Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for May 29, 2011
Mr. Stevie Sheep was tired of sheepdom. So when his flock ate grass, Mr. Stevie ate berries. And when his flock went, "Baaaaa," Mr. Stevie went, "Waaaaa." And when his flock went into the meadow, Mr. Stevie went into the woods. Where he could go "Waaaa" to his heart's content. Which, coincidentally, is the same sound made by an injured or otherwise vulnerable sheep. Which is how he met Mr. Wolf. Zebra says, "This is your inspirational 'Be Yourself' book??" Rat says, "So, kids, be yourself, but make sure you don't sound like a dying sheep." Pig says, "I will never ever be myself!"
