If the letter had said “Whoopsie Daisies,” then Bill the Butcher is the powers that be.
Isn’t Pastis the Power That Is here?
Well, at least that is a little bit funny, unlike most of what preceeded last week.
I thought “the powers that be” were informing Pastis that he is being streamlined off GC.
I think they are quoting Guard Duck.
My retirement plan only included one “Black Swan” event.
Yeah… “once in a lifetime” has morphed into ho-hum repetition.
Sorry, but it’s a highly touted axiom that the Ultimate Power that Be NEVER says oopsie doopsie.
Can we vote against “These Powers That Be In The Universe”??
As if the universe cares.
Why in the WORLD (so to speak) would the powers that be in the whole universe even notice our tiny little backwoods planet on a lesser arm of a nothing-special galaxy? Much less apologize.
soon, they’ll realize they’re in the zoo on tralfamadore…
“The Powers That Be” will have a chance to make up for a lot in November.
If that is really the policy, then I’m owed a lot of good years (and I don’t mean tires).
No. It wasn’t some fictional “powers that be in the universe” who did this. We know who did this and WHO helped them.
It hit the fan this year for sure!
This sounds like sarcasm.
I don’t like their attitude either! If they were really sorry they’d make up for it with a bunch of good next year!
Maybe we’re just balancing for the Summer of 68?
Oopsie Doopsie, doesn’t begin to describe the clusterf@#k that 2020 has been!!!
I like to think that it has balanced – someone, somewhere, is having the best year anyone has ever had.
Well, at least they admit it.
Isaiah 45:7 I create the light and make the darkness. I send good times and bad times.
I don’t normally comment (or read for that matter) but I noticed despite there being 4x the likes there are half the comments Big Nate has. When I read Pearls treasuries there are normally a lot of things that come to mind that I could comment on yet it looks like people only make accounts to like pearls.
it was said that the Norse Gods were not perfect – i learned that from Stan Lee
call it character building…see i got more character!
Rat other than Beer what do you like ? …. Croc Power !
Somehow that Karma dude got mixed up who he was supposed to zap….
Oopsie doopsie? Where is the comic censor when you need him?
What does that really mean ?
Thanks for the decrease in traffic. Can you do something about the gators and guard duck though? Missed.
no the universe is rigged too.
Afraid that the POWERS THAT BE IN THE UNIVERSE is not a democratic organization.
If that’s your explanation . . .
It is unfortunate that it took a worldwide pandemic to make us realize that we humans are all in this together. The novel Coronavirus does not discriminate, it has no nationality, no political agenda. It is an equal opportunity killer.
It is only the Political Powers That Be that have tried to turn this disease into something to feather their own nest with. Unfortunately, almost to a man ( or woman ), they’ve made complete ballocks of it!
Oopsie doopsie, eh? I’LL SHOW YOU OOPSIE DOOPSIE, YOU SCUMBAG PILES OF…
Scary part is, there’s still three months to go.
The “Powers that be” in the universe have simply given up and allowed evil to reign supreme.

Fans of 2020 will be disappointed to hear that the Earth will NOT be hit by an asteroid this afternoon.
I don’t like the implication that some abstract fate has brought us to this. Our miseries have been written by human agency and we should hold the specific individuals responsible for our suffering to account.
OOPSIE DOOPSIE, My BOOPSIE!!
Stephen Crane — A man said to the universe: “Sir, I exist!”.“However,” replied the universe, “The fact has not created in me. A sense of obligation.”
Our Top 0.1% never did better.
Are these the same guys who were behind The Big Bang?
I thought the Powers That Be only conversed with Broom Hilda. Could Irwin secretly be Pig in a fur coat?
Why would The Powers That Be in the Universe send a letter when a lightning bolt or two would do just as well and far more dramatically? Get real!
Typical committee work.
I think Pastis and others might be surprised at the end of the year.
The Powers that Be have messed up so badly, that we demand that the rest of the 20’s be excellent to make up for it. At least I demand it.
