests her powers….
Huzzah! a guest appearance by little Po!
Bubba’s first feature role!
He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!
Meanwhile, Beware the Ides of September! And coming soon! Our annual rebroadcasts of The Wizard of Wu, and A Halloween Carol! How’s that for an October Surprise! Bwahaha!
How did it ever get to be September? I just can’t imagine how August slipped by with hardly any notice. One of these months I need to completely block out my calendar and stay in bed for a week and read books and eat toast.
Meanwhile, I think it’s time to share our Salute to the Canadian Pandas, because…well, just because!
Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?
“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”
Um…I think Pinky has Daddee wrapped around her fuzzy little paw. Just saying.
Ooooh! Did Daddee actually yell at Pinky?
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?
There may be political concussions!
I just love that series of ‘toons! And we are definitely now suffering from political concussions!
