Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for March 31, 2013
Pig: Hey guys, whatcha up to? Goat: We're going to a costume party. I'm the writer of 'The Iliad' and 'The Odyssey'. Rat: And I'm a baseball player. Pig: Oooooh. That sounds great. Rat: No, the great part is that the best costume wins a cash prize. Pig: Really? Goat: Yeah, but the rules are that we have to stay in character the whole night, so if you don't mind, talk to us like we're the real guys. Pig: Oh. I'm sorry...well, uh. Go out and write another great book, sir! Goat: Thank you. Rat: What about me? Pig: Oh, right, uh...go out and hit a homer! *CRACK* Goat: What just happened? Pig: I don't know. Rat: Blame the pig.
