It’s going to be a long, hot summer…

…and probably not in a good way.

I have to admit, the last couple days have been very hard. More than 100,000 people have died in the US from COVID19. Protests have turned into riots, which seem to be fueled by HWMNBN pouring gasoline on the flames, as well as the very real possibility that those white supremacist groups that showed up at state Capitols with not so much as a slap on the wrist, are showing up, to increase the violence and use the (mostly) peaceful protesters as cover.

HWMNBN’s Liar General is claiming that these are “radical left extremists.” I’m pretty sure this is a lie. Audible violence is mere blocks away from the homes of people I care about. I am safe (for the moment) in my forest hideaway and feel very fortunate that this is so.

There is not much I can do from here, besides send adorable, funny pandas out into the world.

Here ya go!

Our lack of taste is only exceeded by our sense of the absurd.

And just how did the panda kindergarten get her address?

Who’s the bear???!!!

Varooooooomba! Thanks to Lynnie Ness for alerting us to the “off label” use of the Roomba robot vacuum cleaner.

this old den 2nd episode

The panda kindergarten is so very helpful.

He’s small for now, but Bubba Bei Bei is shaping up to be a whole lot of panda!

This one is still my favorite:

See? I told you it was broken!

I hope these ‘toons with no whiff of HWMNBN helped heal your hearts a little this morning! Panda on, everyone!

Many thanks to those who are sharing pictures of your newly arrived panda masks! They are absolutely adorable, and it gives me great pleasure to know that Pinky, Bubba, Bee (the Bear) and young Pirate Wu are keeping you all safe! 

Take care everyone!
Wands Up!
Stay Safe!

When Enough Fun is More Than Enough!

Poor Mommee Mei…She generously invited the Meihems and Six and Sebben, the Cublanta twins, to come and stay with Bubba and Pinky, thinking that they would keep Pinky distracted and under control. Hahahahahahahaha! Me thinks Mommee Mei is having a bit of a memory problem.

Perhaps it’s time for all the twins to go home…

Can you say, “make my booting a double?”

Well bless their hearts!

It’s Mourning in America …

Before we get to our weekly round-up of pandas, I just want to give voice to the thought that is in most of our minds. This Monday is Memorial Day, the day we, as Americans, pause to remember those who died protecting our country in the armed services. By tomorrow, more than 100,000 people will have died in this country from COVID 19.

Academic statistical models tell us that had we only started physical distancing and stay at home orders one week earlier, we would have less than half this number of deaths. We can’t change the past, but we can still influence the future. stay home if you can. Wear a mask if you can’t. While you still might have to go to work, do what you can to maintain distancing and stay out of crowded situations when you are able.

Do we want this all to be over? You bet! Is it going to happen immediately? Probably not. What helps me is keeping in touch with my friends and the panda online community.  Is constantly reading political commentary helpful? Probably not, but it does give me some good material for ‘toons, amIright? Better to spend more time watching panda videos.

So, let’s see what pandas have to say about all this…

March

Whats a protest without pandas?

inauguration

Hey, save some cuppycakes for me!

international woman's day

…and due to the International women’s day strike of 2017

Would YOU believe this panda?

reality

Do we HAVE to go?

And, even truer now, than they were two years ago….

Just how crazy do we think it’s going to get?

Next to Mittens, we all look pretty normal, don’t we?

Someone forgot to take their meds today, I think.

Lock that cat up, for crying out loud!

We shall overcome, but only if we remember to vote, all the way up and down the ticket! Don’t forget, ‘kay?

 

Panda On, Everyone!

Thanks to Jon Oliver who alerted us to this great new sporting event!

 

No Pandas Were Harmed…

…in the drawing of this cartoon.

There will certainly be more hijinks at The Panda House (don’t forget, Six and Sebben, and the Meihems are still visiting!) but for now, safety and sanity (???) return to Mommee Mei’s charges.

Of course with Pinky, peace and quiet never lasts for long!

Pinky: now where did I leave Daddee’s Panda Express card…

What will happen next? I guess we’ll have to wait and see!

Bee the Bear!
Bob T Panda

 

Maybe it’s time for Mommee Mei to take up knitting…

Let’s see…now where did we leave the little darlings of the Panda House? (Look here to see the previous episode, if you need to get up to date!)

Oh yeah…Pinky got a package!

Cole slaw, anyone?

Panda on, everyone!
Wands up! These are perilous days.

Felty Panda Update:

I am close to being caught up with current felty panda requests! I’ll still be taking orders for more, but plan to spend a little time in R&D to experiment with making Banky Pig, Mr. Toasty, Frank and Mikey, and Kevin, the smoking hot Koala! Stay tuned!

And don’t forget to look for Panda Chronicle masks on Redbubble! Stay safe, everyone!

