    Default Pearls Before Swine

    This past week the storyline in Pearls Before Swine did a take-off on Alice in Wonderland, however things got out of hand when one of the characters started to eat everyone in the story.

    Today's strip has the cartoonist mother calling the cartoonist who is vacationing in Maui that all of the strip's characters have been eaten.

    As do I. That and "Get Fuzzy" have been my favorites in recent years. Oh, and "9 Chickweed Lane."

    I like "Retail" too, it is so real........Reminds me so much of my years slaving away in stores. Last week's theme was absolutely authentic focusing on people who think it's going to be a cruise job days only (m-f), no nights working the holiday season in a store. Ho ho ho!

    Today's strip had Goat remarking on his experience the day before and Rat stops him because he used up his 140 character limit.

    Larry the crocodile's son Junior lost a tooth on Wednesday and Larry's wife said he had to be the tooth fairy and leave something of value under Junior's pillow, which happened to be can of beer.

    Something else I noticed about the strip. Whenever the characters are at the table talking about stuff, in most of the cases they always face towards the left. Also noticed that there is a plate on the table and it's usually empty.

    Certainly the comics page is not what it used to be (which was for kids); now there's something for everyone, and an amazing amount of creativity.

    Seems that the strip has an issue (or a storyline) with a character from another comic strip that doesn't wear pants (in this case it is Ziggy).

    Yeah - they love to pick on other comics. Remember all the times they've "attacked" characters from "Family Circus?"

    Today's strip has Rat saying that he worked out a deal such that Ziggy will be wearing pants in the Ziggy strip today.

    Since the Advertiser or the Star Bulletin doesn't carries the daily Ziggy strip (the Advertiser only does the Sunday version) the only way to check it out is via the Ziggy website for today.

    Was kind of interesting to read the comments left by the Pearls before Swine fans.

    Friday's strip of Pearls Before Swine have the crocodiles gathering a pitchfork and touch and yelling out "Keel Da Google".

    And of course Saturday's strip has Larry destorying laptops because Google is inside of it.

    A respected comic friend mentioned today's strip.

    I guess I'll catch up on what I've missed.

    New character called Officer Potus (an elephant wearing a police officer's uniform) who seems to be an ally of the crocodiles showed up on Sunday's strip as well as today.

    Poor Pig, Monday he returns a library book that is 11 days overdue and the library policy after 10 days is not to charge the patron but rather toture them in their dungeon.

    And Wednesday's strip has Pig being knocked out by the strip's copyright text that is normally inbetween the panels.

    When my cats aren't happy, I'm not happy. Not because I care about their mood but because I know they're just sitting there thinking up ways to get even.

    The librarians in the Pearls Before Swine univerise seem to be tough and/or serious people, in the 1/16/11 strip they throw bricks into patrons windows reminding them that they overdue books.
