Next time, take the train.
On this occasion, Stephan Pastis is an escape artist.
Just goes to show you can’t run from your troubles….
It will be even more difficult to escape when that “yuge wall” is up.
Damn my fear of heights.
I climbed to the top of the building to throw myself off, but by the time I arrived at the top, there was nowhere left to fall. All the good spots had been taken.
Darn you, cowards. Come down and fight!
Rats are the first to leave a sinking ship, but you too, Pig?
The world has always been too nuts. Now come down, ya bunch of nuts.
If they’re trying to escape the craziness of the Earth, shouldn’t they be leaving in rocket ships?
Make sure you take the Amtrak, especially if you prefer injury or death. I think they’re gonna rename it …………………………… Damtrak.
Should have packed a pea shooter, to open up some room in the sky.
Bug out balloons?
They should’ve just emailed Peter Pan
Is this what the Rapture looks like?
Once again Stephan, you seem to “hit the nail on the head” about what life has become; why people want to run and hide, run away, get away and return to calmer, more meaningful times. After reading your strip for several years? Sensing what you’ve gone through personally? I can certainly understand your closeness to reality here…Thx. for placing it all in proper context…Take care.
I think it’s a bit cold for Rat and Pig to abandon Goat. Now, they’ll never have Paris.
I wish I was the spaceman sitting on the Tesla Roadster floating out there….
Where’s the Sphere-O’-Splendid Isolation when you need it most?
It’s rather ironic, actually. With the talk of immigration reform, I am beginning to think it’s not about keeping people out anymore, but about keeping us in! As Prince John remarked in “The Adventures of Robin Hood” (Warner Bros., 1938), “. . .else there won’t be enough to till OUR land or pay OUR tax.”
I would hate to travel in a hot air balloon. I’m terrified of heights and looking down make my legs turn to jelly. Can’t even cope very well on escalators. Strangely enough I’m OK on the “down” escalators.
Up, up, and away, in my beautiful balloon!
Well, anyway, up, up.
Or maybe just “up.”
It’s the Herd Mentality again….
Everyone’s escaping except Goat, who would end up being the only person left in the world! Poor lonely Goat..
Yo. Welcome to 2020.
