    The present is a gift.

    The past is a headache.

    The future is a menace.

    I’m with Rat on this one. It’s worth mentioning that the first place many people saw this particular banality was in a Family Circus strip.

    Leave it to Rat to cop a meme from Dilbert (Alice’s Fist of Death) and make Goat pay the price!

    Of course there are times when Goat merits a slap or two….
