Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for June 16, 2013
Pig: What happened to you, Steph? Stephan: I went to dinner in San Francisco with some people from my comic strip syndicate and our crazy cabbie drove 85 mph through the broadway tunnel.* "*A true story" Pig: Oh my goodness...what was going through your mind? Rat: I'll tell you what was going through his mind...that it was the Princess Diana situation all over again. And he would be immortalized just like her. Pig: What?? Don't be silly, Rat. Rat: Oh, I won't. But I will read these 'Candle In the Wind" lyrics I found on his notepad. 'Goodbye, Stephan P. Though I never knew you at all you had the grace to hold your pen while 'toonists 'round you scrawled... They scrawled all of their dumb gags and they wished that they had your brain those fatties need a treadmill and they wish they had your frame...' Stephan: If you need me, I'll be hiding under a rock. Rat: Should I hold the queen's calls? Pig: Ooh! Ooh! Can I talk to her??
