Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for December 24, 2015
Zebra: Merry Christmas, Rat! Here's your gift. Rat: Thanks. Zebra: Gee, not to make this awkward, but I thought you said this was a gift EXCHANGE. Rat: It is. I go to the store and exchange your gift for something better. Zebra: You wouldn't. Rat: Well, not if you bought better gifts.

I hope Zebra did not include a gift receipt.

Maybe they could exchange Rat for a piece of lint.

Unless it cost someone their life savings there’s nothing anyone in that circle could give Rat that he wouldn’t exchange. I take that back, they could give him a year’s supply of bear (which for Rat would mean 365 years supply as he could finish a year’s supply in a day) and one of those tacky beer hats.

Zeeba Neighba actually thought Rat would “exchange” a present to him?! I worry that he’s becoming susceptible to a croc deception if he is so naive about Rat!

How about I invite Rat to Christmas dinner for my snake?

Ah, but I like to think that Zeba would simply respond with, " Merry Christmas!" .

this year i found gift tags at Target that said “Don’t worry I kept the receipt” and “Don’t panic you can always exchange” I thought they were hilarious – my wife didn’t seemed amused. with 2 daughters and 5 grand kids I think those tags are very much appropriate!!!! lol
