    I love Rat’s expression in the last panel; I can almost hear him singing, “Everything is beautiful . . .”

    if it were me to be inoculated like that, I think I’d go for a Bundaberg root beer (I along with my father, brother, and sister-in-law tried some last month and it tasted kind of flat).

    The trouble with drinking to help is that it makes you effectively as stupid as what’s bugging you. Not to mention your liver.

    Alcohol at first it acts as a preventive vaccine, but at some point it turns infective itself. It must be used carefully, seems few do. I was no good at it, so i gave it up many years ago.

    I’m waiting for Rat & Goat to call the House of Hu and order Moo Goo Gai Pan. Out of context with the episode, but…’s worth watching the entire episode if you have Hulu – the way the knock-knock joke sequence plays out is brilliant.

    Drinking humor is lost on me. My mother, grandfather, and mother-in-law were all alcoholics and all attempted suicide during a drunk. The first two were rescued at the last minute but it was touch and go with lasting damage; the third one succeeded.
