    Trust me, Rat, if the Jefs of the world could be banned for life, someone would have done it long ago.

    It’s still Thursday in Pacific time. I was confused when no one’s comments appeared before mine. Now I forgot what I was going to post.

    Hey, Rat, shouldn’t you try to get cartoon Stephan Pastis banned for life too? His lame puns. Ring any bells? (Comic strip censor) If we did that, then “Pearls Before Swine” would be no more.

    @TEMPLO S.U.D.

    Rat thinks he should write the strip!

    I share your opinion. The cops in Salt Lake won’t do anything about law-breaking pedal bikers because the mayor is rabidly pro-bike and wants to be seen as a “green” politician.

    Pastis breaks the fourth wall so much it likes it doesn’t even exist. He should start having comics that break the fifth wall where he reveals the cartoon artist that draws the Pastis character… the meta-Pastis. And soon they’d be infinite meta-meta-Pastis characters. Maybe Rat could end up being meta-meta-meta Pastis.

    Jef is a MAMIL … Middle Aged Man In Lycra

    … a term that has caught on rapidly here in Aus for silly old blokes that suit up (in Lycra) and terrorise the roads in huge packs as they ride a few kilometres to coffee shops where they sit around for hours drinking coffee and “shooting the breeze”.

    I couldn’t stand bikers when I was one. I was one of the veeeery few that obeyed the rules of the road. Thus I only had problems with motorists twice, despite biking from 1982 to 2000. Those rules of the road are there for a reason, but our fools in office won’t enforce the laws.
    I’ve never quite figured out why the ridiculous tights. Some of the girls at work suggested I wear them back in the 1980s, but I never saw the sense of it. I was doing it for exercise (and to get to work) so an extra <1mph less didn’t matter much to me.
    I didn’t understand helmets, either. The idea of breaking every law in the DMV manual, being discourteous to everyone else on the road, doing stupid things like running stop lights, and this piece of plastic and styrofoam was supposed to save you when your viscera splattered from running into a bus? Or when you ran off the road from going twice as fast as you safely could?
    The littering that bikers do is especially vexing. It’s been a major problem here in oregon. They just throw their trash on the road. Eat an energy bar, toss the wrapper. Drink an energy drink, toss the can/bottle. When there’s a race, it’s a garbage pile for miles.

    There’s plenty of processed junk in the “health food” marketplace. Just read a few labels.

    Comic Strip Censor needs to have the contents of that package “of healthy snacks” analyzed. I wouldn’t be surprised if Jef is juicing. Then, maybe Rat could get his wish. And I’d concur in his satisfaction. Ban Jef! Ban Jef! Ban Jef!
