    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.

    Sherlock….


    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.

    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.

    It’s not a pun, it’s not alliteration…
    but it’s wordplay.

    It’s rhyming words, but not rhyming lines like in a poem….
    (not that all poems rhyme.)

    I guess I’d say it’s
    a form of parachesis…
    a very tight form, since the words are fairly exact rhymes…

    But really, who cares WHAT literary device it is….

    It’s funny.
    Isn’t that the point?

    Well, it was the point until you guys beat it into submission. This paronomasia is unexpected because it comes from Pig, who is himself something of a salami most of the time. Cartoon-Pastis must be used to the criticism by now….
