You’d think Goat would know better by now.
Forty million minutes?! And I waste approximately 40 minutes writing GoComics commentary.
40 million minutes is about 75 years. Will you get there Rat?
I think that a person must be sensitive to appreciate poetry, Rat is definitely not someone sensitive.
Goat is your fault, you know very well how is Rat.
Wasted time? Imagine watching 73 episodes of Game of Thrones only to find out that you hated the ending.
“The Tay Bridge Disaster” has a lot better chance on becoming a Pulitzer than Congress passing a bi-partisan bill.
Rat should stick to limericks. Quick and easy poetry.
There once was a rat named Rat
Who never avoided a spat
When Steph made him punny
And he thought it’s not funny
He brought out his baseball bat.
Well, at least the colors are pretty.
Unless there’s some back story where Rat was forced to do this, I have to think that he showed up just to complain. If you know you’re not likely to enjoy something, then politely turn down the invitation. Or rudely turn down the invitation, if you’re Rat.
It occurs to me that Rat’s speech balloon in panel two would make a great piece of blank verse. Sort of an Ogden Nash meets Piet Hein thing.
Rat would only show up if he were promised free beer.
Never wasted when reading PBS.
Rat is not a human, why does he care about Marcie’s time?
So! Now we know what Marcie (Peanuts) as an adult looks like? A Pastis nod to the Mystro?
Would expect no less from Rat ! ……. Croc Power ! Larry if Woo-man leave always have BEER ;-)
Only one of you is a human.
Rats don’t live 76 years.
Rat went to Paris’s house because he thought “book club” was a place where people make off-track bets! AND, Rat was gonna play a Daily Double of “Poison Ivy” & “Strawberry Rash”, but they were both scratched!
Don’t they usually drink at those book clubs? It isn’t entirely a waste.
Yikes – much better off staying home and watching reality TV. And drinking beer.
I’ve often watched a movie or TV show and wished I could have all those minutes of my life back.
More to the point, it was sixty needlessly alcohol free minutes!
There’s no reforming RAT! He is who he is…..
I’m surprised there’s only one woman in the book club
A rat after my own heart…
Hey, I liked most of the ending. Just thought the writing was not up to their previous standards.
And I not only guessed who killed the Night King, I got the weapon!
I enjoy my graphic novel club.
For those who never watched Game of Thrones at all (which includes me… we are the blessed)… do weep for us who spent six years on LOST. Y’know, the title on that one should have given us a big clue from the start…
I guess with books and movies its the skill of the story teller. if its well told you get your enjoyment whether you agree with ending of not. kind of journey vs destination.
“pose”, not “posit”.
Gotta say I’m with Rat here.
Who in their right mind would invite Rat to any club or public place.
I think we’ve all sat through meetings/classes/events like this.
the mere mention of GOT brings out all the old farts who are so, so proud of what they haven’t watched (and falling over themselves to boast about it here)…
I read somewhere that most animals live about one billion heartbeats. Except humans (and chickens) who get about double that. Asimov, maybe — it sounds like the kind of thing he’d have done.
I think that I have never shat a poem ugly as a rat.
So, Rat, why did you attend the Book Club, anyway? Are they offering free wine and cheese?
Rat is a sad sap. Characters like him only work if you do them well – and funny.
