    Rat may not realize it but he just did a good thing.

    Right on! Social media, Facebook! Bah! Why care about what a bunch of people you’ve never even met before think?! I give Rat a thumbs up on this one.

    Rat can most times be a reprehensible jerk, but occasionally he spouts some ‘in your face’ beneficial philosophy.

    But if you did win that award, people might think you’re a dork!

    It’s a choice between please-all and f**k-all, I guess.

    Well, it kind of does exist. It’s how many people show up for your funeral but, of course, your not there receive the “award”.

    Pig: There are so many things I want to do with my life, but I don’t do them because I’m afraid I will go to jail.Rat: That’s smart, because at the end of your life you want to make sure to get the “clean criminal history” award.Rat: Oh wait. That doesn’t exist.

    Prisons are for those who are not deterred by shame.

    Don’t care what people think of me. I don’t need to grovel for approval.

    But please remember to always wear clean underwear without tears or holes, because if you get run over be a truck, you don’t want the undertakers to be whispering bad things about you.

    Stephan, I offer you what I believe may be one of the highest compliments a cartoonist can receive:

    This is going on my refrigerator.

    If you are going to be criticized for everything you do

    you might as well do as you like and be criticized for that.

    I am an elderly, American, upper middle class, white, Christian, politically conservative, heterosexual, male. And I am NOT ashamed of any part of that demographic profile. There. I’ve said it.

    One sure sign that you haven’t done anything worth mentioning is that no one got upset that you had done it.

    A rewrite chorus of Bon Jovi’s “It’s My Life” with Pig in mind. Goes something like this: “It’s my life, it’s now or never, but I am not considered clever, I just want some good results, cause it’s my life. I can’t seem to work things out, cause I don’t have any clout, but I am somewhat happy I’m alive, it’s my life. Still, my life is like an open sewer, nothing around here is getting any newer, and, I, I just want to—um— to eat some more cheese, cause it tastes real good -AND- my life ain’t turning out the way it should, I think I should just eat while I’m alive, so it’s my life; hey— I just want to say—”What!" my friends are hopeless anyway, but, please don’t tell my sister or my wife, cause, well, it’s my life.

    But, yeah, Pig is way too much a Pollyanna….
