    I can just imagine the pillow talk::“Put it in… take it out… put it in… shake it all about…”

    Even Bob (not just Rat, Goat, Zebra and at times Pig and the crocodiles) is out to get Stephan for his bad punchlines.

    What if the Hokey Pokey is what it is all about?

    I use to be addicted to the hockey pokey but I turned myself around.

    To some people, facts are biased.

    Ahem. Good gentles, I’m afraid that liberal might not mean what you think it means. (Honestly, everyone outside of the US must be either crying or ltaoing at reading that mainstream American papers could possibly sound like Pravda. Unless you think this is Prada, of course.)

    Not much of a Pearls today, but it does make me notice something. Pig is always calling people “Neighbor Bob”, “Neighbor Jim” (not to be confused with Jim Nabors), etc., but none of them reciprocate by calling him “Neighbor Pig”. Just saying.One of my neighbors does have a pet pig. Maybe I’ll start calling it “Neighbor”.

    Neighbor Bob! Correct grammar would be “she and the magician are having an affair”.

    Newspapers have a tough road. Newspapers used to exist on mostly wire service articles, supplemented with local news and opinions. Now subscriptions are falling as people get their news online, and the wire service news reprinted in the paper is all “old news”. Now readers can even get the comics online, so that’s yet another reason the paper is unnecessary. With falling revenues, to save on expenses, many cut back on the local reporting, but not the guys at the top, and those are the ones responsible for the local opinions. If many local papers seem to have shifted from mostly news towards more opinion, it’s because, unintentionally, they have.

    This is not one of his better puns. Decent, but won’t make the Hall of Fame.

    I just like reading/hearing both sides of an argument. That’s what I liked about “The Week” before it got too expensive for me and still like about The McLaughlin Group and the panel on FOX News Sunday…it’s 2-on-2. When I was a radio newscaster, I tried to make sure both sides of an argument in a story were represented, via actuality or text. You owe it to your listeners to be even-handed.

    I stopped reading my daily paper (Philadelphia Inquirer) because they went from being objective to being a right-wing rag. That, and their comics page is terrible.

    Bad grammar was not necessary for the joke! (“her” should be “she”.)

    my baby loves the hanky-panky…i find there to still be a fair amount of rational liberal left in the philly inky, admittedly the comics page is not what it once was, but i still like it

    someday soon, when everyone stops bothering with the paper, no more exposes of what the government, the cops, etc. are up to, no one to protect us from corruption. nothing to do but swallow predigested pap from the tv, a lot right wing, or what’s on the net, wildly inaccurate, wildly biased in one direction or another. oh boy.can’t wait

    By the way, Stephen’s cyclist, Jef, tried his hand at this type of humor yesterday:

    Stephan Pastis, you and Tony Rubino are on my list for “The Top Ten Most Worst Comic Strips To Be Criticized By a Poster”! One for the sorriest work of art (Tony) and the other for a punch line that’s not even worth a chuckle! (Parstis) It’s like trying to strain a fart!

    I don’t know about the rest of you, but as Charlie Brown says…“I can’t stand it. I just can’t stand it.”In more ways than one!

    I stopped watching Faux’ Sunday show when I realized that it was two or three hard-right conservatives against Mara Lyason from PBS, basically a moderate, and fake liberal Juan Williams. Who had to leave PBS and settle in where he was comfortable…Faux.

    people no longer bother with facts. They build their lives around opinions and if they read anything that might change their mind, they can’t believe it because that’s not who they are.
