    Style and so much more is meaningless once you’re gone.

    Hope the lemming strips are just about over.

    Oh no, I just had a horrifying thought. Rat’s “baby” is quadruplets, and their all going to turn out to be lemmings so these stupid lemming strips can continue.

    2 things. If you are going to commit mass suicide, don’t jump off a cliff. Statistically, there will be survivors. And before you go, paint “Fred Rules” on your chest so the medical examiner has something interesting to put in ye old morbid scrapbook.

    So I take it this means the Rat being pregnant storyline is going to continue for sometime?

    I believe that he’s actually referring to the fact that the idea of lemmings jumping off cliffs originated in the Disney nature film White Wilderness", which staged the scene. The film crew pushed the lemmings into the water themselves..

    If you are making Lemmingade you would squeeze them. A blender would make a Lemming smoothy.

    There’s always one wiseguy that says lemmings don’t jump in these strips. There, now that’s out of the way.

    If Fred did pay the pilot in advance, like eddie 6192 says, the pilot got there a tad too late.

    I can’t believe how long it’s been since we had more than a tiny token appearance by the crocs.

    It strikes me that those who comment that a certain comic strip is too boring, still take time to read the strip and comment :-p

    Looks like Pastis even thinks the Lemming strips are lame, and is running them on Saturdays in the hope that fewer people will see them. He likes to do that with lame strips.

    “Fred” is the “Bob” of the lemmings.
