    Rat has moved stage-right (viewer’s left) and up unto the table, past Pig. That’s why only Pig’s cup and not Rat’s is still in view in panel 3. And sweet, gullible Pig endorses his housemate’s boastful claim once again! Will Piggy ever wise up?

    Well, considering that a few years ago, there was a Pearls arc with crockydile superheroes who cleared printer jams or stapled papers together…

    I think “Clear-The-Room Boy” has a shot.

    Or maybe he could call himself “Space Rat” cos he clears a space.

    BMonk … from yesterday…YES!

    Good thinking….and good timing.

    I’d been regretting not posting that LGD couldn’t yell “Fore”…. because with Dinky in that position he’d have to yell “Aft!”

    But you’re right … if he had another three ducklings, he could still yell “Fore!”

    In the last panel, Rat is holding up his arms; also, Goat is leaving the room and Pig is holding his nose. Maybe rat’s “presence” is simply a lack of bathing.

    Too bad that crocs don’t develop a taste for rats instead of zebras. Oh, right, it doesn’t matter – they never kill and eat them anyway. So how come we never see them starve to death?
