Then you better appreciate today!
“The beginning of a new day is the beginning of a new life.” —Ray Bolger, on an episode of Battlestar Galactica
Hey, you take comfort wherever you can find it.
2 days from now is another day.
One day closer to the end of your life.
You can count on it…
When the world gives you lemons, you have some positive options. When the world breaks your arm by busting a durian fruit on it… maybe it’s okay to just hunker and endure.
(that was a pair of metaphors)
“Tomorrow is another day”?? That’s from that racist movie!! Cancel this comic!!
(Nah, just joshin’ ya.)
Stephan Pastis must be a hoot to live with in quarantine!
Can you be sure tomorrow is another day? It might just be this one recycled with a slightly different paint job.
Confusion will be my epitaph/As I crawl a cracked and broken path/If we make it, we can all sit back and laugh/But I fear, tomorrow, I’ll be crying/Yes, I fear, tomorrow, I’ll be crying/Yes, I fear, tomorrow, I’ll be crying/
Epitaph , King Crimson , 1968
Tomorrow never comes…
Rat is becoming a Debbie Downer.
The rule is jam every other day. So you get none today. Today isn’t any other day, you know.
[To paraphrase the Red Queen’s admonition to Alice.]
We’ve run out of time, panel, so I’m going to flip all the cards. Arlene, your guess was very close. Mr. Rat is a professional Malcontent.
[Paraphrasing John Charles Daly.]
i hope it’ll be bigly bettery…
Tomorrow might be better than this one too, you pessimistic rat!
Pink Floyd’s …. “Time” comes to mind ! … Croc Power !

I feel your pain, Rat. The world is in a health crisis right now and keep in mind, you’re a rat. You only got like four or five years.
Do you realize the number of real words said in this strip comes down to 9.
“Some days are diamonds, some days are stone. . .”
Enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Enjoy yourself, while you’re still in the pink
The years go by, as quickly as a wink
Enjoy yourself, enjoy yourself, it’s later than you think
Let’s hope November 3 will be an even better day!
“Everyday is a gift.” (from my sister after surviving a serious illness).
Can 2020 get any worse?
I’m old, getting older faster. Constant pain in several areas, don’t think there’s a single body part or system that is working right. But I’ve come up with a catchy, thought-provoking response to the inane “How are you doing?” greeting. “Worse than yesterday, but better than tomorrow.”
“Today is the first day of the rest of your life” It’s up to you what you do with it!
Tomorrow isn’t guaranteed, so make the most of today. Be kind to others.
Given the state of things….
Today is already great. I expect tomorrow to be no less so. In fact it will be better, because my comics will be better – PBS can’t get lazier that this one.
You should switch to “I can’t Believe it’s Not Better”.
Guard Duck, please return an escort Rat away to wherever.
Pessimistic RAT inflames paranoid PIG!
My betterness is feeling More bettery, thanks to you-
Is bummer, yes?
I have often said: Today is the Tomorrow you worried about Yesterday … And now you know why!
The only thing you control is how you react.
Rat should become a motivational speaker. He has a gift.
Things appear different when you’re a Rat.
Rat is SUCH a ray of sunshine, Pig. I can see why you hang out with him! Seriously, you need more positive dudes in your life.
i can’t believe it’s not bettery
Few years from now, these might be the good old days.
In the world of Trump’s America, you can be reasonably sure that tomorrow will indeed be worse even than today.
Under different circumstances, Rat’s attitude might be called pessimistic, but given our current situation, I’d call him a realist.
When life gives you lemon, throw them at people. That will make you feel better
Rat does a nice job with the mime-signs, and shakes up the usually-bubbly Pig! Well done, sir!
