Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for July 08, 2012
Pig: What are you doing, Goat? Goat: I'm putting together a book of famous waterways, but I'm having trouble getting good shots of the Bering Strait. Rat: No one has any good photos? Goat: Well, this one photo-collecting geek has offered to email me some, but they're all gifs, and I like jpgs. Pig: What are those? Goat: They're just different ways to compress images on the web. I like the color in jpgs better, so I want to be careful to not use any gifs. Pig: I guess that's why you hear the warning. Goat: What warning? Pig: Beware of geeks' bering gifs. Rat: It had to be done. "Pastis 1968-2012 Stabbed with his own drawing pen"
