The Season of Cake Part Two

It is my Birthday Season, and that means it is the season of cake! I love cake. Did I mention that? Frosting should be declared a national treasure. Just saying.

I don’t have one of those skimpy one day birthdays. No, I have a birthday season. My birthday season lasts one day for each year old I am, and while I’m not going to reveal exactly how old I am, let’s just say that my birthday season is very, very, very, long. Certain parties, who shall not be named here, think it is entirely too long, and that maybe I should cut back to a birthday week, or at the very least, a birthday month.

Pah!

So today’s cartoon is about….

Cake.

Inspired by a TRUE story!

Yes, It’s true! I heard about it on the internet, so it must be true. Mehitabel is such a spoil sport! I mean these guys are scientists!!!!!!

Well, I need to go…um…have some cake.

Fabulous Furry Friday

…better late than never.

It is Fabulous Furry Friday once again, and it is time to dive into the archives to share some vintage panda satire with you, so that I send you smiling into your weekend.

As Bubba packs on the ounces, I am reminded of Pinky’s early days as a Panda Princess, quickly gaining the control of the previous class of the panda kindergarten…

Pinky tests her powers....

Pinky tests her powers….

But then she acquires some unusual powers for a panda…It appears that she had an elevated sense of self worth from a very early age….

Princess Pinky is drawing a line in the sandbox.

National Zoo cub makes mom Mei Xiang disappear

oops.

Princess Pinky is fooled by Mei Xiang at the National Zoo

Oh Princess Pinky, mom has a trick or two up her paw, I think…

Hmmm….I think perhaps Pinky has always felt she was born to rule….but meanwhile, in the panda kindergarten….

Cats are no match for pandas

What’s a cat to do? Pass the cake, please.

Ya’ll have a pandy weekend! Pass the cake, please.

Happy Birthday To You!

Well, this may be a first for The Panda Chronicles.

You know how people who are born on holidays like Christmas or 4th of July always complain that no one ever really celebrates their birthday because..um…MAJOR HOLIDAY!!!!!DUH!!!!

So, think about what it means to be born on what is probably the most infamous day in recent American history (and I don’t mean the day that the Supremes appointed George W. President) Yeah, I am talking about the ultimate conversation stopper. What if your birthday is on September 11th? Let me put that another way, in case you missed the reference.

What if your birthday was on 9/11?

Well, that just happens to be the case for one of The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire’s most faithful followers, a young woman from my home town of Phillie PA. so in honor of your birthday, we bring you….

A Salute to Cake! Happy Birthday, Cami Taylor!!!!!

Well, apparently, much to my surprise, I could go on and on with cartoons of pandas and cakes, but I won’t!

Happy birthday, once again Cami….be sure to…um…have some cake. How did I know about this? Let’s just say that small pandas have big mouths. I’m looking at YOU, Emperor Pew! ( see article: When good pandas go bad!) Thanks for alerting me to the news that there is something to celebrate about 9/11. That Bamboo Psychic network is really something!

The Pandapocalypse has arrived!

…and just in time for Fabulous Furry Friday, no less! Actually, someone has already snuck into the Pandapocalypse Now! stronghold over at Amazon and procured the first copy! Fess up! Who did that????

What’s that, you say? Is there a new Panda Chronicles Compendium perhaps? Why, yes, as a matter of fact there is, and it stars Princess Pinky and the Meihem twins!!! and the cover looks something like (OK, exactly like) this:

It's Pink, but still kinda, um...dangerous!

It’s Pink, but still kinda, um…dangerous!

From the very beginning of Pinky’s reign of terror in our nation’s capitol, until her very first birthday party, this volume celebrates all things Pinky and Meihem in a three ring circus pandapalooza. Like for instance….

I love a good art forgery, don't you?

Oh, those little scamps! “How does you spell ‘hostage’?”

Or how about the first appearance of the Meihems when they were teeny tiny little pandas?

