    The joke only works if the invisible fence is protecting a grassy area. Invisible fences are often intended to prevent pets from leaving the lawn and yard.

    That’s the punch of the pun: a “sward” is a grassy area.

    Groan. Wonder how long it will be, before Pastis uses that one in Pearls Before Swine?

    There has got to be a shorter, more credible way to introduce Horace each time. Still, it’s better than when “Curtis” brings back the underground music store.

    I just learned a new word today (sward). Who says comics aren’t educational.

    @obert

    Did you think I coincidentally brought up grassy areas? My point was that the sward must have some attractive power that the pen could thwart, because I couldn’t think of anything else a sward could bring to a competition of might.
