    Only in PBS: A pig complaining about the smell of Oreos that a crocodile wants.

    Maybe the penguins stunk because they hadn’t bathed in a while.

    Sorry, Crocs, Oreos are from Nabisco – if they had been Hostess, you would have a chance to bring them back!

    Why is it called “Pearls before Swine”? Doesn’t seem like a random choice for a title.

    Pastis explained at a book signing I attended that, in addition to being a Biblical quote, the idea is that Rat believes his wisdom is wasted on Pig—his “pearls before swine.”
