Isn’t that the definition of hope?
Cynical response: This little piggie went bananas.
Non-cynical response: Pig makes Raggedy Ann look like Oscar the Grouch.
Die hard .
I prefer a blindfold nowadays, to go with my face mask. And I am partly deaf…
Pig’s placing Mail-in Ballot collection boxes.
Pig is determined but hopeless…
The very same box that Pandora used to have.
Rat, you cannot destroy Pig’s Hopes and Dreams so easily.
Why, the sheer “Audacity of Hope”!
“Hope springs eternal.”
I thought life of Pig ended as pork chops or bacon.
I always carry a little picanic basket of hope. If it breaks, I just go and steal another one.
Better times are coming, right Pig?
Another Pig “Debbie Downer” moment brought to you by Rat ! … Croc Power !
At least Pig is not completely hopeless.
The moral of the story is Never give up your cardboard box of hope….even though it may collapse once in a while….
Is Pig related to Sparky’s Pig-Pen?
Pig sees the glass as half full
GOOD FOR PIG!
You’re up, Emily.
“Hope” is the thing with feathers
BY EMILY DICKINSON
“Hope” is the thing with feathers -
That perches in the soul -
And sings the tune without the words -
And never stops – at all -
And sweetest – in the Gale – is heard -
And sore must be the storm -
That could abash the little Bird
That kept so many warm -
I’ve heard it in the chillest land -
And on the strangest Sea -
Yet – never – in Extremity,
It asked a crumb – of me.
Her working title was “Hope is the Thing with Cardboard, Tape, and Staples”, but “feathers” sounded better, and didn’t screw up the meter.
I think that translates to… perseverance? Not a bad thing at all : )
That box would only be improved upon by adding Snuffles.
Is Rat really drinking tea?
Talk about hopeless.
Sorry pig, I do not think there is enough tape in the whole world to keep that box together for long.
How hopes get dashed…
Unrealistic. Rat drinking tea? Must be some whiskey in it…
“And now these three remain: faith hope and love…” Corinthians 13:13 and Alan Jackson https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c9PwWkV4HQ4
Unfortunately beneath the sign that said 2020 were inscribed the words," Abandon Every Hope All ye Who Enter Here."
I thought Hope (Hicks) was quarantining with the virus. So now there is no Hope.
Ironically, I once dated a pretty girl named Hope. Never saw her again. No Hope, no box.
Will Pig’s Box O’ Hope be followed by a Box O’ Crosby?!?
Metaphor on life. No matter what happens, don’t give up on hope….
Keep the ‘happy Pig’ strips coming, Pastis Just as long as he isn’t eating bacon.
Hope lives inside of most of us, Pig. You don’t need a box.
Here a tape, there a tape, everywhere a tape tape.
I didn’t know Pig worked for UPS.
MESSAGE TO EVERYONE: DON’T GO THE BIG NATE COMMENT SECTION! THERE IS A WAR!
Does anyone know what Concretionist is talking about?
“All it needs is some love” I think his hope got dashed.
What’s inside a Box o’ Hope?
Sometimes I get the impression that Rat doesn’t really like Pig.
Then I realize it’s that Pig is such an easy target!
