    Mahatma Gandhi, India’s great spiritual leader, was known for having very human problems.

    He made his own clothes but his skills did not extend to shoe-making so he walked barefoot most of the time on his long walks seeking enlightenment. As a result his feet grew very thick soles, and often had corns too.

    His diet was less than ideal as well. He participated in hunger strikes. This, naturally, led to his body being so thin, a good gust of wind could blow him away. Too, he often drank his own urine to slake his thirst. This gave him breath that killed elephants at 50 paces.

    So, all in all Gandhi was a.…..

    Blaming Gandhi for the violence that followed the partition of India into India and Pakistan is a bit like blaming Jesus Christ for all the violence done in the name of Christianity, or the Prophet for the violence done in the name of Islam. Gandhi fought to keep the nation united, but long-simmering religious and racial animosity came to a boil and no one could have prevented it. The Indian independence movement didn’t begin with Gandhi; he simply brought a novel tactic to the table – non-violent resistance. He certainly wasn’t perfect, but he was no “mass-murderer.”

    This is about as funny as having Lincoln appear and start buying slaves. Not everything is sacred, but not everything is funny, either.

    What did Lincoln say when he woke up with a hangover?
    ’I freed who?

    Rat appreciates this version of ‘non-violence’.

    As my sis used to say, “I float like a butterfly and sting like a bee…I’m the baddest in the world; I’m Mahatma Ghandi.”

    This is as funny as Martin Luther King dressed in Ku Klux Klan gear. Sorry, Stephan, no gold star from me.

    The first thing I do most mornings when I switch on my computer is look up Pearls. I am a great fan. It is the only strip I follow. This is the least funny Pearls out of the hundreds I have enjoyed.
