Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for September 06, 2014
Goat: Can I help you? Bill: Yeah, just wanted to introduce myself... I'm Bill, your new neighbor. Pig: Why are you facing the other way? Bill: I'm a historian. We look backwards. Pig: Careful crossing the street. Bill: Thanks. I'll process that comment in ten years.

And if I should survive crossing the street, I will record that my philosophy successfully navigated a difficult time, thus proving its superiority.Excelsior!

He once had a date with a psychic but it didn’t work out. They never could see eye to eye.

And doesn’t Bill know that he’s AN historian? Task.

Historically, we know from exhaustive research of archival court records, that in early 21st century societies there was a very high casualty rate among the not-watching-where-going segments of the urban population.

Today most Americans just say what sounds right to them and don’t care in the least what English teachers told them in the third grade.

Sad to see how many people don’t know the difference between aspirated and unaspirated. Grammar Police have their work cut out for them!Professional historians are usually not so backwards as Bill. He’s probably just playing the part in a comic strip for the glory/fame/money….

Does anybody know what offense riotta rigotta might have committed? He appears to have been banned – I just looked at yesterday’s board and I’ve got a reply to him there, left orphaned. Anyway, if you see this – Hi, riotta! We’ll see you when we see you. Hope it’s soon.

It was in an old Kraft commercial I first heard the seasoning referred to as a “nurb.”

So has he actually been living there for ten years?

If he only looks backward up to the point where he takes 10 years to process something a person says to him, did it also take a lot time for him to introduce himself as a new neighbor? Did that take multiple years?
