Rat: What are you doing, Victor the Vegan?
Victor: Foraging the forest floor for nuts and berries, living as nature intended, instead of harming other creatures.
Rat: And the bear wasn't a vegan.
Victor the Vegan needed to make himself big.
I am not going to comment on this because it will offend any vegans reading this.
He could have tried foraging along the perimeter of Zebra’s house. I’m sure the crocs would have welcomed him.On the other hand, probably even the late Victor could have handled the crocs.
Too bad Victor wasn’t smarter than the average bear.
Most brown and black bears are vegans; although most will turn over rocks to eat moths. Maybe Victor had berry nut breath?
Brown and black bears are foragers, not vegans. Like most mid-size mammals, they are designed to work best on an omnivorous diet. Thus their delightful habit of gorging on fish when they can easily get them, to the point where they can barely crawl out of the stream.
The bear still ate nuts, though.
The bear was merely living as nature intended.
If you are eating a diet that nature intended humans to eat, then you are not a vegan. Humans are omnivores,
Not a vegan or even a vegetarian, but I’m always bemused by all the animosity toward them. I know a few who are nice people, keep it low key, don’t forage in the woods (though they do garden), and are some of the best cooks I’ve ever met.
Can this be the end of Victor the Vegan?This is too easy a triumph for Jef the Cyclist!Besides, eating Victor might make Bear sick to his stomach, and that would be cruelty to animals, Cartoon-Boy!
It reminds me of the Futurama episode “The Problem With Popplers”..“Animals eat other animals. It’s nature.”“No it isn’t. We taught a lion to eat tofu.”The view pans to a pale, emaciated, trembling lion that can barely manage a wheezing cough when it tries to roar.

It seems we’re heading for a showdown between Pastis and Wiley. Cue Spaghetti-Western music.
Hahahahahaha! Idiot vegans! Love it!!!!!
I would have chosen the word “evangelists”, but arrogant elitists will work equally well.
I am not an arrogant elitist, I just feel better, physically and mentally, not eating animals or dairy. What does floor me is the processed sugary food diet that many of my friends and family still follow and feed to their kids. And I do speak out about it.
If you go out in the woods today you better be in disguise. ‘Cause every bear that ever there was is gathered there together because today’s the day the teddy bears have their picnic.
Speaks volumes about him
BETA:Bears Eating Tasty Animals
two Bears were eating a Hunter and one asks the other how ihe was doing… and he says ‘having a ball; and the other replys,… ’your eating too fast!’
I don’t actually have any problem with vegans, as long as they don’t have a problem with me. That said, like any “fringe” group, there are some who just can’t leave anyone else to their own choices. Thus, that classic vegan joke:
How can you tell a vegan? You don’t have to, they’ll tell you.
Your reference to the Pastis cameo reminded me of the Sunday “Marmaduke” strip, where the writer/artist, Brad Anderson, put himself in it. We commenters nosed around and found out that he is over ninety! Now, that’s impressive! I don’t normally follow his strip, but now respect him more.
Rat didn’t need to run faster than the bear. Rat can run faster than Victor the Vegan!
One perceives that Victor will have as many lives as Larry.
Bears are omnivores. And vegans qualify on that point.
The Argyle Sweater has Pastis in it today
Pastis has run through all his Vegan jokes?Look out for that bus, Jef the Cyclist!
Bravo, Mr. P., grrrreat way to get rid of an annoying character!
Hey Stephan! I loved Scott Hilburn’s strip with you in it today.
Love “The Argyle Sweater” today!
I have nothing against vegans when they have nothing against me…But irony is delicious.
If the bear does what bears do in the woods, Victor will be back.
You don’t say?
P.E.T.A. = People Eating Tasty Animals.
Soon Victor shall be food for plants thus completing the circle of life.
Bears don’t eat people. Get an education, Stephan.
Today’s “The Argyle Sweater” comic strip:
As Jim Croce said in "Hard Time Losin’ Man’ “Sometimes You Eat The Bear And Sometimes The Bear Eats You”.
Pig….“And no longer hungry. The Circle of Life.”
Too bad no one told him “Bear right”.
is it just me or does that bear look like total from the timmy failure books? Someone might be using a copy paste tool here lol.
Okay, fine, I’ll go out and say it, I think Vegans are hypocrites because they claim to have the moral high ground by not eating animal products. Well guess what, you’re still eating a living thing, plants are living things too you hypocrites!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go hide from the Vegans.
See my above comment.
He’s extremely harmful. Too bad the bear didn’t rid of of that hypocrite.
Is this really the end of Victor the Vegan?
