Thousands? Does Stephan really believe that many people read his script?
My tongue so hardworking he bearly got time to rest.
In an episode of the 1960s “Batman” series, Batman talks to Robin about the importance of understanding other languages: “One should always keep abreast of foreign tongues.”
I love those sneaky little gags.
I never loved the feeling of my tongue more than when I got my braces removed.
Also don’t think of elephants or the theme from Gilligan’s Island
me reading this at night
This was done before in Peanuts.
Sorry, but I can’t catch the meaning.
It’s tongue in cheek.
I only pay attention to my tongue when there’s chocolate on it.
Gave up reading out loud in the second grade.
Now my tongue can enjoy an ice cream cone while scanning the comics.
Reminds me of the old dude with the really long beard. He was living with family and at dinner, the 10 year old started asking him about what it was like to have a beard… and eventually he asked him “Grampa, do you sleep with your beard under the blanked or on the outside?” The next morning, Gramps showed up with his beard cut off…
Also reminded of the centipede who was asked how he managed all those legs… and was left immobile.
Peanuts did the same thing when Lucy became aware of her tongue.
Thanks, Rat. I appreciate the reminder.
Proof that Pastis is evil.
Ask any wind- or brass-playing musician, and the answer to Rat’s query will be “yes” every time.
Good one Pastis! You belong on a pirate ship (said while holding my tongue)
This joke goes back at least to the Peanuts cartoon for 3 February 1963 (https://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1963/02/03).
Just bit mine, thanks Rat!
Most people forget they’re wearing any clothes during the day!
I think both readers fell for it…
Tongue …….. Tis the reason for Ice Cream Cones ;-)
If you are in a deli eating a tongue sandwich, can the tongue taste you tasting it? Inquiring minds want to know.
Male humor, more specifically “Dad” humor is this. You need the keys to the mens bathroom to appreciate or understand this.
Keep your tongue inside.
I hate it when I become conscious of my nose and end up cross-eyed!
That dumb Pig made me LOL.
It’s pothole season. Don’t drive with your tongue between your teeth.
Same thing when you think about blinking. . . (see what I did there?)
Yes, he does, and yeth, we do.
This strip reminds me of a 60’s (?) Peanuts strip in which Linus became “aware” of his tongue.
Now you made my tongue depressed.
Neither my native tongue nor my foreign one chose to comment on this. I cannot speak with a forked tongue!
There was a ‘Peanuts’ strip where Linus mentioned problems with his tongue, and it drove Lucy crazy.
That remindth me. I thould get up and put my denturth in. . .
When I saw this, I immediately thought of an old Peanuts strip that GoComics has available: https://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1963/02/03
Thatth thoo bad, Pig!
I remember when Linus pulled this on Lucy. Just sayin’…
I put the tip of my tongue at the roof of my mouth; keeps the chi flowing smoothly ;-D
Nope. Didn’t affect me. I don’t know about other people, though.
But your in the “comitch”
I think Pastis was high when he wrote this.
Peanuts did the same joke in 1963. I have no idea why I remember it.https://www.gocomics.com/peanuts/1963/02/03
Thanks for that. Now I have this strange compulsion to have the lower front teeth removed…
Who was the idiot who spelled lisp with an “s” in it?
One time my tongue got twisted around my eyetooth & I couldn’t see what I was saying!
Old Peanuts strip with Linus. Stealing from the best.
drawing attention to something one takes for granted can really screw things up. I finally found a way to hit a golf ball in a not-terrible way and my brother goes…"Nice, How did you do that?"…so much for decent swing.
This was the subject of a Peanuts Sunday strip back in the fifties
Hmm… I’m often conscious of my tongue. It’s the hippopotamus that bothers me.
When you are standing still and start to walk, do you lead off with your right foot or left foot?
This is either a rerun or a deja vu. I’ve read this before.
Do you know how often you blink?
How fast are you breathing?
ran out of story ideas, huh?
I love you Pig !
Last year, when nothing had closed down YET, and we told to avoid crowds, a wash our hands, and DON’T TOUCH YOUR FACE, I mentioned, at the bar, that since hearing that, my nose had itched….setting off a chain reaction.
Oh thit ! …thankth Pathith !
Evil, Stephan! EVIL!!
Hold your tongue,Rat.
And after reading my comment, you are all breathing manually.
It doesn’t work on people who are eating double Gloucester cheese with onions and chives while reading the comics.
I fear good Pig is too suggestible. Rat doesn’t bother me (though I do occasionally laugh uncontrollably at inappropriate times because of him)….
A commentary on consciousness, which is grist for the mill, Stephan, because there is a recommended, I can’t quite say required, position for the tongue in vipassana meditation (gently resting against the roof of the mouth touching the back of the upper teeth).
He didn’t derail my morning, because I didn’t read it until night time.
I Was Not Paying Attention To The Strip So HA!
This was originally a Peanuts joke.
My teeth tensed up.
