    Who says money can’t buy happiness? Bacon is $5.99 per pound.

    Forget the cars, yacht and house. If he wants to be happy, he should buy a lifetime supply of very good wine.

    What can you do with a fleet of cars that you can’t do with one?

    The bigger the house, the bigger the sense of loneliness and isolation.

    Money may not buy happiness, but it can make misery a lot more comfortable.

    Does this pose as some type of profundity for those of us without? You know, as we wait for for the dribble downs that never come, we should make merry with our lot in life? while the real wealth, via the Great Tax Heist, flees Ft. Knox headed for places unknown?

    Actually, long before that, he ran out of money and had to declare bankruptcy because many lottery winners mistake a lot of money for infinite money. No, it can’t make you happy, but it can pay down your debts and help you give more to the poor. I suspect that might contribute to happiness.

    With enough money you can build your own planet and then buy everything on it. But seriously, if he doesn’t know what will make him happy, why does he assume he can buy it? Know thyself.

    Physical happiness is doomed to be temporary. Spiritual happiness can be eternal. Besides, I’m allergic to cheese.

    I’m surprised Pastis didn’t make this an Angry Bob strip. Bob could have died by being crushed under a pile of money.

    The global average “happiness income” is around $161,000/€134,581/£118,938/yr. for 13 countries surveyed. I’d donate 1/3 of it to charities, & and have fun budgeting the rest in day-to-day living.

    Often in the past when you have had rat the author starring, the book text has been hard to read. It looks like you put real thought into making it more accessible for those of us with damaged eyes.

    The thing is, he was jumping up and down and saying “yay!” So he probably was happy, even if it was only for a few seconds.
