    Being food for a raptor is a noble fate.

    So, what are you saying, second-to-top-lemming-who-then-became-top-lemming – it’s best to take your own life (removing all chance of living a life like top-lemming-who-was-taken-by-a-hawk was describing), than to try and live such a life…just because neither option guarantees that such a life will actually be lived?

    On a side note, I’m quite positive that that lemming tower could not possibly stand up, leaning so far over like that. Curse you, cartoon physics!

    I heard a story abut a stray puppy that a hawk grabbed and dropped him. A family on seeing this rescued him and adopted him. So maybe this guy’s future is better than it seems. A couple claw scars and broken bones in between.

    Yeah, his cred may be low, but he’ll reach new heights…temporarily.

    It would only lower his credibility if he jumped after he finished saying it. That’s more an unforseen circumstance that results in the termination of one’s life. In this case as the lemming is prey to the hawk you could say the hawk is murdering the lemming. However it wouldn’t have to be murder that results in the unforseen termination of one’s life. Coming down with some disease could do it, an accident could do it, any number of things could. None of which would lower one’s credibility when they say “Let’s not commit suicide but let’s live.”

    Actually, his credibility is still intact. The bird is filled with wonder and joy (not to mention a lemming).

    Fly me to the moon!
    I shall raise you up on eagle’s wings!
    Up, up and away!

    Leave it to Pastis to see a still darker side to life, and make it funny.

    The hawk just took the lemming off for lunch. What’s wrong with that?
