I mean…what with them finding classified documents at just about every former official’s house, it was only a matter of time before they came looking for what Pinky might have! I’m sure they will be taken in by her “innocent Pinky” look!
This is rather off the subject of pandas and other bears, but I know some of the readers of the Panda Chronicles have from time to time tried their hand at making some art. I wanted to give those folks (and others who like to get a glimpse into the artists process) a heads up. My good friend in real life David Daniels is doing a Zoom demonstration through Daniel Smith’s Art Supply. You can also watch it on Facebook live HERE.
This will take place on Friday, January 27th at 1:30 PM Eastern Standard Time. Dave is a brilliant painter, a kind, funny, and experienced teacher. He lives in the DC area (I made him go with me to see the pandas once or twice, notably when Mei was sequestered with tiny baby Pinky and we watched them on the panda cam in a restaurant. I never did hear the end of that. But I digress.
This is a great opportunity to see Dave in action, in case you were thinking it might be fun to take some painting classes, either in person or on Zoom.
Meanwhile over at Substack…
I shared my annual tribute to Mehitabel, gone from my couch, but never from my heart, and definitely not from art and The ZooNooZ Nooz desk at Panda Chronicles Headquarters. I hope you’ll check it out!
I had a whole thing about Election Day thought up for yesterday’s post, but the windstorm last Friday laid waste to all of my plans! But I KNOW all of my faithful readers are voters so I really didn’t need to nag you, right?
So without further ado, here is the ‘toon I was not able to post yesterday!
The good news is there will be a new ‘toon tomorrow too!
Did you guess the movie reference in the first panel?
Well, gotta run. It’s amazing how far behind you get in your email and everything else when the power has been out for 4 days.
Be the Bear! Bob T is holding out hope for the House remaining blue Panda
Once again, I must point out that we, the crack reporting team at ZooNooZ, had uncovered this story BEFORE the recent revelations of voter fraud broke out regarding that little trollop Holly stuffing the ballot box as if it were a garter belt at a backwoods bear stripper bar.
You can be sure ZooNooZ will be covering this malodorous malfeasance in a future broadcast. But for now, let’s deal with the CURRENT scandal!
How many scandals can one bear?
Be the Bear Bob T is scandal free Panda
Don’t forget to check out my Substack Noozletter. It’s the only place to read The Wizard of Wu this year! Part 2 is now available for your panda-ing pleasure!
Those who know me well, know that there is no joke that, if I think it is funny, that I won’t use at every opportunity. ( I was going to say, “beat to death”, but that’s not really the vibe I want here, ya know?) Ever since the first time I depicted Lun Lun as a rather pampered southern belle, in contrast with her older sister Mei Xiang talking on the phone to each other, it never ceases to crack me up.
Lun Lun’s conniving to send Six and Sebben off to stay with her sister’s family, all while sipping an adult beverage out by the pool, is one of my favorite themes.
Mei Xiang, oddly enough, is less than amused.
Be the bear Bob T bless their hearts Panda
Don’t miss this week’s Substack post for this year’s encore presentation of that halloween classic, the Wizard of Wu!
