    I would have thought Rat would’ve clobbered Pig instead.

    Site was down all around but now it’s back. You can always check ‘isitdownrightnow dot com’ which showed it was down. MEANWHILE: can someone explain the last panel here? Why did rat hit the grits? Why didn’t he hit pig, who made the pun?

    It’s a rare cartoonist who allows himself to be clobbered for the sake of his art. That pun was so bad that it was good.

    They’re obviously not from the South. First, you serve the grits hot. The leftovers you shape into a loaf and put in the fridge. For another meal, you take the grit loaf out, slice it and fry it in oil like a burger. Good eats!

    Grits get cold, they cement to the pan, & you need a sand-blaster to clean it off.
