Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for June 20, 2014
Goat: How's your day going, Pig? Pig: Big problems, Goat. My box of 100 comic books got ruined by a leak in our basement. Goat: Oh, no. Even your favorite Richie Rich one? Pig: No. That was the only one I was reading at the time. Goat: So that one's not ruined? Pig: I got 99 problems, but Richie Rich ain't one. Goat: Not one person over 50 is gonna get that. Pastis: And will anyone under 50 know who Richie Rich is? Rat: Oh, great. That strip appeals to no one.
OK, for the folks under 50, “Richie Rich” is a comic about a “poor little rich boy” who has so much money it’s utterly ridiculous.Now, it’s your turn to explain the rest of it for us folks over 50, thanks.