The first appearance of the twinkies on The Panda Chronicles

I’m sure you will want your very own copy (hint, hint, wink, wink, nudge, nudge) so hop on over to the Pandapocalypse Now! page and scurry on over to Amazon  and get your own copy of The Panda Chronicles Book 5: Pandapocalypse Now!

Not since The Book of Wu have so many pandas behaved so badly. Huzzah!

Pandas are standing by to take your order. (And if you would like to support Pandas International with your purchase, I’ve been told that there is a program called Amazon Smile: just type “Amazon smile” in the search box and then you get to pick your non-profit, if I remember correctly. Once you’ve made that choice, Amazon remembers for future purchases.)

 

You Say it’s Your Birthday….

Oh my ears and whiskers! Princess Pinky’s fans have been at the zoo for HOURS, the cake has been licked and climbed upon, Pinky has opened her presents, and the forces of Meihem have been corralled (for the moment.)

Fortunately, Inspector Panda has his able assistant on the scene, working undercover.

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

The forces of Meihem are only barely in check.

Tune in tomorrow afternoon for the post party wrap up. (Is this any way to treat an icon?)

Hey, I almost forgot! You can still get the ibook version of Pandamorphosis for FREE through the weekend! Here’s the link. Woo hoo!

Huzzah! The Meihem Twins Turn One Year Old!

Welcome to this special panda birthday season edition of The Panda Chronicles! In honor of Zoo Atlanta’s pride and joy, Mei Lun and Mei Huan turning one year old today, we have an extra ‘toon to celebrate!

Huzzah!

There must be cake!

There must be cake!

I bet the Meihem twins will be out of detention in time to go to Princess Pinky’s pawty in August!

Be the Bear,

I’m Very glad this month is almost over.

Veritable verisimilitude and vice-versa, vis-a-vis this month of alphabet charms!  I vacillate between vast  and vacuous vacancies in my mind.

But what does this have to do with pandas? Verily, I say verbosely, these valiant bears are valuable, to the tune of a million dollars a year rent per panda pair. Well, better vamoose, before the vandals (aka the panda kindergarten) vanish with the cuppycakes!

Escape!  Come with me, little cake, so we can be alone together.

There is a cake in the vicinity!

See you tomorrow, hopefully with a little longer post. Time is vanishing today!

Be the Bear,

“F” is for Forgetful

Finally a letter that is a feature of my life at the moment. As a fastidious furry friend once said, “I am smarter than the average bear” right before he stepped in front of a fast Ferrari and found his finale.

Fortunately, our fine fuzzy fictional princess is with fantastic and fabulous friends. They shall fly over the freeways at speeds not for the faint-hearted.  Meanwhile over at the A to Z, we find frenetic formulating of this fanciful format, as we fantasize about frosting. For Real.  My A to Z pick of the day is the Artsy Gourmet, who you can fine here!

Fast furry friends...for now

This cartoon is based on the real life antics of the fickle fuzzy fractious panda princess as she explores the art of tree climbing.

EEEEExuberant pandas!

Yes, it is day five of the most excellent A to Z challenge.

Enquiring minds explore excellent edifices and endeavor to educate enthusiasts. Ever exciting events are in Evidence.

EEEEEEEEEE! It’s the panda kindergarten! We shall endure. And as we had earlier engaged to exhibit the essence of the cast of the Panda Chronicles….

Our enfant` egomaniac, that paragon of perfection, Princess Pinky, currently the youngest panda on The Panda Chronicle stage.

Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.

The engaging Bee (the bear):

Mehitabel would like to register her protest about given the least sympathetic role in this adventure.

Of course we must not forget those energetic panda scout entrepreneurs, Bert and Ernie:

zoo atlanta, bao bao, national zoo

Time to call in …Inspector panda!

Which gives entree to that enigma to evildoers, Inspector Panda!

THIS is a case for Inspector Panda!

THIS is a case for Inspector Panda!

Ending with our enchante` enchantress, the engaging Babette de Panda!

And now, for our escape:
