    I think future biographers would want a little more detail on how Rat silenced doubters.

    Really, Goat, why do you bother engaging Rat, when you know it will only end badly?

    Goat looks a little like pig in that last panel.

    In sixty years from this event an elderly Rat will be sitting in the nursing home, where the nurses and others who attend to the folks there are largely ignoring him (do to his abusive nature to them) except when they absolutely have to change his diapper (yep, Rat’s going to have to wear a diapper, but Pig, Goat, Zebra, and Guard Duck won’t need one) or wipe his mouth do to his excesive drooling (most of the seniors there ain’t drooling, just Rat), when a biographer comes in.

    Biographer: “Mr. Rat, I Joe Schmoe, biographer to the stars.”

    Rat: “Oh, I knew you’d be coming to do my biography. Here, I recorded the events of my life so you can get an accurate account of my life.”

    Biographer: “That won’t be needed, sir.”

    Rat: “It won’t? Oh, I see you already managed to read it and have written my biography already. Just want to give me the very first copy, eh?”

    Biographer: “I’m here to talk to you about the most interesting person you know?”

    Rat: “That’s me! Well, I was born…….”

    Biographer: “No, I’m afraid you misunderstand. I want to talk about Mr. Pastis. What, you think someone actually want’s to read a bio on a stuck up jerk with no major redeeming values like you?”

    So might prosecutors; don’t tweet anything you wouldn’t want to answer for in a Federal court…

    Rat has dumped poor, overly erudite Goat headfirst into the trash, causing Goat to spill his coffee! Rat’s literary aspirations may not turn out so well, however.
