But that doesn’t make the problems go away.
Neither doesn’t dwelling on them, unfortunately.
I think for once, going literal on metaphorical advice works.
A truthful talking head!
Now, all that bad stuff is happening AND you have hay fever.
Bloom County ?
Turned off the news readers several years ago in favor of print media. I am calmer and better informed. Your mileage may vary.
It’s a good advice. There are things that are beyond our reach and our concerns.
Dang! My daisies are still dormant.
Just go join Opus in the dandelion field.
Sounds like a plan.
daises can be toxic to many animals.
Please, “Don’t Eat the Daisies”
I’ve only followed half that advice (not watching the news). Maybe that makes me half smart?
Oh, Pig. These days are just too rough on you. Got room in the daisies for me?
He knows what life is about. Now if he would only play Super Mario
Sorry, I don’t get it. Is “to stand in the daisies” some English idiom?
Okay, I guess, as long as you aren’t pushing up the daisies!
Slowly, a python sneakily approaches Pig and eats him.
No need to touch your TV remote for WE control what you hear and see … Doom and Gloom forever ! As the Monty lads said …..Always Look On The Bright Side Of Life !
Ooooh the DRAMA! PIG takes everything so literally! Lol
If I turned off the news I still would get it because my wife always watches Colbert. (Conan for me!)
I turn on the news this morning. 49 dead at a shooting in two mosques in New Zealand. And so it goes.
But Pig isn’t smart . . .
This is either really good timing, or bad timing for this strip, depending on your point of view, considering what happened in New Zealand…
And yes, I know that it’s PURELY coincidental…
Wait for me, Pig!
And maybe Pig can pick the daisies like that little girl in LBJ’s infamous political ad.
D’ya wanna know what’s wrong with the world?
Everywhere there’s people with no flowers in their hair
Our daisies aren’t up yet. Our tulips and daffodils are barely up, but aren’t showing flower buds yet. We could go out and stand in the remaining (cruddy) snow, but it wouldn’t be quite the same as standing in the daisies.
Unplug the tv…start passing out the “binkees!”
The mass shooting in New Zealand was very sad to hear
There is a particularly nice bloom of desert wildflowers this year.
Pastis: I couldn’t have said it any better myself.
Please don’t eat the daisies.
The news is the same as it ever was. Only now we have all the 24/7 “news” aka Opinion networks who are in desperate need of something to fill air time
Thanks Stephan I think I’ll do just that. I hope you are too.
yep! cancelled newspaper, wont watch TV news and may listen to CBC radio news once in the day…….i figure if anything important happens that i need to know about, someone will knock on my door :-))
Pig does that as a matter of course.
Do you have any room for me in that patch Pig?
I think Pig just needs to turn off the Groundhog Day Channel.
California is having a major flower bloom, accompanied by butterflies.
Smart move, Pig! And don’t forget to “smell the roses,” too!
