It looks like we are getting a treat today, although, I’m sure that 45 and his band of like minded GOP goons have more than a few tricks up their sleeves. I’m pretty sure that the vote on the next phase of the Impeachment inquiry won’t make them happy, and they will commence to activate more delaying tactics and cries of “UNFAIR!”
The phrase “be careful what you wish for” springs to mind!
…Something more innocent than the current Nooz cycle, that is! (inky can hardly be described as innocent!) When the current occupant (occupier?) of the White House behaves like a pouting toddler, we need some junior pandas to raise the level of discussion.
Where will it all end? I have no idea, but I will keep drawing pandas as long as I can!
Don’t you ebber knock?
Hey! What about more PINS????
For those who are wondering (you were, weren’t you?) I have decided not to do another round of pins and patches before the end of the year. I find I have not nearly enough year left, or energy to add this into the rest of the year. Never fear, I have so many ideas and I really want them to come into being, so the pin/patch project will return after the new year.
That said, I do still have inventory of all the previous pins, including some slightly less than perfect pins that I can sell at a lower price. So, if you want to do a little holiday shopping, feel free to contact me via the Contact Page. (This is the most reliable method, as FB and Twitter messages can get lost in the shuffle, and don’t even think about asking via a comment thread. The likelihood of me seeing that is less than 50%!)
I’ll try to get things packed and shipped out to you as soon as I can. I usually go to the post office once or twice a week. (I am not Amazon!)
OOPS! I forgot to set this up last night, as I am still recovering from my little bout of the flu. So here we are, just a little late. 😬🙄 In other news, after having this computer since 2011, I JUST figured out how to add emojis to text this year! Innovation!
But on to the NOOZ!
HWMNBN is having an absolute meltdown since Miss Nancy declared that Impeachment Season was open! While 45 continues to obstruct in plain sight, The House marches on, like the panda kindergarten at the cuppycake bar! Needless to say, we here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire will be reporting the panda (and cat!!!) view of the proceedings!
But enough stalling! It’s Impeachment Day! Everybody drink!
It’s been a long time coming. Hope he’ll be a looooong time gone!
Granted, they will not be hosting the Winter Olympics in Beijing until 2022, by which time we could all be dead, but we are so excited that the pandas get another chance to compete! Of course some sort of panda-like mascot has been selected for the 2022 Olympics. Predictably, some have criticized the Olympic committee for “lack of creativity” in choosing a panda as the mascot. To this we say: WHAT ARE YOU FREAKIN’ NUTS???? IT’S A PANDA! OF COURSE THEY CHOSE A PANDA! GET A GRIP!
In honor of this momentous honor for pandas, let’s look back on Panda Olympics past! Huzzah! It’s a double dose of pandas because we REALLY need them!
another boring rerun
Did the Torch Bears take a wrong turn????
This cartoon is one of Bob’s earliest appearances!
The Pandas first attempt at Olympic Glory!
Never underestimate the power of a good “fart joke”
We would like to point out that there were NO TORCH BEARS near the Cathedral of Notre Dame when it caught on fire.
Love the hobby horse on a spring (inspired by a REAL photo of a REAL panda on one.
I keep hearing the song “bears on the Run” going through my head…the ski run, that is!
Uh oh! has there been Russian tampering with the selection of the Torch Bears?
Hey! watch where you put that torch!
Hey! What are you two doing up on top of the ski jump?
Let Pinky be Pinky!
Skate faster, Boo boo!
Four pandas are better than two.
The world swoons….

Also, if you had on your Impeachment Bingo™️ Card, “Conspired on a recorded phone call with a foreign leader to influence election,” mark your card for triple points!
It does seem that I am running double speed and still staying behind the times, behind the curve, behind the eight-ball. So, you will forgive me (I hope!) that I share this little behind the scenes look a bit late, at Bubba’s Birthday Eve! I am happy to report that he did not flunk cake this year (huzzah!) but he MIGHT have, if he did not have a little help getting to his birthday bash on time!
Better safe than sorry, when it comes to your Birthday party, Bubba!
It does not pay to be late! You don’t want to flunk cake again, do you, Boo Boo?
Well, and the ordering too. Thanks so much to everyone who supported my latest project, and thanks to all of you who read my ‘toons every week. It’s always a delicate balance in asking people to support what I do when I take to the crowd-funding arena. You should know, that if you are reading my work, you are helping to support my work, even if you’re not in a place where you can support it financially.
The first time I created a Kickstarter project, I was so nervous that no one would think giving me money to go to Italy was a good idea But people did, and I learned much about how to ask for, and how to accept your help with grace and gratitude. I know that not everyone is in a position to buy things that don’t have a purpose, other than to remember fun, and to bring a smile to your face when you look at it.
I hope reading these ‘toons bring you joy and resolve, see what humor exists even in trying times, and helps you get through these “interesting” times we find ourselves in. Plus, making fun of mean people is kind of…um…enjoyable.
Back when I was freshly out of college, I had moved up to Western MA, and worked in a variety of restaurants, while trying to keep painting. The split shift I usually worked, didn’t leave a lot of time for painting on work days, so I fell into watching soap operas during my several off hours. The Young and the Restless was one show I remember.
But in Pinky’s case, it should be The Young and the Relentless!
Watch out, Bubba! Pinky is on the loose!
Bubba and Ping pins should be arriving soon! If you missed an opportunity, send me a message or comment!
I just received an email yesterday, with pictures of the Bubba and Ping pins, which have just landed at Pin Game Strong. I’ll have them in my hot liddle paws by the end of next week, and then packaged and off to YOU, the following week! Read on to see the pictures they sent me of the pins!
But meanwhile, since this is Bubba’s turn at fame (settle down, Pinky!) …(oh and don’t forget Ping!) It only seems fair that we feature some of Bubba’s ‘toons from the archive this week!
Get your bowl of frosting, sit back, and enjoy the show. We’ll head back to the fight for Democracy tomorrow!
He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!
Feed me, Mama!
Happy 100th day Birthday! More frosting!
What the well dressed panda cub is wearing this season!
I didn’t THINK that Pinky knew the “share” word.
See? I told you it was broken!
Maybe Bubba is having a Halloween SEASON! Did you ever think of THAT, Pinky?
Aw, Pinky…Bubba loves you!
And because you’ve been so supportive (not to mention patient…)
The Bubba and his friends patch!
yes! This is the actual pin!
Don’t forget Ping Ping!…Ping!

PS: Did you miss our Kickstarter? Do you mebbee want some pins and patches? Stay tuned! There will be opportunities to catch up in the next round of pins later this month!
