Rat: Hey there, Goat. Did you enjoy our barbecue yesterday. Goat: Sure did. Thanks for inviting me. Rat: You're welcome. And here's my bill. Goat: Bill? You expect me to pay for a party you invited me to? Rat: No. And that's why I've brought a lawyer. Lawyer: Prepare to lose everything. Goat: I give up.

    While the lawyer was in law school he supported himself by working for the IRS.

    Pay to PARTY. A lot like paying for television that should be free anyways, given all the advertisers.

    Funny timing, cos honestly, I just got an invitation to a “party”…. including a link to where I can buy a discounted ticket.

    The idea of charging for the event, to recoup expenses, as it says, doesn’t seem as odd to me as the idea of calling it a “party Invitation”.

    At least I know ahead of time how much it would cost, though.

    Rat’s idea might come in handy —

    “Remember when I made you tacos last Saturday?

    And by the way, this is Rocco, my enforcer."

    Isn’t a rat with a lawyer redundant?

    Pastis is just showing off his inside knowledge of the species! For all we know, Rat was duped into this by his shyster lawyer.

    In hindsight, it looks like Pastis may be taking a jab at his former career.

    Goat should countersue. In addition, he should call the County Health Department and get them to slam the BBQ with a health hazard violation due to severe rodent infestation. Very high risk of food-borne illness.

    Wish I had a dollar for everybody who USED to be a lawyer.Could have become an attorney, but I spent a few years as a kid on a low-rent farm shoveling, mucking, etc and there are just some things i won’t do.

    It would be easier for me to kill someone cleanly than to serve an eviction notice on a decent person, or…well, you can imagine. How horribly debased the noble profession of law has become!

    As much as I despise our litigious lawyers, I can’t say I’ve ever seen one wearing dark glasses indoors to read papers. That’s more of a hollywood narcissist style.

    Goat might have to talk ol’ Pastis into breaking out the law books again and being his defense attorney.

    Maybe Rat needs money to pay his lawyer for his upcoming trial for running over a cyclist
