Help Cynical Me Find Happiness! A very special Pearls Before Swine Puzzle by Rat Stephan says, "No roads lead there, do they?" Rat says, "Hey. I said I was cynical." Pig says, "I will find a way!!"
Actually, there’s no requirement that you can’t cross the lines or have to start where Rat is or stay within 2 dimensions (although all 3 are implied). So what Rat’s really saying is that happiness requires thinking outside the box.
