    I don’t if I’m in luck or if I’m sad, but I never learned the periodic table of elements in high school.

    Sing along everybody!There’s Antimony Arsenic Aluminum Serenium and Hydrogen and Oxygen and Nitrogen Uranium….(Tom Lehrer’s “The Elements” song) I memorized it for 100 points of extra credit.

    Maybe it’s a calendar to track Pigita’s moods?

    Pig, tungsten is 3 weeks away. You have neon on Saturday . . . and you’ll be mostly inert.

    Pig isn’t reading it right.

    The weeks are longer than on a regular calendar….. and we don’t have names for so many days…. butBeryllium is quite clearly on a Monday….

    And I’d say Tungsten is definitely a Wednesday…. especially as it’s a “W”…

    Corzak is right…. Neon is Saturday… and Sodium is Sunday….then after Magnesium Monday this will be a surprisingly empty week!

    The following Thursday is Aluminum…. such a light workday you could go to the movies afterward.

    What happened to Goat’s use of grammer?

    “What do you got going on?”???

    He should have asked, “What do you have going on?” surely.

    Pig’s mistake was going to a school supply store to get his new calendar. He should have gone to a stationer’s, of course. Except that he might have misspelled it and got lost….

    We’re on to you now, Pastis. You bring in the crocs for one or two strips and then stick us with a week of rat, pig and goat ….

    Tungsten should really be Wednesday, since its symbol is W.

    The real problem with using the Periodic Calendar of the Elements is that about 75% of the elements are metals. A few of them are rather soft—some are quite dangerous (Sodium or Polonium)—but in general 2/3 of the month would be quite hard.
