Most people are not the best at anything. Most are good at certain things. Focus on that, but it doesn’t have to be day and night.
Great idea! I’m good at procrastination, I’ll start practicing tomorrow.
Not really, Pig. Now you have to enter a lot of contests!
What if 2 people want to finish last?
Don’t be such a puerile perpetual pessimist, Pig.
Pig also makes a pretty good BLT.
Pig, excels at being a pig-in-a-blanket and is second to none. (and he does not need the cold frigid weather as an excuse to practice.)
Good advice. I want to be best at sleeping, and I plan to pursue it day and night.
That works until someone starts a “not finishing things” contest.
There are a lot of these strips devoted to Pig just giving up on himself. He really needs a @#&%^$ hug.
I challenge Pig to a drinking contest. I’ll let him finish last.
Just be the best you can be at something that you really want to do. If you can’t make a living at it, then also be the best you can be at something you’re willing to do.
With the current population of the world pushing 8 billion, there is no way to be better at something then everybody else and no way to know it if you did. There are simply too many somebody-elses.
I feel so bad for the little piggy.
Pig is representing the latest generations….over whelmed, no encouragement, no self esteem….parents are too busy on their cells, Internet or working and letting kids to fend for themselves…..Oy!
Oh Pig – put a little more thought into it – think about your cheese-eating skills.
Pig is stupid, Pig is sad, Pig is stupid, Pig is sad. This strip has really gone downhill since Pastis started spending his time on other projects, and just phoning it in for Pearls. It has become the kind of simple, cutesy strip he USED to make fun of. Time to hang it up.
Then why enter the contest at all? Pig, you’re not digging deep enough.
Just listen to Melania
Story of my life.
The Miami Dolphins thought that that would be easy, too.
I read that as attained that goat.
Pig sets such lofty goals for himself! No wonder he fails at all of them….
