The Story of How Minch McTurtle Got His Second Head

It is most unfair of the Republicans to offer arguments so absurd, that it becomes hard to make fun of them.

This says it all…

This makes perfect sense to me!

Try to panda on!

New S**T has come to light!!!

I’m sure everyone one has a favorite movie, that they have found relevant quotes for many situations in life. I have several, including Casablanca and The Wizard of Oz, but the one that has the most useful quotes in MANY situations for me, is The Big Liebowski. I didn’t see this movie when it originally came out, but since discovering it, I watch it regularly (It’s one of a handful of movies I own discs of) and Mr. Badger and I quote it almost constantly.

Last week when Rachel Maddow was interviewing Live Parnas, I kept yelling at my iPand, “New s**t has come to light!!!!!” And wouldn’t ya know, when I was listening to The Daily Beans today, they played the audio clip from the movie of Jeff Bridges (aka the Dude) saying that very line! So there! It IS the perfect line for these perilous times!

It was as if that line had been written for this very point in history…

Settle your fur down, Bob!

The Year in Review Part 3

Two notes on things other than the year in review posts:

First, I was alerted to an excellent newsletter by Heather Cox Richardson, writing about the legal  and political issues of the day, in a very readable, clear manner. (In other words, if I can understand what the hell she’s talking about, pretty much anyone can.) I highly recommend subscribing to her news letter. If nothing else, maybe it will keep me out of the Twidder trenches so I can get some work done. We’re in for a wild ride, panda fans! Here’s to hoping we all survive it!

Second, my Tiny Panda Kickstarter is going swimmingly! It ends this Friday at 5 PM PST, so if you wee thinking about getting a tiny panda (or two) of your own, this is the week. There are still several panda rewards available, and should you want more than one there is both a two panda reward, or you can add another panda to the reward selected. Just message me here via the Contact Us form, or the Kickstarter message system.

Now! On with the Year in Review for July, August, and September!

Frank and Mikey return with excellent advice for hikers!

Don’t (*snorf*) look like food!

Another reminder of why “president” Mittens must not only be impeached, but also removed from office.

*snorf*

Pinky and her new minions get down to serious business

On to August… This seems topical!

Made by the same highly scientific company as the Cute-o-Meter!

Don’t get mad. Get even.

Even elephants are tired of the GOP’s shenanigans!

 

September! The back to school month!

It does not pay to be late! You don’t want to flunk cake again, do you, Boo Boo?

Another reminder of why the Senate needs to vote to remove…

Mittens: a disgrace to cat-hood

bears will be bears!

See ya next week with some new ‘toons and the wrap up of our Hold Me Closer Tiny Panda Kiscktarter!

Panda On!
Bob get-your-tiny-pandas-here T Panda

These ‘toons previously appeared on The Panda Chronicles in July/August/September of 2019

Will Democracy Collapse?

Geez…new s**t has come to light!!! Can you believe all the information that is hitting the ether? Thank goodness I have so many little pandas to felt! (you are not too late! Check it out HERE!)

Poor Bob is a bit stressed out though! Maybe he needs to take up needle felting too! Oh…wait…I am Bob. Bob is me. Where is Mehitabel? In Memorium: Mehitabel- 1996-2017

Sorry I’m “late”

Meanwhile, Mehitabel lives on in The Panda Chronicles

Reality is scary!!!

Beeeeeeeee!

The Year in Review Part 2

Before we dive in to our Year in Review encore presentation, can I just say OH MY FRIGGING GOD!!!! The tiny panda (Hold me closer tiny panda) Kickstarter reached its goal amount 13 minutes after launching. I am astounded with gratitude for this response. It also was listed as a Kickstarter Project We Love most of the day on Friday. Needless (or needle-less) to say, I have a lot of felting to do over the coming months. If you are afraid you missed your favorite panda, check back at the project, because I added some more reward categories!

Thank you again, from deep within my heart. I can’t wait to get these pandas to you! (After I make them of course!) This has the added benefit of getting to visit the Abundant Earth Fiber store again, which may now be called my happy place!

But now, on with the Year in Review for April, May, and June (Wherein we are reminded of why we need emotional support pandas!)

it was a total coincidence that Babette’s ‘toon should run today.

Moove over! You’re crowding me!

Look who’s here!

On to May!

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

Irony is dead:

Who could have done this????

Did I just see what I thought I saw?

June is in ‘toon…

Bwahahahaha!

Frank and Mikey make another return appearance!

So, Mikey…how was the Grand Ol’ Opry?

And let’s not forget Six and Sebben!

Will these two ever get along?

Well, that’s it for today’s wrap up! See ya real soon!

