    I believe I do the same thing, but WITHOUT the outfit PIG wore in this strip ALL THE TIME, just, as my mom says, “naturally!” Dan aka…ps without the “fake” bits!

    It would be less bad and scary if he wasn’t wearing a skirt and jumping up and down.

    I’m trying to read Pig’s expression in the last panel.

    I can’t tell if he’s happy about his good work, or saddened by the necessity for it.

    Perhaps that is, essentially, his “resting reassurer face.”

    That’s pig, but my opinion is that he should be a superhero and it should be his superpower. And I know Pastis already thought of that…;)

    Except “cheerleaders” no longer lead cheers. They’re basically just practicing for the pole; they all go to the same “cheer” camps and learn the same Junior Stripper routines.

    This was a very good one. Pastis needs to give us more of these where Pig is being decent.

    Just for inspiration or a cheer up, go on YouTube and search for spoken word artist “Prince Ea”. Amazing stuff he’s posting.
