    It’s like seeing a couple of trains on one track heading to each other. You know what will happen, and you can’t bear to look…but you do.

    I saw this pun coming in the first panel, but the payoff was still brilliantly funny. Bravo, Stephan.

    Maybe Goat would be in a better mood if he made a little doe.

    Don’t worry, a spoonful of sugar helps the puns go down.

    Sorry, I meant to say clever!

    Now that was quite atrocious in the second to the last panel.

    Yes, that’s what those last panels are for. And I’m pretty sure he doesn’t read these comments, so giving him your feedback here isn’t going to help.

    Well, corny or not, it was still impressive that Stephan pulled it off with only four panels for the setup. Good job.

    ARRGGH!

    Another casualty of the Punic wars…

    Julie Andrews has a penchant for famously salty language. So I’m sure she’d be even more explicit than Rat in saying just exactly what Cartoon-Pastis deserves for perpetrating this highly contrived groaner.
    I, for my part, kinda liked it because it was so well contrived….

    Pastis is just trying to sound precocious.

    @Sherlock Watson

    or if he made out with a little doe…

    Doe, a deer, a female deer …

    Reminiscent of an old 1-panel comic which portrayed visual puns (can’t remember the name)- a picture went with each part:

    Super Cow
    A Fragile List
    Stick
    Eggs
    Pea
    Alley
    Dough
    Shush!
