Glad to hear it managed to arrive without being intercepted by pandas.

Talking of which. How comes there is no panda in the picture above?

Re: JH

Sadly most people do not recognise the threat that pandas represent. I hope one day to amend this issue, but this cartoon was not the place to do it.

But someone has to warn the people! Think about all the harm an unnoticed bamboo-munching no-goodnik could do.
You sir have an obligation to society! And we all remember the words uttered by spiderman: "With great power comes great responsibility!"

Sincerely, JH

zomg... I saved and forwarded to my dad who is a pilot - he'll love this! He hates flying commercially, every time he does he gets stopped and strip-searched due to schrapnel from Vietnam. You should see the treatment, it is heinous. Even moreso since he's Greek (foreign sounding last name, yes, they actually said that) and "swarthy" people are morons.

I had no idea what Hoosier meant until it was explained to me. And I enjoyed reading all the possible explanations for where the name came from

My rule is: if I draw noses in as many different ways as possible at least one of them must be good. R-right?
