    It’s a little odd for Goat to be encouraging Pig to be positive when he’s working on a martini.

    Pig – life doesn’t look good in the negative. Listen to Rover.

    Now, drink this apple martini and today may feel better.

    Life is a bowl of scorpions, and then you die!

    If you can wrangle anything better than that then you are in the lucky zone!

    Always look on the bright side of life

    (do do, do do do do do do)

    Always look on the bright side of life

    (do do, do do do do do do)

    Life’s a piece of XXit,

    When you look at it

    Life’s a laugh and death’s a joke, it’s true

    You’ll see it’s all a show

    Keep ‘em laughin’ as you go

    Just remember that the last laugh is on you

    I was feeling sad and miserable, and nothing was going well, when a voice from the heavens said “cheer up, things could be worse”.

    So I cheered up, and sure enough, things got worse.

    I remember the good old days when Pastis use to try to make us happy instead of depressed. It time for PBS to go the route of Peanuts – the artist dies and all the old funny strips get endlessly recycled.

    All the bars are closed where I live. So I guess Pig ain’t got it so bad.

    A cocktail. Goat’s got the right idea about positive reinforcement.

    It’s really GOOD not to be positive right now.

    A cousin sent me this one: Half of us are going to come out of this quarantine as amazing cooks. The other half will come out with a drinking problem.

    Life is what we choose it to be. As always Goat is right. When you think of all of the positives, your life will get better. #choosehappy

    Here’s a little song I wrote

    You might want to sing it note for note

    Don’t worry, be happy

    In every life we have some trouble

    When you worry you make it double

    Don’t worry, be happy

    Don’t worry, be happy now

    - Bobby McFerrin

    This really is a sorry excuse for a pandemic. I was promised the Zombie Apocalypse and all I got was governmental recriminations, toilet paper shortages and binge watching Tiger King.

    Ha! I’ve been using that joke for years, though my response is usually “I’m positive we’re doomed”

    Sorry if this is a repeat; I didn’t go through all the previous comments. Anyway, I believe that this was courtesy of The Three Stooges:

    “Only a fool is positive!”

    “Are you sure?”

    “I’m positive!”