 

Sunday Funday Salutes…Our Pandas to the North

As if the global pandemic was not enough pain for those of us in North America, the Canadian pandas are going to be going back to China. Their bamboo, which is about 99% of their diet, comes from China, flown in every couple days (or is it once a week? I can’t remember and I am too lazy to look it up.) has been hard to come by, what with the flight reductions during the pandemic.  Most pandas have a preference for the bamboo they like to eat, and even if the US and Canada weren’t having their own problems, you can’t switch out Seattle boo for Chengdu boo, no matter how convenient that would be.

So, Er Shun and Da Mao are heading back to China, much to our dismay.

Meanwhile, HWMNBN continues to throw tantrums, tell lies about the scope of the pandemic and I’m guessing, will be tweeting up a s**tstorm after the inspiring speech that President Barak Obama gave at the Virtual Commencement on Saturday. It was nice to be reminded what someone with empathy and intelligence sounds like.

But it’s Sunday and that means it’s time for some pandamonium! Let’s look back at the ‘toons about the Canadian pandas and the place they held in the world of Panda Satire!

Pinky and the Twinkies, eh?

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

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?

Hey! watch where you put that torch!

It’s a good thing that Pinky taught Bubba how to use Skype!

Packing is such a chore! And a surprise visit from a friend can make it go so much faster!

long goodbye

The Long Goodbye, or “Toronto Farewell”

our story

Mommee pandas have laser vision. Don’t even think you can hide, Bubba.

There’s always time for another cupcake!!!

So THAT’S how Pinky got there so quickly!

I wonder what this button over here does….AAAAAHHHHHHHH!

 

By the way, it sounds like masks are shipping over at Redbubble! If you need some masks, wouldn’t you breathe a little easier if they had pandas on them?

Be(e) the Bear!

🎶You Say You Want a Revolution…🎶

Let them eat cuppycakes?

HWMNBN is not wasting any time getting his authoritarian game on. I sincerely hope we all do not die before this pandemic is over, and that the damage done by 45’s Reign of Terror can be repaired. Is it any wonder, Pinky has let her paws go tappity tapping through the shopping channel on Pandazon?

Did Pinky put this on Daddee’s Panda Express card?

Editors note: I am reeling from the news that Calgary’s pandas are going back to China three years early (four, if Er Shun had another cub) I am so sad that I won’t get to see them again, and also sad for their panda care team, which I know really loves their bears. I think maybe on Sunday we will have a tribute to the Canadian pandas, what say you? I’m sure I’ll have something to say about it by then.

Panda on!

The “Best” of Mittens…

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahahhahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahhahahhhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahhahahahahahahhahahhahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha

Whew! I needed that.

As we know, there is nothing “Be best” about Mittens. As one of the panda faithful on #PandaTwitter said, “We need you to keep making fun of Mittens so that we can keep our sanity.*”

*Or something like that.

So let’s climb into the wayback machine and revisit some of our ‘toons that reveal just what kind of cat Mittens is. (spoiler: he’s a bad cat)

It is too much to BEAR!

Be afraid. Be very afraid.

“You are all Losers!” – Mittens the Cat

Pinky is beginning to look positively presidential!

“This is not a loser tail!!!!!”

Poof!

And so it began…

March

Whats a protest without pandas?

happening

Are all these paper clips mine?

Memorial day

Don’t be endangered, be dangerous

Clear as mud!

Things are about as real as they can get.

Well, that’s about all of Mittens we can stand this week. Tune in next Sunday for more of Mittens’ crimes against humanity! Remember, laughing is a great form of resistance. If we quit laughing, the reign of terror has won. Don’t let him win and vote the bums out in November!

Keep panda-ing on!

Surely You Didn’t Think Pinky would Get Away Unscathed, Did You?

Too bad for Pinky that her little brother and his friend Ping Ping, and their cousins from Atlanta are getting a little more assertive! She can’t get away with nearly as much Pinky-like behavior without them striking back!

Do you remember this old joke?

You better go catch it!!!

The old jokes are not forgotten. Sometimes they even get to be president!

Panda On!

Felty Panda NooZ!

As of today, with the exception of one package that the person is not ready to receive yet (She probably wants to do some special shopping for Pinky!), ALL the felty pandas from the Kickstarter project have gone out! This is exciting because it means:

  1. I have made about 200 felty pandas thus far
    and
    2. I have already started of the recent new felty panda orders! (you know who you are!) I will email you as your pandas are ready to travel. Thanks to my newly mastered skill of printing flat rate priority mail labels from home, I can mail things without having to dawdle around the post office for long stretches of time! Huzzah!

May the Fourth Be With You ( day late, but…)

Even though I saw the original Star Wars movie when it came out, it took me years to get this joke. What can I say? Sometimes I am not all that on top of things.

Meanwhile, COVID19 rages on as does the Malignant Orange Menace. Wearing masks is recommended and so the good folks at Redbubble added masks to their line up of products that artists can add their creative stamp to.  If you need a mask, I hope you’ll check out my offerings at Redbubble!

Meanwhile, Pinky has decided to contribute to the mask making cause…in her own way, of course…

Wait…we get paid?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Just one of the new designs for my shop at Redbubble!
