Happy Friendsgiving

It’s time for that holiday that is celebrated in the good old US of A, you know, the one where you get together with family you don’t particularly want to see, argue with Uncle George about what the current “resident” of the WH is really up to, the one where you eat way too much of food you don’t really like and then it’s time for PIE!

Once I moved far, far from home, and got to have this holiday extravaganza with friends of my own choosing, my attitude changed somewhat. (I do like pie, and why doesn’t anyone still make the sweet potato casserole with melted marshmallows on top?) I continue to be thankful for spending time with people I love.

Princess Pinky says, she is thankful for cuppycakes and da panda kindygarten and her magical wand!

And now we know about all the cultural/genocidal implications of our first National Holiday, which I won’t get into here, but need to be acknowledged. That makes celebrating this holiday kind of cringe-worthy, and yet…

I think it is a good thing to be thankful for the many things that have come our way. If we can separate the history of white europeans invading these shores, and all that followed afterward (because, if you aren’t an indigenous person, you are an immigrant no matter how many generations ago your ancestors got here) I think that is okay to have a holiday in which we acknowledge what we are thankful for.

So here’s a list of some of the things I’m thankful for:

Artistic talent
Good health
A home of my own
Trees that surround my house
People who appreciate (and buy!) my art, my writing and panda satire
Did I remember to mention pandas?
Friends who like to visit pandas
Art museums
Scottish terriers
A convenient grocery store

I could go on!

Coffee tastes better when you have it with Pinky!

But meanwhile, it’s time to get ready for 31 Days of Pandas!!!!

That’s something we should all be thankful for! As we head into full on impeachment mode, we may be watching, in real time, the 45th “president” of these here United States dissolve, self destruct, maybe even burst into flames in front of our very eyes! We are going to need all the funny we can get if we want to get through this alive!

PS: There is still time to get in on my fabulous felt panda-palooza! For all the info, read this post!

A little late but not (entirely) forgotten

Yes, yes, it’s Fabulous Furry Friday, but what with the American Thanksgiving holiday, I was so busy in the kitchen that I never had time to prepare todays encore presentation post. Never fear, I am here now, and here are some toons from the way back machine to cheer your weekend.

I know I ran this one already, but it is appropriate to the day, don’t cha know?

pass the beans!

While we’re thinking of food…

‘Tis the Season!

Bob, Bob, Bob…when will you ever learn?

And a Happy Thanksgiving Weekend to you all!

Panda On!

What part of “I win” don’t you understand?

Oh my, Bob is in it up to his furry little eyeballs!  Tune in tomorrow to see further debates between Bob and…that…that CAT!!!!!

But we do not want to leave you panda-less (not to mention pants-less) another day, so we bring you another selection from the best of pandas archive here at The Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire!  Those of you in the US may have noticed that Thanksgiving is a little early this year, and retailers are not wasting any time getting out announcements of “Black Friday” sales, or as we like to refer to it as, “Black and White Friday”….

Black friday shopping tactics

Ah, fall…or something…is in the air!

As the year comes to a close, I invite you to invite three or more friends to join us at the Panda Chronicles! Wouldn’t it be cool if we could reach 50,000 views and 200 followers by the end of the year?  Well, I think it would be cool, but maybe that’s just me.  We can do this, panda fans!

Be the Bear!

I am most thankful for pandas, especially panda #24

I hope all of you who celebrate Thanksgiving will have a wonderful day, spent with people you actually like.  And for those of you who don’t celebrate this American holiday, I hope you have a lovely day too.  Back to sarcasm and snottiness tomorrow!

Be the Bear!
