Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for January 08, 2012
Rat: What are you supposed to be? Pig: Vito Corleone. I'm going to a mob costume party. Rat: A mob costume party? Pig: Yeah. And this is a statue of Jimmy Hoffa. Guard Duck made it for me. I bring one every year. Rat: What for? Pig: At the end of the party, the mobsters blow it up. There's a little fuse in his head. But I think we need to change the design. Goat: Why is that? Pig: Because people are always re-doing the fuse to make it shorter. That way it blows up right when they light it. Goat: But that's not safe. Pig: I know. That's why I'm changing it. Goat: What are you gonna do? Pig: I'm gonna make them a Hoffa they can't re-fuse.
