Bears Will Be Bears or I Bet You Can’t Eat Just One

Those fluffy, fun loving, frolicking Pookies residing at Seattle’s Woodland Park Zoo were in the NooZ yet again! It seems that they provided some “unexpected” science and nature lessons on the food chain for a group of elementary school age kids having a birthday party at the zoo.

What can we say, except that bears ARE at the top of most food chains?

Fun fact: This incident was a question on last week’s NPR Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me! NooZ quiz show. Needless to say, I was jumping up and down yelling, “I KNOW! I KNOW! ASK MEEEEEE!!!” Are bears fun or what?

Fun Fact 2: Bai Yun was reported to occasionally grab a low flying Mallard duck out of the air, for a between meal snack.

Pandarella will return on Tuesdays, for more of our very exciting adventure story starring Bikkie!

California Dreaming!

The newest residents of Panda Canyon have gotten their golden tickets to their new home! We don’t know exactly when they will arrive, but reports are for sometime this summer. Like the Three Chipmunks sang, “Wee can hardly stand the wait…

The San Diego Panda Dynasty continues!

Of course ZooNooZ scored the first interview!

For explanations about Yun Chuan’s vocal stylings, and reports on Xin Bao’s witticisms, do visit the San Diego Zoo’s write up of the new cubbies!

Tuesday Tales is back with Pandarella Episode 7!

There is so much going on right now that I decided I will have the ongoing saga of Pandarella new episodes on Tuesdays, so I can devote the other ‘toon of the week to all the various goings on in the world. I think we have secured an interview with the new not yet arrived residents of Pandiego for this Thursday, and we are working on getting interviews with the North Cascade Zebra, Frank and Mikey’s interviews with the new grizzly bears coming to the North Cascades, and an irate duck who thought that the Woodland Park Zoo was supposed to be a safe haven for ALL animals, not just bears!

So now, let’s get back to our story!

Those evil stepsisters seem somewhat familiar!

Un-Indicted And It Feels So GOOD!

The un-indicted co-conspirators are starting to pile up!

We had to take one more day off from Pandarella, to point out that there was beginning to be an unseemly number of un-indicted co-conspirators, in various criminal prosecutions around the country, concerned with the fake electors grab that was orchestrated (ALLEGEDLY) by Mittens and his henchmen.

We will definitely be back next week with the next installment of Pandarella, but maybe for at least short term, we will have to limit it to one episode a week, since there is so much OTHER stuff going on! New pandas arriving this summer in Pandiego! Escaped zebras in the North Cascades! Another ducky demise episode at Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle! (Pookie 1: I thought dey said dey WERE lunch!) And that is not even considering the trials of the most crimingest ex “president” this country has ever experienced!

Meanwhile, the un-indicted co-conspirator in chief would like a word…

Take a deep breath and go outside! Play with a duck! Remember: Friend, not food!

We Interrupt Our Feature presentation For This Important Announcement

Don’t think this means I’m going to let you weenies off the hook from our incredibly suspenseful and slightly scary story, but first…

THEY’RE COMING! THEY’RE COMING!!!!!

Meanwhile, the Mittens is a Sleeze and financial/election cheat trial continues, with Eric getting the short straw in the “Take your Daddy to Court Day” competition between his family members.

Get ready to meet in Pandiego!!!

The Plot Thickens…or Something

Please enjoy this brief moment of peace before all the bad stuff begins to happen. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.

(Is she talking about Pandyland or in the real world?
Both are true, I think!)

I think I need a cookie too!

There’s no Fool Like an April Fool

Alas! My regular posting day did not fall on April 1st (aka a typical news day in our post apocalyptic times) but as I like a good joke as much as the next bear, please accept our one day late tribute to April Fool’s Day, and to Bob’s capacity for belief in these troubled times.

Pinky sez: “put mittens in the big house, not the White House!”

Bob T well it might have happened Panda

Our Commitment to You, The Viewer

Here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire, we take our commitment to mental health (ours and yours) very seriously, and while we do feel a need to pontificate about our ongoing political nightmare, we are going to do our best to keep Mittens and his fascist minions off of the ZooNooZ stage.

Unlike certain TV networks, we have not offered lucrative contracts for Mittens apologists to spread their nonsense on our ‘toon waves.

We are, we should add, powerless to keep Pinky off ZooNooZ.

For reference, a Scaramucci= 11 days.

March Madness Panda Style!

I am not a sports person. I have heard of the so-called March Madness of (I think) college basketball tournaments. I have never watched said contests, or bet on them and have no interest in doing so. Don’t ask.

But as you may recall, Pinky won a bracket sort of competition back when she was Baby Pinky, and beat out a whole bunch of things for the Smifsonian Icon of the year.

Pinky thought it was time to win at everything again. Or something like that.

Things are heating up in politics land. It’s going to be a challenge to keep our sanity. Remember, when the going gets tough, you need pandas or cuppycakes or maybe both!

Be the Bear!
