You can’t fool your friends, Rat.
Knowing Rat, he was drinking Corona beer.
Goat, I like your mask!
But how could you think such a thing about Rat? Did you happen to peep into his recycling container?
Coronavirus? Are you sure? Rat’s book is about his research on Corona vs. Us.
Corona, the beer
so does the truth, Rat… it hurts as well
Dang, caught me……
Being Italian I could teach it myself, but I refuse to have a student like Rat .
Many others are making babies.
Is Pastis trying to suggest that spending the time just drinking is somehow bad?
You can’t spend all of your time only drinking. Your bladder will insist on that.
His writing skills were a “NEED BEER” sign…
The truth always hurts.
Goat’s mask is adorable
He could have been drinking grapa-that’s Italian.
Italian? Rat, stop. It’s complicated and useless to learn it.
Rat put your cans in the recycle bin ! (Harder to see when in bin ! ) … Croc Power !
Write what you know about……
This has actually been very good for my piano skills. And I recently finished “Tristram Shandy,” now I’m in the middle of “The Pickwick Papers.”
He should be a lot fatter.
Doesn’t pay to fib….they all have your number….
Not just drinking. We’re also binge eating!
My wife likes working from home, but does miss interacting with her co-workers.
Rat for king…Kat for bishop…Steve for catcher
YES! Thank all those who have gotten us through this. It’s ENDING!! People are back out shopping! Few coming into the store is wearing a mask. People are ready to get back to the real normal (not the new normal). Economy is rebounding, stock market up, unemployment dropping more than expected.
Only trouble is people that have holed up have forgotten how to drive.
Time to get back to living life and working!
Gator quarrantine must be hilarious. Duck is probably enforcing social distance with a bazooka
I don’t have my books and I can’t practice my instruments because of those neighbors.
I’m there too.
Last panel, most people.
Love the mask, Goat-
Home for a rest
One of the few times Goat gets over on Rat with the parting shot! Love the mask Goat!
But that’s what Rat has done all his life.
nailed it! …I’ve got amazingly LESS done during the last 86 days.
Unless this is a repeat, I’m disappointed Pastis didn’t take up the challenge. http://www.dailycartoonist.com/index.php/2020/04/28/ncs-planning-sunday-comic-event-to-honor-crisis-workers/
Running the same strip two weeks in a row makes me feel very Groundhog Day-ish
I thought I read that Pastis is one of the cartoonists participating ing the essential workers tribute. All I see is Goat’s mask. Am I missing something in the beer cans? Thanks
Is that cup of tea attached to his belly?
they say you’re gonna be a hunk, a chunk or a drunk… we can guess about Rat?
What is your point Goat?
Fat only drinks because IV’s are clunky and slow!
He’d be great learning the pied pipe.
Whats behind the curtain Rat?
The Italians have 37 words for pasta. Eskimos have 42 words for snow. The French have 51 words for surrender.
I’m learning French and the banjo. It’s driving everyone mad.
Hahaha, Rat! Goat knows you only too well.
Rat reading history books. That right there is a red flag that he’s been doing nothing.
Why would Rat be hurt, he’s the one who’s always ragging on people?
stephan — no acknowledgement of front line folks? I expected it from you
Is the joke that Goat closed the blinds on Rat?…Even though the blinds are on the other side of the window? Pastis is terrible.
Goat’s mask looks super weird
No need to embellish the truth, Rat. No one cares what you’ve been doing at home. But that mountain of empty beer cans speaks volumes about volumes of beer drunk….
Everyone knows Rat’s an alky.
How does goat drink his tea with his mask on?
Was this a rerun? I’m sure I saw this comic before in the last month. (might have been in the local paper, printed out of order.)
I discovered Levante and Neffa. ’Nuff said.
Look steph still only draws crushed can facing left the cool types of stuff you can learn in his treasuries is amazing
