We are ALL Concerned…

WE knew that the Minch McTurtle led Senate would not vote to remove HWMNBN, even though all the evidence pointed its tiny fingers at him. For me, this unwillingness to look reality squarely in the face and do what needed to be done, verged on cruelty when certain Senators made statements leading one to think that maybe they were on the fence, and could be persuaded to do the right thing.

And now…and now…he is floating the idea that maybe the scientist should look into the idea of using household cleaning disinfectants (“Hey! Everybody has some!”) and strong UV light to “disinfect the body” For the record, this is a bad idea that will kill you, or at the very least make you wish you were dead. And then he gave another press conference to say he was “being sarcastic”.

But at least we got to see Brad Pitt play Dr. Fauci on SNL

And now, without further much ado about the end of civilization (which is not nothing…)

Everyone. Knew.

Washi Tape Has Arrived!

Did I mention Washi Tape has arrived? Check out the Buy Stuff With Pandas page to see how to order it!

Here is a picture of the actual tape!

Still More from the Impeachment Chronicles

Just in case you were wondering, HWMNBN is still impeached and will be impeached through all of eternity and beyond. Forever. If you were, indeed, wondering. No matter how many newspapers he waves in the air (and we just don’t care) he will always be impeached. He is becoming rapidly more unhinged, if his rant at the Prayer Breakfast last week is any indication.

But we have important things to do here. We should not give in to despair, no matter how much we would like to pull the covers over our heads (believe me, I know!) The first mailing of Tiny Emotional Support Pandas went out this morning! Huzzah! Emotional support pandas are on the way!

I’ve been making different pandas randomly, as my mood takes me, and the first group to head out was the original Hold Me closer Tiny Panda group (everybody sing!). Next up will be the basic Pinky pandas. (As differentiated from Special Pinky!) Now more than ever, we all need tiny pandas!

But first, what’s happening on ZooNooZ?

What did Mr. Bun Know and when did he know it?

Hold on to your hats, panda fans!

#ImpeachmentIs4Ever

The Year in Review! Part 4, The Year’s End…

Before we start on our last installment of the Year in Review, I want to express my thanks to all who made the Tiny Panda Kickstarter project such a success! I am already hard at work making little needle felted pandas. Once all the Kickstarter paperwork is done, and the boxes and other panda shipping materials have arrived, I will start sending each group out as they are completed over the next 4-6 months. Part of me wishes I could have a class photo of all the completed pandas together, but in addition to the packing and shipping chaos that would cause, with the national stress level predicted to skyrocket in the next, oh, say 11 months, y’all are going to need to have these pandas as much as I need to make them.

Maybe next year’s project should be a recreation of the Chinese terra cotta Warriors, done as felted pandas.

Well, the trial of the Century has started. It has the predictable lines drawn: long, careful, evidence packed testimony by the Democratic House Managers, and loud lies and obfuscations by the tRUmp lawyers. The defense straddles between “He didn’t do it,” and “it’s not a crime if he did,” not to mention, “you don’t have enough evidence” (because “we blocked you from getting it.”)

Sigh…

But how did we get here? Let’s dive back into the Year in review! Starting with October…

I can’t believe how accurate these ‘toons have proved to be!

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

All together now!

If Pinky wins the 2020 election, can we have panda-gate?

On to November…

“crime” is not a verb

Oh no! There are no pandas in this cartoon!

Our favorite grizzlies are doing “The Bus”!

And in December…

Obeying Pinky is not in the Consditooshun!

Not even Pinky is above the law. And if SHE isn’t, then Mittens sure as heck isn’t either!

Aaaaaannnddd I think this pretty much sums up the Senate Trial as well:

A bear can dream, am I right?

I think Bubba is almost as good a speaker as Adam Schiff!

So, That’s our year in review! We hope you enjoyed this look back over the last 12 months and really (really) hope we survive the next 12!

Panda On!

New S**T has come to light!!!

