    10 times a day means you… may want to get something examined.

    Get Fuzzy Version:

    Satchel Pooch: Every time I go to the bathroom alone, I walk 37 feet. And I go to the bathroom 10 times a day.

    Rob Wilco: So?

    Satchel: So over the course of a year that’s 138,335 feet, which works out to over 26 miles.

    Rob: Why are you telling me all this?

    Satchel: Because I’ve completed my first marathon!

    Rob: I don’t think that counts.

    Satchel: It just takes discipline.

    Pig has only been going to the bathroom for the last year? What about all the years prior to that?

    If pig had a speedy roommate, he would never get to the bathroom first.

    Did the math. He pulls up about 100 feet short. Heartbreaking.

    Pastis-king of the couch potatoes. Is he counting using the toilet as squats?;)

    If discipline = beer, then Pig’s got it right.

    He didn’t say what he was doing in the bathroom – maybe combing his hair?

    And hordes of adoring fans lining the route to his bathroom, handing out toilet paper in support.

    Unfortunately for pig, a marathon is not just 26 miles. Since 1908, the Olympic marathon [and nearly every other foot race in the world that is marketed as “a marathon”] is defined as 26 miles, 385 yards. And that is 138,435 feet. So pig’s total of 138, 335 is exactly 100 feet short of a marathon. Maybe he forgot to tell goat about that colonoscopy prep day. For the history of the marathon distance see https://www.nytimes.com/2012/04/21/sports/the-marathons-accidental-route-to-26-miles-385-yards.html

    Pig bladders, an apt amount of goes.

    When you’re outside, it’s much further to your bathroom…

    Isn’t Pig supposed to be dumb? How can he do math? This comic is so fake.

    Throw in all the trips to the fridge and the number of marathons really add up!

    And, over the course of a year, Pig has cleaned and jerked over 300 pounds of cans of beer!

    10 times a day is disturbing enough… and you walk 37.9 feet? You either have a huge home or you go by way of Cuba to the bathroom

    Oh? But look at your time, Pig! Definitely not even in the top 5000 marathoners….
