    They will take Pigita down if she orders a pizza with pineapple.

    On the plus side, he certainly won’t have to worry about pregnancy or STDs tonight.

    He needs protection. That Pigita is a psycho!

    I wonder if Pig will have plenty of cash not just to pay for the date, but also for hired protection.

    I thought Pig and Pigita broke up? Didn’t last long….

    @ peggykb9 (three posts up?) This is an instance of Stephen Pastis having a lapse of memory. They’ve been getting shorter over the years. (The next thing you know, Rat’s Dad will show up.)

    Stay innocent and sweet as long as you can. Pig is called stupid quite often but of all of the characters, he really has it the best. Very little stress and he’s carefree. Well except for that despicable girlfriend he has.

    And besides, abstinence is the only sure protection….and makes the heard(sic) grow fonder.

    I flagged you for bullying. I hope the mods delete your post soon.

    You need not be the one to explain it to others who may not understand it. Let them ask their parents as well.

    Pig will blow it. He’ll see a Christmas display and ask Pigita to pull the train.

    Go easy on the lad (or lass), it’s good to see education in action.

    You’d think 4 bodyguards would be as effective at preventing piglets as a condom – unless they’re really discreet like the Secret Service.

    I guess Pig forgave Pigita over the whole pineapple pizza incident

    I was thinking pepper spray from potential muggers.

    Several weeks ago I wrote a comment here that said pigs don’t go to beaches. I was wrong. There is an island called Pig Beach. This link shows pigs swimming there:

    I was aware that many of the commenters at Big Nate were children. I didn’t know that there were children commenting at PBS as well.

    Ah, yes… I remember the days when saying “I never leave home without protection” meant you had a couple of those foil packs tucked into your wallet, rather than a .38 in your belt.


    Does that make me a Plugger?

    Arrgh! Pigita is a Vampire Lover. She will not stay dead!

    Get rid of her, Pig. Have your goons take her for a ride, out to a secluded spot in the woods. They should know what to do next….

    Bring back Sweet Fanny!

    Seriously? That means either your young or as innocent as Pig.
