    First, how does Penn University become Penn Ultimate?
    Second, How does Ultimate Frisbee become Ultimate Penn?

    “Ultimate” is a type of team Frisbee™ if that’s what you’re asking. Interesting, Pastis used Frisbee without a™, which may draw the attention of the Wham-o people.

    Not Penn University > Penn Ultimate. Sean Penn > Penn Ultimate. Then, Ultimate Frisbee > Ultimate, followed by Penn(sylvania) Pen. So, it’s Pig’s penultimate Penn Ultimate Ultimate Penn pen. And no, Stephan Pastis has no shame (and we WERE warned yesterday, weren’t we?)!

    no, it doesn’t, rat, because if it did we wouldn’t have great strips like these!

    Pastis, you wily rogue! This paronomasia is not really a punishable offense, so I’ll just pen a Yellow Card this time—your penultimate chance at showing some sense of shame. Dastardly Word Warrior!

    I have 3 or 4 pens that I never lend but I’d never make fun of them like that! LOL

    Stephen appears to be pondering it. I think we all know the answer is “no”.
