    Would have thought something else than her dying from just saying “passed”.

    My state wild pigs are an invasive species. Don’t even need a license. Pig care to swing by? Don’t worry that giant mound of marinade, the knives, or empty freezer space. Of course your safe here.

    The shotgun? I thought you might want to go skeet shooting.

    I am fascinated with imaginings of Pig’s mom, dad, and new-driver grandmother. Will we ever meet them? What do they think of their son/grandson? Or are they as “innocent” as he is? FAMILY REUNION!

    The last pig I saw driving was stopped for having his tail light out and was told to “FIX IT!”

    ….unless one is from the South, where almost every utterance is shortened or abbreviated, we say ‘passed’ with only one meaning. Check out the video posted by the hilarous Jeanne Robertson, a former Miss North Carolina, doing a stand up routine which illustrates this point.

    Loved this strip. I hate the euphemisms that are used instead of just saying someone died. Death is part of life. Trying to muddle language never helps anyone.

    That could be good news or bad news, depending on the results of releasing Grandma on an unsuspecting world.

    I was thinking more in the lines of Grandma passed gas. Seems more plausible

    Reminds me of Kevin James’ phone number rhythm routine: > Five five five… six……. teen forty-one. >> Dude! I already wrote the six! I made the dash too close, I can’t shimmy the one in there now!

    ‘Corporal Nobbs is sick, sir,’ ‘Oh, I know that.’ ‘I mean off sick, sir.’ ‘Not his granny’s funeral this time?‘ ’Nossir.’ ‘How many’s he had this year, by the way?‘ ’Seven, sir.’ ‘Very odd family, the Nobbses.’ ‘Yessir.’

    Excerpt from Vicar of Dibley a day after Owen the dirty farmer french kissed the vicar:


    Owen: Is this a filling from your tooth?Vicar: Yes, thank you.(Owen hands it over): I’d have returned it sooner, but I only just passed it.

    If that Pig isn’t careful he could find himself orphaned.