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

The Year in Review Part One

I did warn you I was going to do this. It will be instructive (not to mention profoundly depressing) to look back both here in panda satire, as well as in the real world (or the reality world…whatebber!) and see where we started 2019!

So in January…

Look out Bubba! Pinky is trying to get her paws on Banky Pig!

But Bubba had a plan!

That Ping Ping is a clever liddle bear, isn’t he?

Meanwhile, a vision of that which was to come…

Mittens did WHAT??????!!!!????

On To February!

The Government shutdown, orchestrated by HWMNBN started in December, and still continued into February, heedless of putting 100’s of 1,000’s of people out of work. Or was it millions?

Dis. Will Not. STAND!!!!!

I see trouble in my crystal ball…

Even Nancy Pelosi listened enthusiastically!

But Time Waits for no Panda…onto March!

March brought us the presidential candidacy floating of yet another unqualified billionaire, this time a purveyor of double-half-caff-frappacino-with-skim-whippy-cream-and-sprinkles, claiming that the obvious disdain for his proposed presidential run, was a sure sign that the people wanted him to do it. Fortunately, he fizzled out (bad back, my behind!) and he has receded to the obscurity he deserves.

“Hey! I’m still back here!”

The people have spoken!

And then there was the return of everyone’s favorite grizzlies…Frank and Mikey!

“We are NEVER going to get our security deposit back!!!”

If you enjoyed our first Year in Review installment, you can search the archives in the sidebar and read the full stories that we have highlighted here! And while your in the sidebar, you can also look at what we have to offer at Redbubble in our Buy Stuff With Pandas feature!

Panda as if your life depended on it!

Well, here we are again!

Oh my! A new Year is upon us. I think I saw somewhere that this year is the Chinese Year of the Rat. I need to double check this, because there could be a lot of rats deserting the sinking ship of the You Know Who (p)residency!

But meanwhile, let’s join Bob and Mehitabel as we welcome in the new year!

It’s 2020!  What could POSSIBLY go wrong????

Pinky really needs to quit doing that.

Buckle up, buttercup!
Bob T Panda

And a Pinky in a Hemlock Tree!

I was going to give you all a break this year, and not re-run The Twelve Days of Crispmoss, but by popular demand (okay, one person) we return with this holiday classic!!!

Everyone sing along!

feel free to sing along.

I can’t hear anyone singing…..

I swear, I had nothing to do with Pinky’s let night sit in.

four pandas sneaking…

…and a Pinky in a Hemlock tree!

FIIIIIVE cuppycakes!

F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!

No WONDER I didn’t get any presents!

F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!

OOOOO! Pinky is a star!

F-F-F-FI-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-I-VE Cuppycaaaaaaakes!

Day 31 ~ 31 Days of Pandas

Oh my goodness! It’s Day 31!!!! It’s New year’s Eve in my time zone. for some of you, it’s already next year! What ever time zone you are in, take a deep breath, sleep in, if you can, and think about how you are going to combat authoritarianism this year!

I’m going to do it by speaking out here, and in the real world, and keep drawing my ‘toons that speak my truth!

Keep being the bear!

WE need to do better in 2020! What can possibly go wrong?

Panda on!
Bob T Panda

Have the Happiest New Year that you can!

Day 30 ~ 31 Days of Pandas!

It’s Day 30 of 31 Days of Pandas! Thank you for joining me for this month-long Pandapalooza! It is always fun dipping into the archives to see what floats to the surface!

We are looking at a very stressful year ahead. HWMNBN is not going to go quietly into the night like Nixon did. He is going to go kicking and screaming and saying UNFAIR WITCH HUNT all the way. We need to be very brave and stand up for the Constitution and for Democracy. We need all the pandas and frosting that we can get!

To that end, let me leave you with some of my all time favorite ‘toons from over the years!

2011

Ever wondered where all these pandas came from?

2012

The panda kindergaten knows where you live.

2013

An explorer’s work is never done.

2014

deleted footage from press conference

Pinky answers difficult questions from the press in her own way.

2015

Thanks a lot, Leslie. I think you gave Pinky this idea.

2016

Oh those red pandas! They are such characters!

2017

international woman's day

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

2018

Well *bleep* and take your *bleep* and stick it *bleep*!!!!

2019- We introduced Frank and Mikey late in 2018 (when they allegedly ate Supreme Court nominee Bart Kravenclaw) and I think these (non-panda) bears are here to stay!

Ruh Roh….

I hope you enjoyed this look back at panda satire through the years since we started this blog! Tune in tomorrow for the 31st day of 31 Days of Pandas, and all next month as we do our Year in Review on Sundays!
