    At least Stephan has the sign in proper grammatical form this time:
    .
    See:

    .
    The sign at the above url reads “lemming’s”, singular, which is wrong. It should have read, and now does, “lemmings’,” plural.
    .
    Thanks for the correction, Stephan.

    Lemmings became the subject of a popular misconception that they commit mass suicide when they migrate. It is not a mass suicide, but the result of their migratory behavior. Driven by strong biological urges, some species of lemmings may migrate in large groups when population density becomes too great. Lemmings can swim and may choose to cross a body of water in search of a new habitat. In such cases, many may drown if the body of water is so wide as to stretch their physical capability to the limit. This fact, combined with the unexplained fluctuations in the population of Norwegian lemmings, gave rise to the misconception.9

    People who deny lemming suicide need to go jump off a cliff.

    Well, science aside, I know why these lemmings are committing suicide.


    They’re just dying to be in a comic strip.

    Meanwhile…you think debunking the tales about lemming suicide will “prove” that Pearls Before Swine isn’t “realistic?”


    LOL!! Guess you missed the talking pig and rat.

    Rerturn of the Lemmings. Or maybe we should call them the Refusings cause they refuse to follow lemming nature and commit mass suicide.

    Lemmings’ Leap is relatively spacious; so why are these lemmings standing one upon another’s shoulders instead of one behind/beside another?
    A) Because it’s a cartoon and it looks funnier that way;
    B) Because they’re lemmings and it looks funnier that way;
    C) Because they’re an acrobatic act fleeing in desperation from Cirque du Soleil, and it looks funnier that way;
    D) Because that Bob is an awfully bossy fellow and insists on being top dog—err, top lemming.
    Or, the ever-popular Pastis Choice, E), it’s easier to draw that way.
