Pearls Before Swine by Stephan Pastis for March 01, 2015
Pig: Hey, Willy. What are you doing? Willy: Memorizing history. It takes forever, but I have to do it. We have a test. Pig: How come you have to know history? Willy: I guess so that when we're older, we'll know things. Pig: Like what? Willy: Like who wrote the declaration of Independence and where Napoleon died and when man first walked on the moon. Rat: Jefferson. St. Helena. 1969. It's called 'Google.' Willy: Is school just torture? Pig: Yes, but torture builds character. Rat: I guess technically, I know everything.
