Sometimes the best route is the simplest, and I thought Gandhi didn’t hate anything or anyone.
Okay, I’m lost. Was there or wasn’t there a pun?
There’s an old joke about Ghandi having bad breath. Let’s see if Pastis uses it this week.
That’s the joke, Mr Pastis’ puns are so bad that even Gandhi hates them.
Gandhi truthfully, fearlessly, and non-violently hates Stephan’s puns.
An eye for a eye may make the whole world blind, but it will keep Pastis from writing more puns.
Anjezë Gonxhe Bojaxhiu is right behing him, and she’s going to use that staff.
wow! like getting punched in the mouth by the tooth fairy.
For fans of Mark Williams in The Fast Show: “I’ll get Mahatma coat.”
Mohandas on the table…
We’ve all heard the tired joke that says Nietzsche is peachy, but Sartre is smarter…. so I won’t repeat it.
However….I do think Ghandi is dandy, even if Immanuel Kant stand him, and Pig prefers Bacon.
OK, I know that was pretty Laozi….I’ll try not to do any More….
But I have to say, I think without a Dao, philosophy was just meant to Confucius…. So I’ll take puns any day.
Oh man, I’d love to see him beat him senseless with that stick! WAP! WAP! WAP! You go Gandhi……WAP!!
Gandhi was a racist. See http://www.allempires.com/forum/forum_posts.asp?TID=31008 for a few quotes.
Could they be a lighter term for hate…like——antipathy?
He was Gandhi, now he’s back, eh?
Gandhi needs to get on the end of a very long line.
Ask him what he thinks of Western civilization. The last time he was asked that, he replied, “I think it would be a very good idea.”
It is hard to take anyone seriously whose forenames were ‘Goosey-Goosey’
It won’t be long and Pastis will have rat making salt from seawater..
Awwww… Sorry, Stephan. First it’s Rat, then it’s Goat and now it’s somebody really famous.
But I still love your puns!
Gandhi is one those lucky people who’s managed to create an image that looks really good while reality was definitely different.
Next up: Mother Teresa disses Pastis.
Hate’s a pretty strong word, Mr. Gandhi. Perhaps Pastis will be the first to provoke Gandhi to violence… now that would be an accomplishment!
I personally love your puns Stephan
Why are some of the Pearls Before Swine’s just one of the characters talking to Stephan Pastis?
I’ve always thought that “eye for an eye will make the whole world blind” was stupid. Does that mean that half the world will violently assault the other half?
“Don’t cry for me Arch and Tina” – gonna be hard to top that.
“Hi-are you still dead?”
Guard Duck vs. Gandhi. Fight!
Now if Ghandi would just bop him on the head with the walking stick, THAT would be funny.
I heard that he became an American citizen and was quite proud of it. In fact, he often liked to sing, “I’m a Yankee Doodle Gandhi…”
Ghandi is going to go to each one of your homes and disconnect your internet services.
Of course there’s a pun in this strip! It’s visual: Am I the only one who noticed the Ghandi cane?
Simple humor for simple folks, like me. Rat is sooo insightful. Gandhi is cute. Cartoon-Boy is a clever lad; yes he is! (Pets Pastis’s head.)
@mdcdjg2008I think that’s courtesy of all the propaganda around him. Don’t want to ignite a flame war here, but there are a lot of Indians (including me) who don’t like what he did to India.
And I’m not talking about gaining independence for the country – he was but one of the many people who got us that (though he usually gets 100% of the credit)
I love puns.
So much for any fashion improvement in this strip.
stick it to him Ghandi
That’s not Gandhi! He doesn’t look anything like Ben Kingsley!
I don’t know if you could say hatred, but Ghandi had a definite moodiness towards Big Mac’s.
Thanks. I do appreciate that.
But (sniffle) I pun my little heart out for you guys…and the only person I can get to love me is a 120+- year-old dead guy?
Kinda pathetic…. sigh…..
Which ought to show something about Stephan’s life….
Except somehow, he has a wife and kids….poor things….
i fear unnecessary unfunny controversy coming up…
swr…. some are very touching.
I love the puns. And Gandhi looks great!
This one made me smile.
Just to ease the minds of anyone noticing the remarks about Gandhis’s racism- Gandhi was raised & educated with British values, including racism. As a young man he definitely had some horrible ideas. How much he evolved is debatable. Later her would say,
“In judging myself I shall try to be as harsh as truth, as I want others also to be. Measuring myself by that standard I must exclaim with Surdas: ’ Where is there a wretch So wicked and loathsome as I? I have forsaken my Maker, So faithless have I been.’ For it is an unbroken torture to me that I am still so far from him, who, as I fully know, governs every breath of my life, and whose offspring I am. I know that it is the evil passions within that keep me so far from Him, and yet I cannot get away from them.” “You must not lose faith in humanity. Humanity is an ocean; if a few drops of the ocean are dirty, the ocean does not become dirty.”_Gandhi was as flawed as any great historical figure, but that shouldn’t take away from his positive ideas & achievements.
This is my favorite Pearls all-time.
