    PackratJohn….Yeah, I was going to say they need to find a garage sale, so they can buy someplace to keep their farmers.

    Every time I pass a sign that says “Yard Sale”, I want to walk up and say “I’d like a yard of this, and a couple of yards of that”.

    By the way, speaking of movies (as we were over the last few days), I always watch the credits. Some of them are well worth it, like the end credits to Mel Brooks movie: “To Be Or Not To Be”.

    I would think that a farmers market sells produce. But most of them just sell prepared food and other stuff.

    Rat and Goat are both in full character, while Pig is On the Fringe, being Pig as only he can. And, while I sympathize with Goat (hear me roar, Cartoon-Boy!), I have to admit that Rat’s logic is impeccable….

    I never did understand the SLOW CHILDREN sign on the street in front of my house when I was growing up.

    It’s saying cars need to be slow, so they don’t hit children.

    I only buy Amish at the farmer’s market… they never complain about the unheated doghouse I stick them in.

    When we see a YARD SALE sign, we immediately start discussing where we could put that yard if we could afford it.

    SLOW CHILDREN must embarrass those, poor, slow children.

    I do get the joke and I do find it funny, but it does illustrate urban bias and ignorance. Very few farmers wear straw hat and bib overalls. And close to half of all farmers are women.

    Watch those apostrophes. If you want to buy fresh vegetables, go to a farmer’s market.

    Alpha omega… Not sure what that’s supposed to mean…But you and Alberta guy do know this is a comic strip, right? American farmers don’t all wear bib overalls… Prisoners don’t wear black and white striped pajamas.Lady animals don’t always wear bows in their hair… or towering wigs like Larry’s wife, Patty.

    But all those conventions are old fashioned comic strip character identifiers, not meant to portray any sort of reality… designed to provoke a chuckle, not social analysis… In fact, Pastis lives in the same N CA city I do, in a very agricultural area… surrounded by dairies, vineyards, and small farms and ranches.You can find me standing at a farmer’s market one night a week in summer, helping sell fresh vegetables. We have tons of real, working farmers …

    I suppose that’s why we can sell them off like that.

    If they sell shoes at a shoe store, and toys at a toy store, what exactly do they sell at a Christian store?

    If this is a veiled criticism that Lynda Hopkins is bought and paid for by development interests, you’re much more sophisticated than I thought…
