Sadly, I need a refund.
I could smell that one coming from a mile away, and I could smell it going from a mile away.
I need a refund too, please. ;-)
Wow — even Goat and Pig are protesting Stephan’s puns now!
You have no sense of shame, Steffie.
I doubt that they would let Pig join NOW. Wrong species and wrong gender.
Pastis has left the building.
Maybe Pig can join N.O.P.E. – Nationally Organized Pun Eliminators…
Just for the record, NEFFA is a very real organization, well worth supporting. And the annual NEFFA dance and music festival, coming up this April near Boston, is really quite amazing and very well worth attending.
We need a law guaranteeing prison time for repeated bad puns.
Hey, it’s still better than the puns (or whatever they are) in Crankshaft.
thank you mr. pastis! i’m not worthy!
they are both real organizations xD
We need a class action suit……
I love the puns. Keep ’em coming!!!!!!!!
I demand a refund, too! Cartoon-Pastis should be tarred and feathered! —That would be a funny sight; maybe Li’l (L’il; Lil’ ?) Guard Duck could be in charge….
now does good work
I could here Elvis singing “It’s now are never” in the background.
I don’t care what anyone else says, I chuckled.
Where is Rat with his stick-o-pain?
TY Mr. P. I enjoy a good groan!
n.e.f.f.a. have so many been so punned by so few, as n.o.w.
Hey, no cig! New Year’s resolution? Go for it!
HAHAHHAHA I like that!
Ike aim. Ice saw. Ike on Kurd.
Just got the latest treasury yesterday. This pun is almost as good as that one. That one’s good cause it’s Pig getting Goat and Rat to do the pun.
Elvis Presley – it’s now or never on youtube
Oh man…(shakes head). And I laughed, so which is worse?
I’m pretty sure men can join N.O.W., since it’s an organization FOR women, not just OF women.
I enjoy the puns. With the Sunday strips, I always read the first couple of panels trying to figure out if it will be a pun strip. This was pretty easy – some of them are a stretch, like Free At-lass. :)
Thank you for the pun. But really, you can stop…that’s a N.E.F.F.A. N.O.W.
The badder the better. laugh out loud, but if need be I’ll take a refund.
Oh the humanity!!!!!
another day at the beach
All SP’s puns end with the characters complaining.
I also want his new book.
Yep, It was a subtle as a Freight Train, on these types Steph has become more than a little predictable. But alas, I still like them all……..
Better to be a pig than a ham
Has there ever been a PBS where the characters set up the pun but refused to say it…then went and asked Stephan for more money to actually do it?
Having been to N.E.F.F.A., I was so distracted by hopes of dance talk that the punchline was extra good for me. Laughing when your hopes are dashed, that’s my marker for good comedy. Thanks Stephan!
…and to think I voted against pun control…..
Vidi, Vici, Visa….I came, I saw, I purchased
No reason puns should be limited to English.
All those who can do better than Pastis, please stop wasting your time commenting here. Make your submission to the syndicate and get your superior strip published.
Thought a pun about Clog Dancing was coming.
puns, puns of this wonderful sort / the more we read, the more we snort / the more we snort the better we choke / when groaning but grinning at this well crafted joke.
Please don’t tell me his prom date wasn’t his mom!
Dolphins eat Pastis.
….And does eat oats, and little lambs eat ivy
I saw this one coming in the second panel. it’s pretty bad when even Goat is annoyed.
Generally speaking, any pun is worth the effort to set it up. This one pushes the envelope though.
“A puns is the lowest form of humor – unless you think of it first” – Someone Famous, but I don’t recall who.
That is awesome!
WAY too heavy… Having lived in GT county, it did catch my eye, but you have to understand, readers of PBS tend to suspend any semblance of reality during the reading and subsequent discourse.I know I do!
Remember, people: A pun at maturity is fully groan!
Maybe that’s from the -Veni, Vidi, Vidalia
Or, as we say around here -Veni, Vidi, Vicunaor in Spanish, Vi una llama(Now that’s a load of Guanaco!)The Alpaca-lypse is near….
Oddly, no one pointed out that my previous icon was not of a packrat. Now it is..The previous photo was of our Ratemus, long gone the way of all mortal things. .Hmm, the word “mortal” contains both “mort” and “rat”. Coincidence? I think not.
A “Hire” power is telling me to stop now…. I have to leave for workIt’s been realand it’s been fun,but it ain’t been real fun.
Gee Whiz . . . kind of sounds like gender based discrimination to me.
MOST COMMENTERS: Your puns are KILLERS today! Thanks!
I knew a pun was coming, although I didn’t see the exact one coming.
Stephan, you are THE pun master. Whether that’s good or bad, I’m not sure.
Nah—I love reading. Keep it up.
I love the pun strips. (I know, I know, I’m just encouraging him . . .)
For any Man to support any feminist organization like NOW, means he has to join the male equilivant which is:
National Organization of Self Loathing Males who want to be discriminated against, subjected to violence and abuse and treated like second-class citizens by female chauvinistic Feminists, they gladly spend money on, and thank them for doing it at the same time, and think they are superior to other men as they treat women as equals
Either that, or marry one of the non-Lesbian Feminists
Or, as El Rushbo calls them, the National Association of Gals. NAGs for short… ;-)
I appreciate a good pun..that wasn’t it..
There’s nothing like a good pun.And that was nothing like a good pun.
I love Pastis’ puns! It wouldn’t be PBS without them at least once a week. And, we all have favorite characters – there are plenty to choose frrom.
hahahaha… i gotta turn in my mensa card! i didn’t see that one coming AND i laughed out loud!
“It’s Now or Never”?? Today’s travesty should be marked “Return to Sender”!!
I like the occasional pun, as long as he doesn’t do it too often. You can have too much of a good thing.
Is N.E.F.F.S. a real thing? or is it a handy acronym?
Yes, men can join NOW. My husband went with me to a very interesting NOW meeting today and was far from the only man there and welcomed by all he talked to.
I love his puns
