    He got the idea from a fortune-telling mother who specializes in those things: the Origami Salami Tsunami Swami Mommy.

    Actually, Rat, that’s one of Stephan’s better puns.

    Ah, the lowly pun, how often it is maligned.

    Would it make Rat happy if Stephan stayed in jail while the animals and baby were bailed out?

    The final panel always gets a laugh and never gets old.

    I do hope the Swami Mommy warned my left-wing friend, Tommy, the Commie.

    I think an origami salami tsunami would drive him quite balmy.

    He hates salami…. though he does buy pastrami to feed his gourami.

    Folks! Wake up and repent daydreaming in school……..That is NOT A PUN; it"s an alliteration……..a repetition of two or more words beginning with the same letter, or having the same sound. Stephan makes wonderfully, groan-inducing puns….but this aint one ofem.

    Before you criticise others, check your facts.
    An alliteration uses the same consonant (consonantal alliteration) or a vowel, not necessarily the same vowel (vocalic alliteration), at the BEGINNING of each word or each stressed syllable in a line of verse, as in around the rock the ragged rascal ran. Whereas a pun uses words or phrases to exploit ambiguities and innuendoes in their meaning, usually for humorous effect; a play on words.
    Stephan is a very clever and funny punster.

    Rhyming words, actually, but simply rhyming words does not make Pastis a poet.

    On a visit to an art gallery we sausage an origami. As for the quality of the pun, I think it was the wurst.
