This is nice.
Pig makes fairy tales come true.
To everyone who ever said “When pigs fly”—TODAY’S THE DAY!
Like if Pig is your favorite Pearls Before Swine character
well, at least he’s starting to help the hungry
If there’s one thing this pandemic has proven is that there are still a lot of kindhearted people in the world.
“What one has to do usually can be done.”
“The giving of love is an education in itself.”
— Eleanor Roosevelt
No one person can do everything, but every person can do something.
Mr. Pastis, well done!!!
Thank you Mr. Pastis, I needed something uplifting during these times
We have the power.
Looks like Pastis is sober today! [The word has other synonyms too!]
Kidding aside, Well done, Stephan!
Pig almost didn’t exist after that fall. Pig must have attended the Wile E. School for cliff diving.
But seriously, a really nice heartwarming strip ,today.
I can just see it now. “How will I ever get to go to the ball?” “Hi, I’m your fairy godpig.”
Pig, PLEASE get rid of the virus.
Thank you Pig for a “Fairy” good start of the day!
I’ve heard of “eating like a pig”, but “feeding like Pig” is loads better! :D
Here comes the bacon pork and ham fairy, to feed the hungry!
It’s a start.
Nice, Stephan. Right up there with your best ones
Thank you, pig.
Thank you, Stephan Pastis. This is a brilliant strip. :)
Sometimes Pastis just reaches right into your heart.
Love the last panel ! Looks like Pig is ready for take – off ! … Croc Power ! …. Well Stephan put the thought into everyone’s head write a check for $10 and send it to your local Food Bank … please let your money talk :-)
Maybe this will boost PIGS self esteem….
To the stars on the wings of a pig
The Jasper Mall in Jasper, Alabama , is turning a portion of the former JCPenney store into a food bank. A dying mall helps sustain life, and bring life to love.
I love this!!!!
It’s a good start.
thank you so much. I’ve gotten to the point, well have been past the point, of any desire to hear more complaining and shaming and blaming. Lets get back to being good neighbors and doing what we can to make our own blocks better.
Thanks Stephan. A reality bite.
this comic is sweet
Thank you Stephan
George Carlin moment: Funny! But so true.
What a marvelous toon. Thanks, Stephan.
Brilliant. Brilliant. Brilliant. I’m inspired. Thank you.
Pig is my new superhero!
Let’s imagine that I have $1,000,001 dollars. I want to do good, so I find 1,000,000 poor people, and I give each one of them $1. And now there are 1,000,001 poor people. But I have done good, I guess.
We have met the cavalry and they is us…
Pig is the embodiment of “be the change you wish to see in the world.”
And who said pigs couldn’t fly?
“Practice little random acts of kindness.”
One small, anonymous act of kindness has a ripple effect on the world.
Thanks for that reminder, Stephan ( and Pig )! We needed that!
I just dropped off some pork ‘n’ beans at my church for the local food bank called Mannafest. We are responsible for donating pork ‘n’ beans. We can’t have church services, but charity and helping feed the hungry should not stop.
Life is what you make it. Friggin’ morons.
Every so often, we all need a reminder. Thanks.
This is a very good strip today!
The last panel has Pig taking the family’s advice.
It’s not what you believe. It’s not what you think. It’s not how you feel. It’s what you do. Good job, Pig. Keep it up.
There’s no tooth fairy?
If we would just ALL follow this advice.
For, behold! Here is truth, even great truth.
My food bank is my favorite charity. Everyone gets hungry!

Love is but a song to sing
Fear’s the way we die
You can make the mountains ring
Or make the angels cry
I emphatically Love this particular comic strip. It is upon each of us to Choose to Act for the benefit of the whole. We have a history of pulling together to do the hard work. Pioneers stopped their work to help a neighbor raise a barn. They did not wish it built. Americans have a tradition of “can do” that requires sleeves rolled up, and work to be done. Magical thinking may lead to potential solutions, but it is the hands-on work that makes the solutions a reality. I do what I can. So Thank you, to each and every one of you, who do that hands-on work, from medical professionals, all their support staff, USPS, delivery & repair folks, & neighbors who run errands for people like me (& everyone I’ve not listed). I join with millions of others when I say our appreciation and gratitude knows no bounds for you ALL; you who have chosen not to magically wish problems away, but to work so hard hands-on. You ARE the embodiment of the American Spirit at its best.
Today, I passed a food bank on my bike. Nice folks, volunteering..around the corner, I saw a guy loading food into a Porsche SUV….
Ever notice that trillion dollars companies have enough money to fix the problems like homelessness, hunger in our country, but don’t?
We have this wonderful comic, reminding us that there is good in us and we can have a positive impact on the world….but we end up circling the political drain with trolling and feeding the troll….can we have just one day without the BS? Please.
Outta the park with this one, Mr. P!!!
The problem is that even if someone good got into office and accomplished some good things, 4 years later there will be someone trying to take their place and undo it all. This is why human government can never work for the long term benefit of all people. It is imperfect and sadly, selfishly based. Every politician has their own agenda. For example, racism and bigotry cannot be legislated away. In order to get rid of those things you need to change people’s hearts, the real seat of motivation. And there is only one form of government that can do that
I’m on the Board of our local Food Bank. This one’s going on the wall.
Dang, this is good!
Nicely said, Stephan. Thanks for the reminder.
Thank you, Stephan!
One person at a time. One step at a time.
Pig meets Harsh Reality with a WHUMP and becomes a Good Fairy. Well done, Pig!
That’s a nice comma there on the sign. And very meaningful.
Pig is one of the nicest people in the world
You’re a good man, Stephan Pastis…
Capitalism is great as long as people maintain virtues like charity. If everyone would mind their own business and live a quiet and kind life, we’d all be better off.
sniff sniff, so beautiful
aww… this strip made me smile (not that the others don’t)
Awwww a nice pearls moment… never hapend before.
Honestly, this was Wholesome.
The Magic Fairy Mary could be a stand-in for God or other deities humans pray to for favorable decisions.
This is why pig is the best character
Reminds me of that song by Matthew West. “I shook my fist at heaven, said ‘God why don’t you do something?’ He said, ‘I did. I created you.’” (The song is called “Do Something”)
