Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for November 08, 2013
Goat: Hey, Pig. Why are you all dressed up? Pig: I'm trying to impress my girlfriend Pigita with how cultured I can be. I'm even taking her to a classical musical performance. Goat: How wonderful. Who's performing? Pig: Yo mama. Goat: Yo-yo ma. Pig: Close enough.

Pig looks like the Monopoly man.:Pig, go directly to the doghouse. Do not pass first base. Do not get any.

At least Rat’s not in this strip, so that’s a plus.

Pennybags, not Moneybags.

Don’t bother, Pig. Pigita is not worth it. Yo-Yo Ma, on the other hand, is a great cellist. So maybe just go and listen to the concert, alone!

The last person I can think of who regularly wore a monocle was Werner Klemperer. And he’s been dead for 13 years.

It is possible that Goat’s mother may be a classical musician.

If Pig got the tickets from Rat, he was probably right to begin with!

How do you pronounce Pigita? Pig-EAT-a?.Since crocs can’t seem to catch the Zeebah-Zeebah-Eata (or even penguins trapped in their freezer), why not a Pig-EAT-a?.

Pig actually is learning. A while back he thought Goat was mocking him when he told Pig Yo-Yo Ma’s name

Pig? Cultured? He thinks opera is a former talk-show hostess!

Yo-yo Ma is awesome!

Yo-Yo Ma is actually part of a group called The Goat Rodeo Sessions . . . so maybe honest confusion on Pig’s part?

Congrats to “Stefan, the Rat” being featured in today’s Mutts’ Shelter Stories.

No, really. Goat’s mother plays the violin.

Bow ties are cool, Pig.

I think he took one too many muscle relaxers or something… Look at those eyes! One is dialated to a pin point the other is huge! Looks like he’s channeling Bill The Cat there!

when Yoyo Ma appeared on the muppet show, they called him yo mama

Pig looks sweet!
I love Classical Music. Hearing the string instruments always relaxes me.

Friday’s In the Bleachers mentions Pastis in its joke. Made me laugh.

Chris Eubank & Patrick Moore still wear monocles.

I think Big Nate did a similar joke. Nate declares he will drop a Yo Mama joke on the first person who walks around a corner, but when Chester comes out he decides to drop a “Yo-Yo Ma” instead.
