    you just need to know that pearls before swine (another great comic, btw) has loads of bad puns, similar to the one jason’d set up.

    Here’s Bill’s blog post:

    “Stephan Pastis sometimes does this sort of extreme rhyming in Pearls Before Swine and it seemed like a fun thing for Jason to try. The “noodle incident” was a never-explained event occasionally referred to in Calvin and Hobbes.”

    Today’s rhyming pun in Pearls is “Dunk rye for me, Arch and Tina” (say it out loud fast).

    Way more ambitious than anything Stephan’s gone for.

    But that’s Jason for you.

    knowing Calvin, it is far better to let your imagination run with the idea…..

    Stephan does a great job with those puns/rhymes. He even makes fun of himself when he does it, too. Rat usually always goes into his office and tell him that he’s going to slap him or something. Pearls is one of my favorite strips as of late.

    This is what comics call a labored gag.

    Which was Bill Watterson’s point when he set up that gag in C & H. Nobody knows what the “noodle incident” was, precisely so it COULD be left to the readers to imagine it for themselves.

    … and I always thought that the “noodle incident” was when Calvin was going to explain the brains in class… … even Hobbes said “Ugh”

    Well Calvin did give a pumpkin a lobotomy when he carved a joack-o-lantern. And Hobbes almost fainted.

    I suspect PBS is going to have an increased readership now. Good for SP. He has been complaining lately about the death of newspapers and hence his readers.

    I wish PBS was on this site, along with several others I have to go off-site to see.
