Some weeks I have a time to expound upon, and then I look for archived ‘toons that illuminate that theme. Other weeks I have no idea what I’m thinking of and then I just have to spin the wheel and see what pops up.
One thing you can be sure of, it’s likely that Pinky will be involved!
Well…no Pinky in that one! let’s try again!
Well as Pinky all says, you can never have enough ‘toons about Pinky!
I always felt that Bubba was something of an intellectual. Perhaps he will major in English Literature in college!
Here’s his poem!
Meanwhile, Pinky is all “is dis a dagger I sees before me right before I stick it into your…” just before Mommee Mei sends her to her room for a time out. Meanwhile did you you hear something go “poof”????
I hope you have been able to forget for a few minutes, while you read this ‘toon, the live action 3-D full immersion via the GQP, into the Handmaid’s Tale.
How is it May already? School seems like it just started and here we are rolling up to summer. Have the panda kids learned anything from Beary Poppins?
The Nooz continues to be grim. Mittens won’t shut up and go away. The Supremes are ready to take away the rights of women, and that doesn’t seem to be where they will stop. The rights of anyone who is not a christian, white, straight, male are being challenged everywhere you look. Abortion and the right to choose has been the law of the land since I became an adult. It’s time to raise our voices, show up and vote these jerks out of office. (I realize we can’t vote SCOTUS out, be we can vote for Democrats up and down the ballot.)
Yesterday one of my pandemic ‘toons popped up in someone’s time line, so I thought I would revisit the pandas experience of the Panda-demic.
There is always excitement in store when Six and Sebben show up. Mei must have been desperate to suggest this. I bet she won’t make that mistake again!
I just sent a check for $500 off to the Whatcom Humane Society, thanks to everyone who ordered a felty support kitty! There are still 6 more available, so check out the Felties Revisited page for information on ordering!
Till Tuesday (when I WILL have a new ‘toon) Be the Bear! Bob T Panda
It was 50 years ago in April when when the Nixon Pandas came to live in DC. They were not the first pandas to arrive in the US…that honor goes to Su Lin the first, who lived for several years at the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago.
But 50 years of pandas at the Smithsonian National Zoo is a big milestone to celebrate. The arrival of Mei Xiang and Tian Tian, after the deaths of Ling Ling and Hsing Hsing was cause for celebration. The pictures of Mei Xiang as a demure cubbie make my heart sing.
Who would have imagined the bounty of cubbies, from Tai Shan to our beloved miracle, Xiao Qi Ji (aka Bikkie), who arrived when we thought all hope had flown.
I tried to ignore those enigmatic tweets, full of little black, yellow, and green boxes in up to 6 rows of 5. On further investigation, I was still clueless, because, well, Wordle has no clues!
Eventually I figured it out and now I am hooked. Lucky for me, they only let you play one game per day, and everyone gets the same word. The new days’ word drops right at midnight in your time zone. Out of 7 games so far, I have figured out all 7. My best is figuring it out in 3 rows, which I have done 3 times!
I’m not sure how Pinky’s game will work out. I think Mommee Mei might protest the paywall…
Yes, yes, yes, we are still in our Year in Review, but first, some ground shaking news from The White House:
There is now a cat living in The White House once again!!!!
I know Mehitabel is already making plans to have Willow here for an interview with ZooNooZ. I’m sure she is very busy getting settled in, as is to be expected! We will have her here as soon as possible. After all, there are the Lunar New Year’s celebrations as well as the Panda-O-Lympics to get through!
And now, on with the Year in Review, continued!
Meanwhile, events at the Panda House are still a little…um…weird.
On to August! Bebe Maurice gets to work on the family portrait!
Will Mister Poppee return for Bikkie’s first Birthday?
There will be another Year in Review post to come. And some other things happening during the week, don’t ask me what!
