Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for January 25, 2015
Pastis: Hello? John Glynn: Hi, Stephan, it's the head of your comic strip syndicate, John Glynn. Really is the head of my syndicate. Listen, our goal at the syndicate is not to upset anyone, and some of your strips have been over-the-top lately. Pastis: They have? John Glynn: Yes. Inappropriate language, violence, mockery. No one likes mockery. Pastis: I see. John Glynn: So clean it up, or you'll get another call form me, and it won't be as pleasant as this one. Pastis: I understand. John Glynn: Good. I appreciate your seeing the company's point of view on this. Pastis: You bet, Mr. Glynn. John Glynn: You're gonna get me back by depicting me in an unflattering manner, aren't you? Pastis: Nooooooo... John Glynn: I hate you, Pastis.
