    I’m glad Rat and Pig found for what they were looking, because You Can’t Always Get What You Want.

    Did anyone else see that a pun was coming from the first panel?

    that pun hurts almost as much as Pastis’ will be after getting kicked by that horse.

    You should’ve used the other horsie trick, Rat. The one with two, or four horses, each facing a different direction.

    This is my 19th Nervous Breakdown; I am Shattered, and Mr. Pastis is Out of Time, and I Don’t Know Why. But I have no more Sympathy for the Devil, cause it is a Sad Day for the Respectable Street Fighting Man (me) who is 2000 Light Years from Home In Another Land, with the Honky Tonk Women Fortune Teller, Sweet Black Angel, and Respectable Little Queenie —named Ruby Tuesday, Carol, and Angie, whose only demands are “Gimmie Shelter” and “Live with Me”, cause they still Ain’t too Proud to Beg, since they are the Happy Beast of Burden and Mother’s Little Helper. But Come On, cause Time is on My Side as It’s All Over Now, or it should be. What a Shame, as I hope it is The Last Time Mr. Pastis will Play with Fire on Route 66. So Mr. Pastis, I tell you one last time, You Better Move On Before You Paint It Black, and Get Off of My Cloud or I will relocate you Under the Boardwalk, since (I Can’t Get No) Satisfaction with my Heart of Stone over this Hot Stuff.

    Well, this one was pretty puny, but I’ll cut him some slack after Rat’s “…best thing that ever happened to me” and Pig’s essay on the meaning of life.

    But there is a limit!

    When the setup as tortured as this, the result is punishing. I once had a coworker who could frequently insert a pun in a short, on-topic comment in a staff meeting or other discussion. Usually, one or two people would laugh immediately, followed by delayed laughs and groans as I struggled to figure out what I missed. To me, those were what a pun should be and how a pun should work.

    I’m rooting for the wild horses. Take him to “Pun Land” and leave him there!

    I enjoy toon boy’s stuff. We could all see the setup coming but this was great – he hit the basement and kept digging on this one.

    Even if I didn’t enjoy it (I love Rat – he’s the personification of a lot of what I think – and would do if I wouldn’t get arrested – Rat is Everyman.) I’d still read it – if only out of morbid curiosity.

    It’s almost like walking through a mine field, you know the puns are there but the minute you forget about them, BOOM! I love them.

    I Can’t Get No Satisfaction from all these puns—both in the strip and in the comments.

    Seriously … you have to wonder how Pastis comes up with all these. It takes thinking, like it or not.

    I doubt Pastis will do a tribute to Mort walker, sadly.
