    I’m more into Baja Blast Mountain Dew than regular Mountain Dew which can be found at Taco Bell as well as — surprisingly — my employed grocery store.

    pastis classic sunday strip is setting up a pun. Remember “I Don’t Like Green Ags and Hamm”? “To Bea or not to Bea”? “Thinking outside the Bach”? This is lovely, too.

    Hell refuses to take excessive pun makers. And St. Pter won’t even leet them get near the pearly gates. The only place for them is purgatory, where they serve as torture for the rest of the souls sent to purgatory.
