    No Pig, but they might pear you up with someone nicer than Pigita.

    You know, this is the first time I’ve actually seen a date depicted in a comic in conjunction with the joke. I still have yet to see the same fruit in real life.

    Actually, looks like Pig got THREE dates! Wow! Now if he could just unload that vile Pigita, all would well in Pig’s little world!

    Don’t give a fig for his opinion, Pig!! Orange you glad you finally got that date? The fruit of your labour will be sweet indeed!

    Pig, if you want a new sweetie, you could find a real peach at the produce market.

    No raisin to look any farther.

    How about a nice prune? She’s not such a hot tomato, but underneath she’s a plum, with a grape personality.

    Corny as it sounds, she’ll soon be the apple of your eye.

    At least she beets your currant girlfriend, who doesn’t carrot all about you.

    OK OK!! I’ll stop!I heard those raspberries!

    This reminds me of the “fruit buddies” strips of a few years ago.

    Looks like we’ll probably have to wait until at least Monday to find out if Zebra’s wall and Melvin are still standing.

    Pig, you’re a real cool cucumber, but I hope you didn’t get yourself a lemon.

    WOW!! Pig’s got himself a threesome!

    He must have lots of cabbage to keep them around. If not, he will soon be very *melon*choly.

    I dated a cashier that I met grocery shopping. When she met my friends, one of my friends asked where did I find her. I said the grocery store.His response – :Which aisle?" (In front of her)

    The answer to your question Pig - is, yes. Sorry nobody else said. They were obviously too busy punishing you. . ..

    I hope there’s a follow-up to this strip referencing the “bad dates” from Raiders Of The Lost Ark…

    I live in Indio, CA – Date capital of the United States. Our Riverside County Fair is also the National Date Festival. My out of town friends never understand why we have a festival for singles….
