    Goat should have phrased that differently: “Go to hell, Rat.”

    Let’s hope Reinhold Niebuhr has the serenity to not roll over in his grave.

    I predict Pastis is going to get some angry letters about this one.

    I always thought there should be a fourth verse:And give me the perspective to understand that something does not need to be changed simply because I don’t approve.

    Years ago, I used my own version of the Serenity Prayer as a .sig file on Usenet. First three parts were the usual form, and then my addendum: “Oh, and a pony”. Some guy showed it to his kid and got the reaction “I don’t think he gets it”.

    I wouldn’t have expected Rat to pray at all, but this is the prayer I would expect from a praying Rat. Goat is overly judgemental for a cartoon character, but I can appreciate his sentiment. Rat is sooooo bad….

    It’s good to try to change the things we cannot accept. There are many unacceptable things that need changing—and don’t change because good people do nothing.

    That would cover the first paragraph of the prayer.
