    Who knew Pig could write like that? I thought he could barely read.

    _Le Cochon, he looks so French! He is l’artiste, no doubt! Mais, M. Bean Dip? I think not!

    Names are easy. Finishing a manuscript, finding an agent and getting published is hard.

    Keno, I had the same thought.Was Juliet the little side dish that distracted the rotten Dip?That’s really cheesy.

    And I think it was GoodQuestion who suggested the name Frito or Frita the other day.

    Wow, Pig — with the exception of “Bean Dip”, that was really good writing.

    Some said that Camille’s great love of Bean Dip was but a passing thing, yet it could not be denied that she now had a certain air about her.

    i am a romance writer and think this strip is hilarious. Names ARE hard. I like this so well I want to include it in my blog on that subject (names being hard, that is, not Bean Dip) at and hope its okay with you. Again, very funny.

    Ha. This one reminds me of a semi-classic “Garfield” comic ….

    You know, the rhythm and sound of our hero’s name makes me think of “Wuthering Heights” for same reason. The fact that the hero is a Dip doesn’t detract from the similarity.

    The worst thing for a pig is to be disgruntled.

    He could be “M. Haricot Trempette” . . . in French . . .

    The line about going off to the war gives a whole new meaning to shipping “bullets and beans” to the front.

    Maybe the antagonist is “Tracer Bullet”? Or is he more of a Dum dum?

    How about M. le dip du bean?

    And don’t forget bathos… the opposite of pathos… that is, a sustained period of sorrow, followed by an abrupt descent to ridicule! M. le bathos?
