Will We Be Hearing From Nixon’s Ghost Soon?

A dive into the archives to revisit past sightings…

All together now!
“crime” is not a verb
Won’t he just go away?
Nixon’s ghost just won’t go away!

Will Nixon’s Ghost return yet again? What do you think?

Oh no! Nixon’s Ghost is back AGAIN!!!

I guess it’s hard to stay away, what with all the indictable offenses going on.

“crime” is not a verb

Panda Commerce Alert!!!

Hey guys! I just got an email from the folks that make my pins, and they are expanding their product lines into SOCKS!!!! I am working on some designs, but if anyone thinks they might be interested in getting some Panda Chronicles socks, please speak up! I’ll share more info soon, but just wanted to put this out there.
I’m thinking about a Pinky themed sock pair, and Bubba themed! More to come if there is interest. Please chime in, in the comments, if you think this is a good idea. I’m also working on setting up a little store with remaining pins and patches.

The Ghost of Nixon Complains About Trump

Well, this is certainly the pot calling the kettle a crook, isn’t it? It’s hard not to simultaneously feel like the current constitutional crisis has echoes of the Watergate and Nixon scandals, and also that Nixon’s crimes were quaint. (Hint: they weren’t, but at least in that era there was still some sense that the constitutional checks and balances would keep the country from completely going off the rails.)

Let’s see what the ghost of Nixon thinks about how the current administration is doing.

Can’t ghosts have opinions too?

That bad, huh?

Panda History: More about the Nixon Pandas

It’s true.  Sometimes I just can’t help being just the tiniest bit silly (As if you hadn’t noticed) but I crack myself up whenever I call Ling Ling and Tsing Tsing “the Nixon Pandas.”  It’s really not my fault.  In The Way of the Panda, that’s how writer Henry Nicholls refers to them  in the chapter about panda diplomacy.  Sometimes I really am NOT making things up.  (but only rarely)  Anyway, there have been several stories and articles floating around the internet about the 40th anniversary of Ling Ling and Tsing Tsing arriving in Washington D.C.

I hereby give you my version of the panda historical events 40 years ago this week.

What would I do, if  I ran out of boo’,

Would I have to have a cuppycake?

Sorry, I didn't have a photo of Abbey Road.....

OK, I got it out of my system now….

And a quick note of complete self involvement here,  I’m about to reach 25,000 visits to The Panda Chronicles, and I couldn’t have done it without YOU, the panda satire fans around the world!  So huzzah!  (well, maybe I could have done it, but my guess is that I would have to spend all my time visiting this blog from a lot of different computers.)  Thanks for stopping by to play with the pandas!

And on to further panda business (that’s sort of like monkey business, except for it’s pandas instead of monkeys)  I’ve finished my revisions for Pandamorphosis and am ready to start sending it out again to publishers. Here’s one of the new drawings:
