The Year in Review Part 2

Before we dive in to our Year in Review encore presentation, can I just say OH MY FRIGGING GOD!!!! The tiny panda (Hold me closer tiny panda) Kickstarter reached its goal amount 13 minutes after launching. I am astounded with gratitude for this response. It also was listed as a Kickstarter Project We Love most of the day on Friday. Needless (or needle-less) to say, I have a lot of felting to do over the coming months. If you are afraid you missed your favorite panda, check back at the project, because I added some more reward categories!

Thank you again, from deep within my heart. I can’t wait to get these pandas to you! (After I make them of course!) This has the added benefit of getting to visit the Abundant Earth Fiber store again, which may now be called my happy place!

But now, on with the Year in Review for April, May, and June (Wherein we are reminded of why we need emotional support pandas!)

it was a total coincidence that Babette’s ‘toon should run today.

Moove over! You’re crowding me!

Look who’s here!

On to May!

If you go out in the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise!

Irony is dead:

Who could have done this????

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

June is in ‘toon…

Bwahahahaha!

Frank and Mikey make another return appearance!

So, Mikey…how was the Grand Ol’ Opry?

And let’s not forget Six and Sebben!

Will these two ever get along?

Well, that’s it for today’s wrap up! See ya real soon!

Panda on!

The Impeachment Chronicles!

Today is the day! At approximately 10 AM today I’ll be launching the felty panda (Hold me closer tiny Panda) over on Kickstarter today! While you’re waiting, should I remind you why we all need emotional support pandas?

Help me Wanda!!!!!

I can totally see you know who doing this.

See ya soon!
Or should I say” wake me when all this is over?”

Be da Bear!

The Year in Review Part One

I did warn you I was going to do this. It will be instructive (not to mention profoundly depressing) to look back both here in panda satire, as well as in the real world (or the reality world…whatebber!) and see where we started 2019!

So in January…

Look out Bubba! Pinky is trying to get her paws on Banky Pig!

But Bubba had a plan!

That Ping Ping is a clever liddle bear, isn’t he?

Meanwhile, a vision of that which was to come…

Mittens did WHAT??????!!!!????

On To February!

The Government shutdown, orchestrated by HWMNBN started in December, and still continued into February, heedless of putting 100’s of 1,000’s of people out of work. Or was it millions?

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

I see trouble in my crystal ball…

Even Nancy Pelosi listened enthusiastically!

But Time Waits for no Panda…onto March!

March brought us the presidential candidacy floating of yet another unqualified billionaire, this time a purveyor of double-half-caff-frappacino-with-skim-whippy-cream-and-sprinkles, claiming that the obvious disdain for his proposed presidential run, was a sure sign that the people wanted him to do it. Fortunately, he fizzled out (bad back, my behind!) and he has receded to the obscurity he deserves.

“Hey! I’m still back here!”

The people have spoken!

And then there was the return of everyone’s favorite grizzlies…Frank and Mikey!

“We are NEVER going to get our security deposit back!!!”

If you enjoyed our first Year in Review installment, you can search the archives in the sidebar and read the full stories that we have highlighted here! And while your in the sidebar, you can also look at what we have to offer at Redbubble in our Buy Stuff With Pandas feature!

Panda as if your life depended on it!

Day 18 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Today is the day! Day 18 of 31 days of Pandas celebrates…

Impeachment Day!!!

A bear can dream, am I right?

We wish it was Impeachment and Removal Day, but let’s see where this goes. Maybe (hahahahaha) a few members of the GOP in the Senate will grow a spine. I know, I know…

Panda on!
Bob T we shall overcome Panda

Tune in tomorrow for the next episode of Mei Xiang’s Nightmare Before Christmas!

Day 16 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

We are on the downhill slope:

towards the shortest day of the year…
towards the vote to impeach HWMNBN

TOWARDS THE END OF 31 DAYS OF PANDAS!!!!!!!

We shall have one more day of kinder, gentler pandas from a more innocent time, before heading paws first into the maelstrom! A healthy serving of cake (by which I mean a really large one with extra frosting) may be in order as well.

Invite Pinky to your holiday parties, with this Pinky Paper Doll!

You better watch out….

