Fasten your seat belts! There may be turbulence!

I hope Bubba doesn’t decide to invest in Pinky’s new airline endeavor.

Protect the Banky Pig!!!!

So…where did you leave Banky Pig?

And speaking of Bridgegate…

Oh! Were we? There was recent news about the scandal with the folks over in New Jersey (The Sopranos State!) and how maybe somebody closed a bunch of lanes of the Fort Lee Bridge back in 2013. They basically (successfully, although not necessarily truthfully) pinned the deed on one of the governor’s trusted staffers (a woman, surprise, surprise) and of course, she is going down for the deed, although she’s still fighting. I say good for her.

The original news story inspired this series of ‘toons, starring young Pinky and the Meihems! Enjoy!

Princess Pinky Bao Bao…what have you done now?

Time to call in …Inspector panda!

Inspector Panda is on the job!

“Hello, Bai Yun? this is Lun Lun…about that detective you suggested…”

…of course Boo-mints are pretty good too.

Will the twins get a merit badge for their road trip? will Lun Lun fess up to where the girls are? will Inspector Panda get a clue, or at least more twitter followers. Stay tuned!

Oh, Pinky…what have you done?

Howdy, Mr Kitty, kindly tell us where a tired old cowpoke can get a boo beer and a cuppycake.

The end!

Panda on!

Peace, or Something Like It

The news continues to be overly news-y, if you want my opinion, and even if you don’t! To cheer you up, this story was making the rounds a little while ago: The Cheeto in Chief was claiming that he had been nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize. Um…there seems to be some information that that might not exactly be the case.

Of course, where Cheeto goes, Mittens is sure to follow.

Who could have done this????

Putting the “I” in Impeachment!

Sunday Funday(?????)

With all the news in the news, it’s hard to feel like having fun, but that is what we must do if we are to survive the current madness of “King” Donald. Apparently, He just found out that 4th of July is a holiday, and he “came up with” a great idea for the day.

I hope he doesn’t make attendance mandatory.

Do we HAVE to go?

Meanwhile, out in California…

Yun Zi leaves for China

There’s no place like home…

Leaving the nest is never easy.

mr wu speaks out.

Is this a personality or what?

Don’t try this at home….

Don’t you just wish Fezbook would quit changing things?

Don’t Touch My Stuff! (this means you, Gail.)

Meanwhile, in Kickstarter land, I’ve ordered pins and patches and will get the backer surveys out next week! Huzzah! I bet Pinky will be so happy when Bubba and Ping arrive!

Stay safe and make sure you don’t have a humor deficit!

One last post from The Animal Justice League

Somehow I got out of sync with my ‘toons, and left the tail end of this story (that was a pun, get it? Tail end?) hanging while we wrapped up the second Panda Pin project! We’ll be doing a third one this summer, to celebrate that cubby among cubbies, the one true Wu Self!

But first, I have a bunch of organizing to do, along with the making of lists, the ordering of pins, and the gathering of information. If you missed the Bubba and Ping Ping Pin projects, hold on to your cuppycakes. after I get all the Kickstarter pins sent out, I can field requests from here or you can wait till the next project to catch up, sometime around late June.

Thanks again to all who participated!

Meanwhile, don’t turn your back on those lions!

If you go out in the woods today, you’re in for a big surprise!

More from the Animal Justice League!

Sometimes the news does not disappoint.

Also, did you know elephants make 300 pounds of poo a day? *True fact learned at Pan Diego Zoo this weekend*

Look who’s here!

Only a couple more days till the end of our Kickstarter project! Now’s the time to make sure you are getting what you want or sign up if you haven’t already!

You knew we were going to do a ‘toon about this, didn’t you?

I have to thank all my faithful readers, who are always on the lookout for actual news stories that might make for good ‘toon inspiration! You all did yourselves proud this time, by making sure that the news story about a rhino poacher who was killed by an elephant, was then eaten by lions. Several of you brought this story to my attention, and although it seemed outlandish, (I mean, who could make this stuff up?) a little investigating on multiple sources showed that this indeed had happened!

It was even mentioned by Trevor Noah on The Daily Show!

Way to co-operate, guys! Well done!

One might hope that people would know better…

PS: Don’t forget! Our Kickstarter is still gong on! I’ve recently added a new reward, and rewritten the project home page to make it (hopefully) less confusing. Seriously, every time I do this, in some ways it’s like the first time! :-} Go Check it out! Do it now!

3″ embroidered patch with Bubba and his friends! only an additional $12! Don’t you want this?

Free Speech or something like it…

When I listen to the things that come out of 45’s mouth (which I do as rarely as possible) I start to think that maybe this whole free speech thing is overrated. Then I smack my self on the head, and remind myself that free speech lets me express my honest displeasure with the powers that be, without the risk of getting thrown in prison for it.

But the operating principle of this “administration” seems to be, the speech of some gets to be freer than the speech of others.

I’m not sure how much more of this I can take.

Join the Moooooovement!

You knew that Mehitabel would have to interview Devin Nune’s Cow, didn’t you? Of course you did! We at the Institute for Contemporary Panda Satire never miss a chance to join what ever punny moooovement is happening out on the inter webs, and this one is just so much fun! If you hang out on Twidder, do head over to @DevinCow and give a follow! They are trying to reach a million followers, just to annoy Devin Nunes, and who can fault them for that?

I mean, if we didn’t have Devin to heckle, I’d have to spend all my time heckling Howard Schultz!

Who doesn’t love a good bovine bon mot?

Moove over! You’re crowding me!

For those (panda) history buffs among you, you should know that this weeks marks the 47th anniversary of the Nixon Pandas arrival in Washington DC. I count myself among those who saw these labeled bears in person (bearson?) in the late ’80’s, a few years before the passing of Ling Ling.

As such, it is the custom here at the Panda Chronicles to replay the cartoon I wrote, commemorating the 40th anniversary of their arrival. Enjoy!

PS: you still have time to visit the Bubba Pin Kickstarter project, Don’t Call Mee Boo Boo! Don’t be the only panda fan without Bubba, Pinky, and Ping Ping’s commemorative pins!

More Mr. Wu for You! WooHoo!

If this was Wednesday, it could be Mr. Wu Wednesday again. (Remember those?) But for now, we continue with our trip down memory lane, revisiting Mr. Wu’s greatest hits. The San Diego Zoo posted a compilation video of his first 12 or so well-baby-panda exams, which had inspired this ‘toon:

Everybody say SQUEEEEEEEE!

Dose gurls just wanted to has dere way wif wu!

But no sooner does Mr. Wu get out of mom jail after the airplane affair….(see last Sunday’s Wu toons!)

Fanmail from some Flounder?

This was the first story I did that got people upset. As if I would let anything REALLY bad happen to the Wu Self!

Voices in the night, a ladder, a letter…adios…

“Are we there, yet?”

This is a case for…Inspector Panda!

Never, never get in a car with the Panda Kindergarten!

Mysteriouser and mysteriouser!

This must be the place!

Tune (‘toon?) in next Sunday for the next installment of wu’s exciting story!

 

By the way, we are doing great over at our Bubba Pin Kickstarter project! If you haven’t been checking in, both the Ping Ping Pin (say that fast three times) and the Bubba and his Friends patch are now both available.

3″ embroidered patch with Bubba and his friends! only an additional $12!

Panda On!
