You outnumber them, but they have better weapons.
The type of education system that gives the test first and the lesson after (if you survive)!
Two rabbits are chased into a hollow log by a pack of wolves. The one rabbit is scared and asks the other what they should do. The second says, wait a week and we’ll outnumber them.
“I don’t have to outrun those big cats…” (anyone?)
I feel this is a play off of Anti-Maskers. I have been wondering if these people are the same ones who believe the Earth is Flat, Believe there is Nothing Smaller than a Mustard Seed, and wander around with Tin Foil Hats. Only… Nice Young Men in White Uniforms do not come and take you away… instead a long black vehicle.
BTW – a ‘hearse’ went past me the other day. On the side were stickers that said, “Last Ride”.
Because it would be an awful lot like coming to a gunfight armed with a pocket knife. You might do a bit of damage…
The way of the world? The Magical Woods of Niceness it’s not.
The cats will explain everything.
This works for them. Too bad there isn’t a way to keep stupid people from breeding before they off themselves.
Let their sharp claws and powerful jaws with ripping sharp teeth explain it to you. You’ll be a fast learner, trust me.
I remember a video of an antelope that didn’t run! The lion kinda pawed at him but didn’t know what to do! As soon as the antelope bolted, the lion became a lion again.
And yet — somewhere in the deep history of Homo sapiens — imagine perhaps a small troop of slow-running three-foot-tall Australopithecus — someone did just that, and a group of photo-human beings stood their ground with timid courage holding rocks and sticks and instead of scattering to leave the slowest one to die, they faced down their first cat and won the field — and the savanna was forever changed.
And I’m not going to wear a mask for the same reason – there’s more people than viruses!!
“Okay, we’ll run, you don’t run, and we’ll outnumber them by a little less.”
Our teeth and toes aren’t sharp, our limbs are skinny, but we are quites fast
The one looking at the reader seems to be saying, Can you believe this guy? I feel the same way whenever I see Buttercup and TupPence. Makes me shudder to think of the possibilities.
Stay at home education?
Revisionist history. We have to teach our children the “right” kind of history.
I don’t know if it works with lions/gazelles but there are times in the US when you see deer fending off wolves. big aggressive bucks charging with their antlers down.
Common sense: the least common of all senses.
There’s always ONE..
This IS Wileyland, so I’m not going to complain about political comments in a cartoon, but to connect THIS cartoon with the wearing of masks and Trump is such a stretch that it cannot but show the seriousness of the TDS pandemic. Obviously the masks haven’t been able to ward THAT off.
I’ve wondered that too especially when just one bully can push everyone else around.
And you have horns. Just get into battle formation, and . . . . .
Because we only eat grass and they don’t.
Okay, the rest of the herd of runners is safe for at least one big cat meal.
Sorta like, “Just because doctors wear masks when they operate, doesn’t mean they work.”
Bison form a defensive circle to defend against predators as part of their herd mentality. Other herd animals scatter in a “everyone for themselves” defense. Human herds tend to choose poorly.
They must have gone to Trump U.
Because they can’t count. Bye!

You can always count on the trolls to come out of the woodwork on a Non Sequitur strip. Ugh.
Not unlike refusing to wear a mask and social distance, no?
Just once I would like to see a large herd of antelope put their heads down and charge a pride of lions. I’ll bet the lions would run.
Sometimes the solution to a problem is easier than it seems. In Atomic Robo today, Robo gave the homework assignment: "Resolve the problem of the conceptual flow of time between general relativity and quantum mechanics.
While this may seem a daunting assignment at first glance, if one gives it a moment of thought the answer becomes obvious:
Comparatively, discouraging a lion from eating you may be as simple as farting at the precisely correct moment. Or something.
“Explain guys, uh, guys!?”
They may be outnumbered, but they’re better equipped to fight… NOW RUN!!!
We need that in Congress.
This is what happens when you disarm the public. The predators win. No more gun control.
‘And explain why we have to wear masks.’
I herd you loud and clear.

Luncheon is served.
Seems perfectly logical to me …
