    Another bad pun. I have to admit, I had to read the punchline a couple of times before I got it.

    I vote we euthanize ourselves. We’re the ones who are suffering.

    What do you think euthanize means? There’s a number of ways to do it.

    I’m poor and need new cash to afford all those fancy drinks; as a result I don’t sweat much; does that make me a “new cash mere sweater?”

    Seemed like kind of a long setup for a joke they could’ve done in three panels.

    Still made me groan / smile, though. How does Pastis do it, time after time?

    The thing I love most about this strip is when Pastis actually inserts himself into it to poke fun at his own bad jokes. I have never seen any other strip do that.

    I’m surprised that Rat didn’t resort to a Fur Chew after that line. But that would make him a rug rat, I guess…
