Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for November 23, 2011
Rat: What are you reading, Goat? Goat: Chemistry. This chapter explains how each element has valence electrons, which are what determine how easy or hard it is for one element to mix with another. Rat: Sounds boring. Hey, did you get this invite to Pig's party on Friday? He wants us to R.S.V.P. if we're not going, which I don't think I am. Goat: Yeah... I don't want to go either. But I don't know what to tell him. What are you gonna say? Message: My valence electrons do not like your valence electrons.
