    According to the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, Pig is more qualified than Rat.

    It’s not who is in charge that runs the world. It’s the advisors, they tell the big cheese what to do. They are the problem.

    Rat’s at a diner. He mentions idiots. Now he just orders them…… could someone please tell the chef to serve Rat a fresh order of idiots?

    Now it’s true. That doddering old fool in the White House today can’t even find his pants in the morning, much less read a teleprompter. So his fascist handlers just prop him up — until he trips over a sandbag — and go on about their work to make America a land of limited opportunity.

    Someone has to take charge of this world and it might as well be women because the men seem to have a horrible track record unless you continue to let the men rewrite history.

    Rat wants everything to be the way he says it is, even if it’s completely irrational or wrong.

    Is there a solid definition of “an idiot” that can be used to all people?

    Perhaps people in a certain percentile of intelligence.

    ““Of all tyrannies, a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It would be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.” -“The Humanitarian Theory of Punishment,” in God in the Dock” — C.S. Lewis

    I’m disappointed that the last frame wasn’t Rat giving Goat his orders.

    Not that I think Goat is an idiot, but I’m sure Rat thinks everyone other than him is.

    I guess what the world needs is a Volodomyr Zelenskyy. Someone who can be a hero and not a dictator. Someone smart, young, agile, very likeable and an incredible sense of humor.