This ‘toon from December of 2015 demonstrates that we knew what we were in for, from HWMNBN. Our Werld Peez Pandifesto:

Consider this my Werld Peez Pandifesto

Courage, my friends!

Panda on!

There is still time to buy stuff with pandas!  

Day 8 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my! Day 8 of 31 days of Pandas is upon us!

Panda Socks are (mostly) all in the post, and some have even arrived! Huzzah! But now, let’s not waste another minute obsessing about whether this is the end of democracy, the beginning of the end for Mittens, or the end of the beginning!

It’s time for the next episode of Pinky in Wonderland!

When we were very, very small…

Why look! Eet ees Bebe Maurice!

Off with her head!

Is that turtle Too Much McConnell? Who needs a mallet to the butt more than he does?

Uh oh! Will Pinky get convicted? Tune in Tomorrow for the exciting conclusion of Pinky in Wonderland!

And because it ’tis the season….even more relevant than when I wrote this in 2017

Oh tidings of treason and greed.

Panda on

Day 7 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Happy Caturday! For those of you who serve cats, congratulations! While my feline overlord has gone to her reward (unlimited tuna and no one bothering her, one might guess) I look forward to the day when once again I can hear the pitter patter of thundering paws. How an animal so small can make so much noise is beyond me!

But enough about cats! It’s time for more of Pinky in Wonderland!

Our story continues…

What did we tell you?

Bubba wouldn’t be such a smarty pants if he wasn’t up in that tree (and couldn’t disappear at will)

I don’t know if I would eat that mushroom, Pinky!

Don’t eat that, Pinky!!!!

Be the Bear!

If I Didn’t Read it on the Internet, I Wouldn’t Have Believed It

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!

The Bubba

Nobody expects the panda kindergarten!

 

And who could forget….

Family Feud

No, it’s not Pinky and Bubba this time, or even Six and Sebben. We turn our tortured eyes to the current occupiers of the WH, and imagine, just for a moment, just what could they possibly have to talk about.

Here’s hoping they will devour their own young, so we can be done with them. Oh…um…did I say that out loud?

Mittens: a disgrace to cat-hood.

Meanwhile, we recently heard a news story that will make you reconsider letting Mr. Fluffy sleep with you.  #CatsRJerks

Panda on Everyone!

OMG I forgot it is Talk Like a Pirate Day TODAY!!!!

Fortunately, Savage Chickens reminded me, alerting me in enough time that I could add my favorite Mr. Wu (okay, ONE of my favorite) series, Wu da Pirate!

Yo ho ho and a bottle of BooBeer!

21) Rusty the scuppers, pirate crew…

An explorer’s work is never done.

The penguins save the day!

I promise i will always be a good panda….

And if you are interested, I still have some of the Mr. Wu Pirate patches available for purchase. let me know if you are interested!

The Wu the Pirate patch! approx size 3.5″ tall

 

More from Youverest™

Those who know me well, know that there is no joke that I won’t flog until it is laying on the ground, gasping for breath, and so, we return to our ‘toon theme of last week, pretending that you have done something monumental when you’ve actually been lying on the couch eating bon-bons!

When you care to pretend you’ve sent the very best…Youverest™.  What could possibly go wrong?

This could have serious repercussions!

Panda on!

For those of you who have ordered Pinky stickers and want to put them on a coffee cup, here are some tips! (lest you end up with it sticking your hands together or covering your face):

Thank you for supporting panda satire! Here’s some tips on putting your stickers on the mugs: 

1. Clean, dry, (and empty!) flat sided mug (aka standard boring mugs)
2. DO NOT remove backing yet
3. Put a smallish piece of removable tape on one end of the sticker, and use that to position & anchor sticker to mug
4. Starting from the taped end, smooth & hold sticker around the curve of the mug. Lay the mug on it’s side to give yourself an extra hand
5. The backing is in sections, so with one hand holding the mug down, use your other hand to remove the backing on the free end of the sticker, and carefully smooth onto the mug.
6. Remove the tape from the other end
7. Starting from the attached end of the sticker, remove the backing one section at a time and smooth down as you go.
8. I recommend hand-washing for longer Pinky life of your mug
Enjoy your favorite beverage with Pinky!

Coffee tastes better when you have it with Pinky!