I’m sure everyone one has a favorite movie, that they have found relevant quotes for many situations in life. I have several, including Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz, but the one that has the most useful quotes in MANY situations for me, is The Big Liebowski. I didn’t see this movie when it originally came out, but since discovering it, I watch it regularly (It’s one of a handful of movies I own discs of) and Mr. Badger and I quote it almost constantly.

Last week when Rachel Maddow was interviewing Live Parnas, I kept yelling at my iPand, “New s**t has come to light!!!!!” And wouldn’t ya know, when I was listening to The Daily Beans today, they played the audio clip from the movie of Jeff Bridges (aka the Dude) saying that very line! So there! It IS the perfect line for these perilous times!

It was as if that line had been written for this very point in history…

Settle your fur down, Bob!

The Year in Review Part 3

Two notes on things other than the year in review posts:

First, I was alerted to an excellent newsletter by Heather Cox Richardson, writing about the legal ย and political issues of the day, in a very readable, clear manner. (In other words, if I can understand what the hell she’s talking about, pretty much anyone can.) I highly recommend subscribing to her news letter. If nothing else, maybe it will keep me out of the Twidder trenches so I can get some work done. We’re in for a wild ride, panda fans! Here’s to hoping we all survive it!

Second, my Tiny Panda Kickstarter is going swimmingly! It ends this Friday at 5 PM PST, so if you wee thinking about getting a tiny panda (or two) of your own, this is the week. There are still several panda rewards available, and should you want more than one there is both a two panda reward, or you can add another panda to the reward selected. Just message me here via the Contact Us form, or the Kickstarter message system.

Now! On with the Year in Review for July, August, and September!

Frank and Mikey return with excellent advice for hikers!

Don’t (*snorf*) look like food!

Another reminder of why “president” Mittens must not only be impeached, but also removed from office.

*snorf*

Pinky and her new minions get down to serious business

On to August… This seems topical!

Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!

Don’t get mad. Get even.

Even elephants are tired of the GOP’s shenanigans!

 

September! The back to school month!

It does not pay to be late! You don’t want to flunk cake again, do you, Boo Boo?

Another reminder of why the Senate needs to vote to remove…

Mittens: a disgrace to cat-hood

bears will be bears!

See ya next week with some new ‘toons and the wrap up of our Hold Me Closer Tiny Panda Kiscktarter!

Panda On!

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. ๐Ÿ˜ฌ๐Ÿ™„ 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

We Have All Been Here Before…

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?

Um…

“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!
Bob T Panda

Congratulations to Lynda Barry who actually DID win a MacArthur Fellowship! If you haven’t read any of her work, do it now!

Happy Impeachment Day

I’m taking today’s ‘toon, a little out of order, because, although I wrote it a couple weeks ago, today it is suddenly relevant. I don’t know how all this is going to proceed. Watching Nancy Pelosi give her speech gave me all the feelings. Pride, fear, love of country, hope for the future, fear that there is still time for HWMNBN to do far more damage than he has already done.

For the first time since tRump came down the escalator to announce his candidacy, I have some hope. Having young people like Greta Thunberg speaking out on the environment, and all those young people fighting for sensible gun regulations, gives me hope for the future. All of the forces of darkness, many of them in our own government, make me very afraid.

But now, it’s time to see what pandas and cats have to say about IMPEACHMENT!

Why do I feel like I’m watching one of the Godfather movies when 45 is talking?

Panda on, like you;’ve never pandaed before!
Bob T Panda

I don’t know about you, but I’m ready for…

The IMPEACHMENT METER!!!!!!!! Insanity! Crimes against humanity! Letting foreign powers write your policies and pick your cabinet! Inciting violence! Grifting! Lying!

WHAT ARE THEY WAITING FOR?????

Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!

IT ALL COMES DOWN TO CAKE…. Do I eat more vegetables and cut out the cheeseburgers or do I admit we are all going to die…pass the CAKE!!!!

Be the (sob) Bear
