Rat, to a nunnery, go, and quickly too. Farewell.
I take your Bishop.
The Lama takes the llama.
a cheap chuckle . and I’m proud !
Does this qualify as a cardinal sin?
now why would Rat take a female monk figurine?
Unseen Panel 4 Stephen getting hit on the head by a baseball bat by someone, for the bad pun!!!
An independent bookstore near me has things like that for sale. Like the Mother Teresa action figure.
I would have taken a fence, but the figurines didn’t have one.
goat’s pondering whether to get out his nunchucks…
I’m having nun of this…
yet another iconic pbs strip…
I don’t care if it rains or freezes, long as I got my plastic Jesus, sittin’ on the dashboard of my car.

Brain just hit critical mass! Meltdown! Cannot stop laughing! Nunsense!
Rat just took the palindromic figure of a nun!
Stephan is reaching…
Take “him” to the stake. Quick.
In the unseen fourth panel, Goat is crowning Pastis.
Did not pass the Monty Python witch test …. burned at the stake :-o … Croc Power !
There are Nun worse then this pun!
It wasn’t Rat. It’s Friday and we all know what kind of meat priests eat on Friday.
If he took the Virgin Mary figurine, maybe he could’ve said: “Miss taken”? :D
Who can understand why Goat collects religious figurines?
Once more we see Rat getting Paris’s human!
Cue laugh track.
Oh, brother! Rats got nun, and Father Away is…
The final panel should have been rat tossing the missing figurine at Pastis, making it either “Nun of the Above” or a “Flying Nun”.
Oh my, nun jokes here and in Get Fuzzy today! Must be habit forming…
Goat, sounds like an offense to me.
BTW: Today’s “Off the Mark” has the same theme: https://www.gocomics.com/offthemark/2020/01/24
Not far off topic – The 2 Popes is a wonderful movie with insightful and funny conversations and a delightful ending. Anthony Hopkins is brilliant! I’m not a big movie buff but have watched it 3 times this week (Netflix streaming).
My sister’s a nun. (apologies to John Prine)
Wow Goat, that would have made a great chess set.
Holy smoke !
On the Chinese calendar, this is the year of the rat. Steph should bring that up sometime this month.
Rat likes leftovers
What? No threats of violence for this pun? Not even one? Nun!
I was flying on Braniff Airways in 1968. I was seated next to a Nun. In those days you got a 4-pack of cigarettes with your meal. Mine were menthol, which I didn’t like. I asked the Nun if she wanted them. Her answer: “No thank you, one habit is enough”. True story.
that last frame is where they beat the cartoonist…
But RAT took some others and not tellin……
So where’s that last panel with someone telling the cartoonist how much he sucks??? Seems like even he’s sick of that tiresome formula.
There are times when an obvious pun/ may even involve a nun/ but to truly inspire/ you’d throw in a friar/ but it’s too late: the damage is done.
Pastis, watch out for lightning!
This time it wasn’t Stephan’s fault
And he sold them all to wayward priests.
Shouldn’t they all be in a room confronting Pastis in the last panel. Where’s the tradition??? lol
There’s a nun in heaven planning to run for office. Vote for Nun of the above.
Actually, the nun died and now she’s nun of the above…
Yeah, can see the wheels in Goat’s head turning. “Did Rat just tell me he didn’t take any of my figures? Or did he say he took a nun? Dear god, what would he do with that nun figure if he took it?”
I saw a very nice figurine of John Paul II at a Catholic gift shop once.
That’s low even for you, Pastis.
Wow. A pun that did not result in Rat wanting to hurt Pastis.
Goat’s figurine collection is impressive, but there’s no question the coolest religious figure is Joshua, Bar Nun.
It’s a habit.
D’oh! Goat is left speechless.
We, on the other hand, want to get our baseball bats and pay Cartoon-Boy a little visit for Attitude Adjustment!
sounds like a kidnapping movie
