Did anyone bother to call 911?
Bob’s a goner.
I can’t be the only one that keeps unknown keys around – thinking that I’ll find the lock for it someday.
No rush, Pig. Unless Bob’s a world-record breath-holder, it’s already too late.
Pig sure is sloppy.
Pig should also think about this—mud spelled backwards is……
Am I the only one who thought this was going to end in an aneurysm-triggering pun?
Hoarding= Lethal Fire Trap !!
The problem with being a pack-rat is that every once in a blue moon, you actually use one of the 10,000 things you’ve stored away. This is then used as justification for the behavior. I always try to remind myself not to use $10 worth of storage space on a 10-cent item.
I’m not a hoarder, but I’ve always had a tendency to “squirrel” things away that I might want to use or need some day. Tools are my weakness, but if I found a scuba gear and a raccoon trap while dump picking, they’d have a new home.
pig is related to my wife!!!!!
Now I have to hope my wife doesn’t read this comic today, she’s the ultimate save for later.
I’m basically pig. But I gave up trying to explain to my wife why I keep perfectly good items because I may need them some day.
I am trying to give up on attachment, though.
Let him fry. He insulted your horse
It never fails…
Bob is practicing his Houdini routine again, the racoon is part of the act.
I’m just trying to wrap my head around the image of a pig scuba diving.
Biggest laugh of the day. Thanks Stephan.
I probably would keep everything, but my wife is “anti-packrat.”
hoarders have their reasons…
It seems that one spends the first 30 years of one’s life accumulating stuff and the last 30 trying to get rid of it.
We sold our home and bought a condo! I sold/gave away, basically ,what was in the garage and now, a year later, I have a long list of things that I need that are gone!
Call Red Green.Duck tape will fix anything :)
Thank you for today’s laugh Stephan Pastis I needed it.
Why in the world would anyone be such a….. such a…… what’s the word? Hoarder?
What is up with this stupid “Overview” gocomics.com? Are you trying to anger the readers?Turn it back to open to the full comic!
As is usually the case here; very funny! Now I can show this to my wife who wants to throw things away!
Don’t do this to me!
This makes complete sense.
Happy Easter, Mr. Pastis
Ugh, I thought something like this happened to me the other day. Thank goodness I was mistaken.
Everyone knows (or should know by now) that “Neighbor Bob” is a redshirt. I could not begin to count how many Neighbor Bob’s have died in this strip over the years. But this is an egregiously bizarre Final Exit, just to make Pig regret doing something that actually in any Normal Universe would be a Good Thing!
I accuse Cartoon-Boy of Pig-Shaming!
’Fess up folks! How many of you, seeing the rather lengthy set-up, were expecting a Pastis pun? (I know I was)
reminds me of Hoarders
Ah – the season after I finally packed up and gave away all my ugly Christmas sweaters from the 90’s, it became a THING. I blame someone finding my sweaters in a thrift store for starting the trend . . .
A good shotgun should take care of the raccoon problem
Okay I am in the middle of a move. I have had to sneak stuff to the dumpster so my husband
Always keep everything, no matter how useless!
