    I could picture Rat singing ‘I will, I will rock you’ as he is beating the tar out of Stephan.

    Not the most complicated, but I guess it meets the bar for a Sunday pun.

    I could tell from the first panel that there was a pun coming, so I put my hand over the last two panels to see if I could guess what it was. I couldn’t.

    I could sense a pun coming. I wanded to know how he would use those magicians tools.

    I thought of requesting help assistance: “Help help me Wanda.”

    I did not expect to see any wan dead.

    On our Red Cross CPR training, we were taught to perform chest compressions timed to the beat of the BeeGee’s “Staying Alive” – or – Queen’s “Another One Bites The Dust.”

    I guess it depends upon whether you’re an optimist or a pessimist . . .

    Well done, Rat! You are this league’s batting champion against the Cartoon-Boys, of whom Another One Bites the Dust! BAM! And Another One Bites the Dust! BAM!

    Making all Cartoon-Boys pay for the Pastis Puns is like playing Whack-a-Mole!

    On behalf of PBS readers, I apologize to Queen….
