    It would’ve been better if Rat died from radiation poisoning.

    Actually, this story line could explain why all the humans in their world have fingers for noses.

    This sounds more like Rat writing the story than Pastis.

    I once made a joke about Fallout: Pearls Before Swine… it seems disturbingly accurate.

    Rat was profound from the start… and very shortly thereafter, he was profane.

    After the next nuclear war, Pig. And at the rate we’re going, it doesn’t look like that’s too far off.

    Pig will get to be profound as soon as a pro finds him.

    “It would’ve been better if Rat died from radiation poisoning.”


    If it was Amesworth Radiation, he would turn to dust.

    When Bikini island, which was blowed up by an H-bomb test, was inspected years later, there were rats alive.

    Wonder if this “origin story” explains where the crocs got their non-intelligence

    I guess we should be grateful. Came within an inch of having a cockroach character in the strip.

    There was a story I read once about aliens examining the post nuclear ruins of a dead Earth. They had deciphered the writing of the Earth people and noted with interest that the Earthlings believed that they were successors to a previous, greater civilization of a different kind of being. It turned out that the civilization they were studying had been created by Rats, after the human beings had destroyed themselves. I don’t recall if there was anything about cockroaches, but at any rate, they apparently hadn’t succeeded in picking up the torch from the Rats.

    I wonder if any lawyers came up from the rubble like rat did?

    I would never bet against rat… and Pig you are already profound just in your own Pig way.

    I thought rat hated people, having a lot of them gone or dead, you’d think he’d say “This rules”

    I’m waiting for the backstory on LGD.

    The EndTown cartoon makes all of this (so far) a bit lame.

    Well, Pig, since it seems to be a radioactivity-induced reaction (like Spider-Man, of course), maybe we could drop an atom bomb on you. Is that what you’d like, Pig?
