    NPR will probably post this on their web page; they like to exploit—err, feature Heroes during Pledge Periods…. Heroic Pig saves our Ira Glass from fiery death! (Mr. Glass is still recovering from a severe concussion, but we’re sure he would agree.) Donate Now!

    Heh. I wonder what Mr Pastis has against him? (I’m in Britain, so it’s not like I know.)

    It would have been much less painful if the cook had just smothered the fire with a lid.

    Pastis and his eternal loveable lame puns… I’d die without having one at least once a week.

    Why would Pig do that? The cook was yelling “Fire!”, not “Emergency!”.

    @ ladyfingers86 . . . my vote is that animated gifs are irritating. Stop it.

    Did Pig break the glasses? They seem intact-ish to me.

    I am so sorry this strip has to be viewed on Gocomics. The lack of a zoom feature for the Sunday strip in inexcusable. Stephan puts in too much detaIl for it to show up unless it is magnified. I hope I can find another place to look at this strip. Gocomics has ruined it for me.

    @Philip Beckman and others like me who could use some magnification: Simply tap the plus sign key a few times while holding down the Ctrl key. The minus key does the opposite.

    For tiny keyboards with no dedicated plus sign key you will need to use the shift to get a plus sign.

    Good thing today’s guest wasn’t “Mr. Glass,” the brittle-boned man from Unbreakable; that almost wouldn’t be funny.


    I can’t tell if someone already referred to this movie or not, because I can’t load the rest of the comments.

    Hey, I LIKE the animations, at least the ones that fit in the frame. There are a few that don’t work in the small space, like I can’t tell what Ladyfinger’s’ pup is doing, but I like Nabuquduriuzhur’s.
