Beware, the Ides of Pinky!

Hey, it’s the Ides of March today, March 15th! I’m not entirely sure what the reference is from, but I think it might be something Shakespearean.

With that in mind…

After all, the playings the thing….

As people hunker down into self isolation or quarantine, it has been suggested that you read or watch something funny or uplifting to counter each thing you read about COVID19 or HWMNBN.

The Panda Chronicles is here to help!

Mr. Wu was very expressive and creative...By request!

We are sailing in uncharted waters. All schools in Washington State are closed, people are being asked to self isolate, voluntarily for now. I’m doing what I can to say home (actually, pretty easy as I work at home) and not amass ridiculous quantities of toilet paper and canned soup. (I do need to up my frosting supply! I need to keep my strength up!)

For now, the best service I can provide to humanity is to share funny stuff, so here we go!

The panda kindergarten at their best…or is that worst?

All salute the sacred cuppycake!

Pandanastics star, PO of Atlanta Zoo, practices for the Olympics, while the Torch Bears continue their around the world journey. Where will they turn up next?

This looks kind of dangerous, doesn’t it?

Maybe Pandas DO have a better idea…..

Princess Pinky helps with new years resolutions

You say you want a resolution, well, you know, it is hard to change a bear….

deleted footage from press conference

Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.

And remember, the best advice we can give you to stay healthy is…

Can you calibrate the cuppycake?

Stay safe, everyone! let’s be careful out there!

I can’t afford to lose any readers!

Panda on!

As a former Pennsylvanian, I am required by law…

…to celebrate Groundhogs Day!

In light of that fact (because we here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire know that NO ONE is above the law), we present to you, the first appearance in these ‘toons, of the one, the only, Punxutawney Phil!!!

Please hold your applause!

Phil is kind of excitable, isn’t he?

I’ve noticed that many of the smaller guest animals here are rather feisty! 

Be the bear everyone!

Still More from the Impeachment Chronicles

Just in case you were wondering, HWMNBN is still impeached and will be impeached through all of eternity and beyond. Forever. If you were, indeed, wondering. No matter how many newspapers he waves in the air (and we just don’t care) he will always be impeached. He is becoming rapidly more unhinged, if his rant at the Prayer Breakfast last week is any indication.

But we have important things to do here. We should not give in to despair, no matter how much we would like to pull the covers over our heads (believe me, I know!) The first mailing of Tiny Emotional Support Pandas went out this morning! Huzzah! Emotional support pandas are on the way!

I’ve been making different pandas randomly, as my mood takes me, and the first group to head out was the original Hold Me closer Tiny Panda group (everybody sing!). Next up will be the basic Pinky pandas. (As differentiated from Special Pinky!) Now more than ever, we all need tiny pandas!

But first, what’s happening on ZooNooZ?

What did Mr. Bun Know and when did he know it?

Hold on to your hats, panda fans!

#ImpeachmentIs4Ever

Australia is STILL burning…

The Iowa caucuses are happening as I type. I hope we Dems can choose a candidate without crippling them. There are good things I can say about much of the pack, and I am truly sorry that Booker, Castro, and Harris are not still among them. I have my current fave, but who ever wins the Democratic nomination, that’s my candidate.

I have not been able to watch or listen to the impeachment trial proceedings, except in small doses. Adam Schiff is inspiring and it gives me some small glimmer of hope that there are still people serving this country who have our best interests at heart.

We aren’t going to get everything on our wish list in one candidate. The important thing to remember, is that I don’t think this country can survive 4 more years of HWMNBN and his band of evil minions.

Meanwhile, can we send some of our rain to Australia?

Do I smell smoke?

I’m working on my lists of happy panda recipients, and I’m hoping that my packing materials arrive soon, so I can start sending out the first group of pandas! I am happily making pandas in my little panda workshop and it is doing it’s job in keeping me off the internet quite so much! Huzzah!

Keep being the Bear!

Will Democracy Collapse?

Geez…new s**t has come to light!!! Can you believe all the information that is hitting the ether? Thank goodness I have so many little pandas to felt! (you are not too late! Check it out HERE!)

Poor Bob is a bit stressed out though! Maybe he needs to take up needle felting too! Oh…wait…I am Bob. Bob is me. Where is Mehitabel? In Memorium: Mehitabel- 1996-2017

Sorry I’m “late”

Meanwhile, Mehitabel lives on in The Panda Chronicles

Reality is scary!!!

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!

And a Pinky in a Hemlock Tree!

I was going to give you all a break this year, and not re-run The Twelve Days of Crispmoss, but by popular demand (okay, one person) we return with this holiday classic!!!

Everyone sing along!

feel free to sing along.

I can’t hear anyone singing…..

I swear, I had nothing to do with Pinky’s let night sit in.

Day 4- 31 Days of Pandas

It’s Day 4 of 31 Days of Pandas! The panda socks have arrived, and I’m going to spend this evening  packing and organizing (and then watching movies and felting pandas!) Tomorrow there will be another new ‘toon and then on Friday, there will be more from Pinky in Wonderland.

The post about the lions that ate the rhino poachers showed up on Twitter this week, so I thought that today’s encore presentation could be this series from The Animal Justice League!

Karma is a bitch, isn’t it?

Ooooooo-oooo-oooo-we have food tonight…

Here kitty kitty…nice kitty…

“We just want to talk!”

and then there was this story…

Limpopo

What goes around, comes around.

You just can’t trust crocodiles.

Panda On!

We hardly got to know you…

I know everyone is still feeling very sad, at the departure of our “little bear”. It has been bittersweet, what with all the posts on Twidder and Fezbook of Bubba when he was weally widdle. Hopefully, another round of ‘toons of Bubba’s childhood along with the trials and tribulations of being the little brother to an international super star and Smifsonian Icon, will make everyone just a little less sad.

Thanks for all who posted the pictures of him in his new home. I really loved the BFX base. We spent 2 days there visiting pandas. The yards are large (at least as large as Bubba’s yard back home) and full of mature trees. From the pictures, it looked like many of the trees in his yard did not have tree guards, so he gets to do his favorite activity, climbing. While he had a similar reaction as Pinky had to his first introduction to panda bread, he seems happy about all the bamboo shoots!

Let’s have some Bubba ‘toons, okay?

And then there was the day he had to figure out what to wear for his debut…

How IS this different from Pinky’s normal bossiness?

Funny how Pinky sneaks in to almost all of Bubba’s ‘toons!

My! You are quite the good looking fellow!

You keep using that word “share”, mommee!

Bubba: but why should I be in trubble?

I’ll talk! I’ll talk!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

“If Pinky is grounded, can I have her dessert?”

uh oh…

What do you mean you left a note saying they are at my house?

Bubba is having so much fun with his new friends!

Hey! Where did Bubba and Mr. Bun go?

I hope you enjoyed this extra big Birthday Season* dose of pandas! Like bubba says, we might be da victims of a repressive regime, so we need all the pandas (and laughs) we can get! Panda on everyone!

 

Be da (widdle) Bear!

*Yes, it is STILL my birthday season!!!! 

It’s Unconsditooshunal!

The impeachment inquiry labors on, with dedicated career civil servants and military veterans making the hard choice to speak out about corrupt doings coming from the Grifter in Chief, and the R’s try to throw as much shade, mud, and dancing elephants at them, since they have nothing more than “if the president does it, it’s not corrupt” as a defense.

Meanwhile, real life Bei Bei has begun his long journey to his ancestral homeland, and we are all sad! It is injury on top of the insult of this “administration.”

Even Pinky would do a better job, me thinks…

Pinky can’t be indicted!

Panda on!
Bob T Panda!
