Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for November 15, 2005
"'Pearls Before Swine' creator, Stephan Pastis, is taking today off to spend time with his wife at home. Creative control of today's strip has been passed to Rat, who has promised said creator that he will avoid any and all offensive material that could trigger reader outrage. We join the strip in progress." "What are you doing, Rat?" "I'm going to throw this midget off the pier." "WHAT?! Why?" "To see if I can get a little more distance than I did with the last one." Meanwhile, at the home of Stephan Pastis... "Honey, why are angry short people holding signs on our lawn?"
