    Is Pig always the straight man? He never threatens Stephan, unlike Rat. I’m surprised Goat is angry.

    He tried to ask both Lucy and later her little sister Jen on a date, but neither Lucy nor wee Jen would.

    When George Harrison did his one American tour, he changed the line to “Something in the way she moves it” with a little sneer.

    Dreadful. Worthless. It’s the exact same strip every time: “Pastis” does a terrible gag, and in the last panel, one of his characters insults (or physically abuses) him for it. Why would you do that same strip more than once ever? Why would he do that like every third Sunday when he’s capable of doing a strip that’s actually entertaining instead?

    When you think about it reverse engineering a phrase into a pun like takes more than a bit of talent.
