…One Giant Panda for Bearkind!!! Yes, it’s the 50th anniversary of the moon landing. I even remember where I was! I was at music camp at West Virginia University, in Morgantown WV, where I had the dubious honor of being last chair, third clarinet, 3 years running! Who needs to practice when you’re last chair? Bonus!
But I digress…Houston! We have a problem!
Let’s celebrate some bears in space!
To the moon, Alice!
For a different sort of space to be lost in…
What’s that stuff getting all over my paws? Oh…it’s frosting!
THIS is your brain on pandas. Any questions?
#6 is getting ready to make his move!
Did we mention it’s almost time for…Mei Watch?
we are still hoping for a panda cub trifecta
will the pitter patter of little paws soon follow?
To go, where no bear has gone before…

Thanks to all who supported the Mr. Wu Pin project! Production is underway, and hopefully we will have them in out paws by the end of August! Stay tuned if you missed our Kickstarter, but still want some goodies! Once we have them in paw, (and we’ve sent them out to our Kickstarter supporters) we’ll let you know how you can get them too!
This is it! The last day of Mr. Wu’s Pin Project! You still have a few hours to head over to Kickstarterto pledge on our latest project! Huzzah! To inspire you to support our latest project, I thought I’d publish and additional day of ‘toons, celebrating…you guessed it…
All the kerfuffle over the census form (“WHY WON’T THE SUPREME COURT LET ME DO WHAT I WANT? THAT’S WHAT I PICKED THEM FOR!!!!”) reminded me of this ‘toon from the last Panda Census:
Do we have to count panda adoption fees?
Pinky’s attempt to recruit Six and Sebben as her new minions reminded me of her previous collusion with small pandas….you could ALMOST have sympathy for the difficulty the WH has to find staff that doesn’t crime….
Triple Trouble indeed!
What are Pinky and her minions getting up to?
Minion security: you can’t be too careful.
Maybe you shouldn’t plug that many things into an extension cord, Pinky.
did someone turn out the lights?
And Zoonooz is on the job!
Pinky is so good at “Evade the Question”, that she is obviously a natural politician!
Cause and effects are very complicated concepts for baby pandas, don’t you think?

Don’t forget! We have 3 more days on our Kickstarter campaign!
We are barely halfway through 2019 and we’ve had the first drop out from the Democratic field. (Not Pinky! Or Bob) While some might think that there are far too many people running for the Democratic nomination, I think the large field is a good thing. I think it helps each of us to clarify what the most important things are to us, as each candidate articulates what they want for this country of ours.
Each of the candidates has something to offer. Their focuses are different, even with a certain amount of overlap. I believe that by encouraging all to participate, we, the people, get to think about what are the issues that are important to us. And frankly, many of their policy ideas are needed now. Eric Swalwell was the first to leave the race, but his central issue, dealing with the over abundance of guns in our country and lack of sensible regulations, is an important one.
I hope as each of these candidates who fail to gain traction step aside, they will leave these important issues for the remaining candidates to pick up and add to the things they are passionate about. One thing is certain. This needs to be the final days of 45’s reign of contemptuous lawlessness.
But that’s enough of being serious! Bring on the pandas!
get out of the way! There is a Pinky coming through!
And don’t forget! only one more week for our Kickstarter campaign! Did we mention our fabulous Stretch Goal reward? You know you want this!
I really do hope that all the non-Mittens-sycophants stay home from the “president’s” taxpayer and high donor funded rally today. I hope that the photos show a totally empty DC outside of his VIP area. As Karl, the waiter in Casablanca, said when Rick asked where he was seating the Nazis, he replied, “I gave them the best table, knowing they would take it anyway.”
And so HWMNBN declares that “no one ever celebrated the 4th of July before I became “president”.” And cordoned off the best viewing spot for the fireworks for a VIP area for his supporters….and do you suppose he will turn this into a political rally for himself and bashing of the Democratic candidates?
So, let’s have some pandas before I start weeping in despair. Is our independence near? Who knows?
And while you are ignoring all the shenanigans taking place in DC, and you’ve eaten all the backyard cookout goodies you can stand, head over to Put a Panda on it 3.0: The Mr Wu Pinsand sign up! You’ll be glad you did!
So… when I work on my ‘toons, I pretty much schedule them in the order that I drew them, and if there is a time sensitive subject matter (like the ‘toon I’m going to run on Thursday), I try to draw them in that order. in my obsessive compulsive way, I even write the date and day on the page in my sketchbook where I write the ‘toons.
But this ‘toon cracks me up so much that I couldn’t wait for the whole two and a half weeks till its turn to run came up in the ‘toon schedule.
Because, when it comes to fierce animals, you don’t mess with grizzly bears!
Don’t (*snorf*) look like food!
And then there was the news that HWMNBN was going to get his way in regard to tanks in his military dictator parade. Oh….um…did I say that outloud?
Do we HAVE to go?
Don’t forget to go check out the Mr. Wu Pin Kickstarter! I have a really great stretch goal that I’m just dying to tell you about!!!
Wait till the absolute last minute to start actually setting up your project

My Bad! But Hey! We’re LIVE!!!!!
Mr. Wu IS a pivotal panda in the rise of panda satire! Better late than nebber!
I think we are almost ready to launch our new Kickstarter Pin Project, featuring, the one, the only, the irresistible Real Wu Self! At noon today PDT, we are planning to be ready to launch. Despite the fact that I am a bit behind on this, due to several circumstances beyond my control, and a rather overwhelming need to take naps the last couple weeks, I am approaching readiness for this project!
Due to my lackadaisical attitude that “Oh, I’ve done lots of projects and they always confirmed my set up really quickly” I still don’t have all the clearances I need to go ahead and launch Wu’s project tomorrow. I’m hoping that approvals will magically take place over night and I will still be able to launch at my scheduled planned time of Noon, Thursday June 27, but if I can’t, then I will keep you posted! For those who supported the last 2 projects, I can send out messages via Kickstarter, and for the rest of you, I’ll post an update here, Twidder, and Fezbook. Sigh…that’ll learn me!
Let’s see what Mr. Wu himself has to say about this!
Mr. Wu IS a pivotal panda in the rise of panda satire!
Be the bear!
