    With Rat around, Stephan will never suffer from over-confidence… or any confidence.

    I notice they didn’t invite you to speak, Rat.

    There’s a certain class of people trying to go to Washington right now. Not one you should associate with.Oops. The drinking game begins.

    Rat’s just jealous because NOBODY has ever wanted to buy any of his books. And he’s still stinging from his failed Dickie the Cockroach book signing. Hey Pearls and Foxtrot are way more popular than Dickie the Cockroach will ever be. By the way Rat, which way to the restroom?

    Actually, they invited Cartoon-boy to say a single line: “this way to your seat, sir”

    if a picture (cartoon strip substitute) is worth a thousand words than pastis has written some of the longest books around that were not only readable but produce several chuckles with wryly puns twists and turns. so based on this assumption pastis is a novelist extraordinaire that should be able to wow those in dc – especially the too many other ‘lawyers’ who reside there who continue to frustrate many people with their pig or rat type intelligence.

    A great event that once was held outdoors on the “Mall” area between the Washington Monument and the Capitol building. Now held indoors, it features approximately 175 authors, illustrators and poets. You can find more information at:

    Charles Schulz used to like to joke that he wasn’t a good enough writer to be a writer and he wasn’t a good enough artist to be an artist, so he became a cartoonist. (Of course, he was one of the 20th century’s BEST writers!)

    Maybe Stephan could talk about why he decided to banish Zebra from the strip……….

    Rat’s acerbic put-downs are expected. But Pig’s comment in panel 3 is devastating. Of course, such remarks are applied even more to lawyers, so Cartoon-Boy is a double loser among the speakers…. Congratulations, Cartoon-Boy!

    Is this strip really on fifty shades of writers? Or just on ghostwriters?

    Maybe LGD killed the first 50 choices just to see Steph speak in public.
