We’re Back with Episode 17 of Pandarella!

Because we absolutely need some fairy tales right now!

We’ll rant more about current events in our Thursday episode. Meanwhile, let’s see what Bikkie’s fairy god-pandas have been up to…

Six and Sebben will NEBBER recognize Bikkie in his red panda disguise!

Pinky Had Something to Say

Pandarella will be back next week, but in the meantime, Pinky had something that was really bothering her. (And you know we can’t ignore what Pinky wants)

The stoopyhead Supremes have a LOT to answer for.

I know that all sorts of news stories are avalanching around the internet and news media right now. I hope you’ll all take a deep breath and get more than one look at all of these stories from as many sources as you can find.

For me, here’s how it shakes down:
If Biden is the D candidate, I’m voting for Biden
If Harris is the D candidate, I’m voting for Harris
If Pinky is the D candidate, I’m voting for Pinky

3rd party candidates are just a vote for TFG.

Please read even some “highlights” of the rethuglican Project 2025. They cannot be allowed to put this into practice.

Independence…or Else

I told you a rant was coming…

This has been a really hard week to wrap my head around. First the disastrous commentary on Biden’s debate performance. Granted, the debate was pretty terrible. Biden’s low energy and general demeanor was not ideal. But neither was TFG’s non- stop firehose of lies.

It’s disgusting that the media, particularly the NYT and the pundit class were all baying for Biden’s blood, and at the same time ignoring and minimizing his busy schedule and strong, stirring speeches at these events (G-7! D-Day! Major fundraisers in NY and CA! President stuff!) and completely ignoring the lies of a 34 times convicted felon who lies more than he breathes.

The only newspaper that had the guts to say, “Hey, maybe the guy who has been convicted of 34 felonies, stole national nuclear secrets and tried to over throw an election…maybe HE should step down,” was the Philadelphia Inquirer.

Honestly, I don’t know if he should step down or not. Only Joe Biden knows, and an overwhelming number of primary contest voters voted for him. I can’t imagine the chaos it would cause if he did. I’m against anything that hands the election to You Know Who. If you haven’t read about the Heritage Foundation’s Project 2025, you should at least read some summaries. For starters, they want to replace career civil servants with TFG loyalists. They want a national abortion ban, gutting of all regulations and the agencies that regulate them. You like clean air? too bad. We can’t tell polluting corporations what to do. You think there should be public education? Nope. That’s out. Medicare, medicaid, Social Security: they’re all on the chopping block. But don’t worry. You won’t live long enough to need elder care.

And then there is the “Supreme” Court…

What. The. Actual. Fuck.

On this, the day that the Declaration of Independence was signed, the document that said all men (well, white men, no women or POC need apply) are created equal and no one is above the fucking law, well…the Heritage Foundation Federalist Society Justices, just said, “New phone, who dis?”

In essence they put themselves above the law, as what they laid out seems to have been, “well, we’ll tell you if we think the president has immunity for this or that act, or not.” They opened the door to lawless corruption from the White House, and no way to rein it in. I’m not a historian, but I’ve listened to enough historians in the last several days to know that wasn’t what the authors of the Constitution intended.

I don’t mean to rain on anyone’s parade or picnic (pass the marshymallows!) I just had to get this out of my head. In the meantime…

Here are some pandas!

The only way out is through, and the only way through is to vote like everyone’s life depends on it. They want us to be demoralized and stay home. Don’t fall for it.

Pandarella Episode 11

The story continues and you probably won’t like this one either.

But don’t worry, Bikkie’s fortunes are going to change really soon! I mean…Mittens got 34 guilty verdicts in NYC! That means anything is possible.*

*Except for the discovery of more than 1 contiguous brain cell in Marge’s head.

Should be an exciting next couple of weeks, on the page and off! Hang in there everyone!

Oreos and Bears and Pandas, Oh My!

Ya know, I thought about doing something about the trial today, and then I thought, “nah…I don’t want to jinx it by assuming you know who would be found GUILTY GUILTY GUILTY,” so instead I planned this nice little ‘toon about Oreo, the Oreo stealing bear, and THEN, what happens at like 5 AM yesterday morning, my text messages start blowing up with nooz of Binky Li coming to Washington DC, so this time procrastinating worked to my advantage, because I could work the arrival of Binky Li and his girl fren into the ‘toon.

So here ya go! I’m pretty sure Nixon’s ghost will pop in next week to gloat over TFG’s 34 COUNT GUILTY VERDICT.

There will be champagne popping and dancing in the streets tonight. Hopefully the gun totting minions of TFG will be kept under control. Be happy and stay safe, panda friends. We have two new sets of bears to welcome later this year!

Enjoy some Oreos and milk and no double dipping!

You Are Probably Not Going to Like Today’s Episode…

Pandarella Episode 10

Out in the real world, a bear in a town in California has developed a taste for Oreo cookies. Rumor has it he is going to be interviewed by ZooNooZ later this week! Won’t that be fun?

If you enjoy reading about my fine art life, I’m writing a series about my upcoming show over on Substack. You can find it here. I’m planning on writing about one of my paintings for my upcoming show at Rob Schouten Gallery later in the summer.

Meanwhile, Pinky is hoping that you will support her candidacy by wearing Pinky merch! Redbubble often has sales, so keep your eye on the webpage. For now, stickers ship for free to US addresses. Here is the image for Pinky’s 2024 Cubpaign!

Our Story Continues: Pandarella, Episode 9

Here we are again. You know the drill: Fairy tale, wicked stepmother, evil step sisters, bad stuff happens, yada yada yada.

I sure hope Bikkie made good soup. You don’t want to get those evil step sisters mad.

Episode 8 of Pandarella! Things go from bad to WORSE!

We are back with the next episode of Pandarella! and yes, things are not going well for Bikkie. And yes, things are about to get worse.

Deal with it.

Would I be wrong to think that Six and Sebben are enjoying their roles as mini villains?

Coming up on Thursday (or maybe Friday, we’ll have to see, won’t we?) a hard hitting NooZ story about the Woodland Park Pookies (as heard on NPR’s Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me!)

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!
