    Unless it was Howard johnson’s, in which case you might want to get right over there.

    That should’ve been a tough decision for Rat, people you don’t like vs free food.

    Next time, Rat, “we’re busy” is the more polite thing to say.

    Uh oh Rat, now you’ve done it!The Johnsons will file a federal lawsuit claiming that the only reason you did it is because of ________________ (enter any “ism” you like ).

    Pig has such a concerned look in the first panel.

    Are Rat and Pig dating? Pig could go by himself if he wanted, or come up with his own excuse.

    Since Rat and Pig share a house, as housemates, I presume the Johnsons issued them a joint invitation (hence “we”). Rat’s response is entirely appropriate, as long as both he and Pig never want to see the Johnsons again….

    It’s best to be direct. And see, how they never have to hear from those people again. Win/win!

    I’m sure they don’t like you either, Rat.

    They might have only invited you so they could poison your food.

    Fine, have it your way. I will just call the police and accuse you of a hate crime. Even if you aren’t guilty, you will be punished in some form, for the accusation is enough..That is one of the costs of chaos.

    Calling Rat cynical is an understatement!
