Give Pinky all Your Money Now!

Yes, it’s that time of year, when your favorite public radio station starts whining and pleading to get you to support them, and National Pinky Radio is no exception.

I must admit, that I feel a little bad about making fun of a worthy cause, but that’s never stopped me before. I am a big public radio fan, and when I actually have income, I support them with my meager pledge of support. After all, I get some of my best ideas of other things to make fun of from listening to Wait Wait, Don’t Tell Me.

Pinky needs stuff and she needs it now!

And speaking of Princess Pinky (we were speaking of the Princess, weren’t we?)  Newsletter subscribers (at least those who opened their email) have gotten to see a sneak peak of the cover of the next exciting volume collected cartoons,  The Panda Chronicles Book 5: Pandapocalypse NOW! And having done my duty to my most faithful followers, I’m going to show you guys as well!


Are you ready?

It's Pink, but still kinda, um...dangerous!

It’s Pink, but still kinda, um…dangerous!

Pinky whining and pouting all the while graciously agreed to share the book with the Meihem twins of Zoo Atlanta, because…well, she really didn’t have much choice. Actually, so many of their stories are so intertwined that I could hardly separate them out if I wanted to.

There’s more coming up from Inspector Panda this week, as well as a few announcements about Pandamorphosis. Stay tuned, Panda fans!

Fabulous Furry Friday Salutes NPR

…and by that we mean National Panda Radio, of course.  Princess Pinky has taken over the station, as you will see if you tune in on Sunday, but we thought you might enjoy a glimpse of the early days of National Panda Radio!  (Starring Bob as a very young panda!)

One of Bob's earliest appearances on our show!

Day 28! a Furry Friday Cartoon!

You have probably all been wondering where Mehitabel has been this month.  Needless to say, that after the “rigors” of the Kickstarter campaign, she needed a bit of a break.  Today’s cartoons shows that she is back in her panda kindergarten fighting form, ready for action, and hey! No hard feelings, eh, bears?

Several of my faithful followers and supporters have pointed out that they are fans of MEHITABEL, not just those rascally panda kindergarteners and so this cartoon is dedicated to you all!  While apparently, next year is still not “the year of the cat” it is always the year of Mehitabel!

And a quick reminder that you still have a couple more days to order your book The Panda Chronicles book 1: Your Brain on Pandas for $2 off by using this code:


Mehitabel gets even.

Mehitabel gets even.

This really was inspired by a story I heard on NPR and I don’t mean National Panda Radio!  I swear I am not making this up!

From the “I am NOT making this up” department….

I was listening to NPR last night (that’s National Panda Radio, you know) and heard a story about researchers giving orangutans  iPads in order to teach them to communicate with people.  I would respectfully (of course) point out that pandas have been using mePhones for several years in order to track each other (and occasionally order pizza) with great success.

Remember, you heard it here first!

Hooray! Pizza IS a Vegetable!

Woke up to news today on the radio that Michelle Obama was pissed off that schools were allowed to count pizza as a vegetable.  Now, we pandas really like Michelle (so, if you are a republican or tea party enthusiast you can stop reading right now and cancel your subscription) but we think she has crossed the line on this one.  I was really sure that french fries are vegetables too.  I’m still planning on voting for your husband next year, but I think you need to back off on the pizza thing.  I’m just sayin’, ya’ know?  Other than that you are really awesome.

Be the Bear.

The Cruelty of Technology

While we at Way Better Than Working subscribe to the philosophy, “technology when it suits us,” we think things have gone WAY too far!!!!  The other day we heard a report on NPR (that’s National Panda Radio, in case you’ve forgotten) which talks about the new generation of…gasp… I can hardly say the word…bathroom scales.  We, of course, threw ours out years ago, because it interfered with our devotion to cuppycakes, so imagine our horror when we heard that they had come out with a scale thast could post the results directly to twitter.  Is there no end to the dastardlyness of inventors of new gizmos and gadgets?  What IS a panda to do?

Be the Bear, of course!

Cuppycakes, anyone?
