    These are wild lemmings, not urban ones.

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

    http://www.gocomics.com/pearlsbeforeswine/2012/10/23
    .
    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.

    Careful … don’t feed the grammar trolls.


    Besides, maybe only one will choose to leap.

    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.
