    Well, umpires can be evil if they’re unreasoning saying the runner is out or safe and then they take you out of the game.

    Well, I’m not the award winning professional cartoonist here. But in the third panel, I’d have had Pig say, “I vant to drink you blood.” Goat’s response writes itself. Pig’s last speech balloon would stay the same.

    There was once an umpire so brutal even his wife and children would not go near him. When dad wanted his son to sit on his knee to pose for a photo, the kid ran away.

    Moral of the story: The son never sets on the brutish umpire.

    When Gene Mauch was managing the Phillies when they were terrible he came out to argue a call in a game where they were getting hammered. The ump listened to him and then said, “Gene, I know what you’re trying to do; you’re trying to get thrown out of the game. Well if I gotta umpire this sh!t, you gotta watch it. Now get back in the dugout.”

    “Are umpires as evil?” Well, it depends on whether your team lost or not.

    Sure. Umpires are as evil as Darth Vader. It should go without saying, though it doesn’t….

    Nice costume, you blind Pig!
