He may be ahead of assassins but he’s behind mimes.
Good news: Stephen Pastis will only have to wait 86 years to get the vaccine!
Are anti-vaxxers anywhere on the list?
I guess I’m in the third group (being an employee of a grocery store)?
With Italian prorities and shots per day I hope for the end of the year…maybe.
Standing between assassins and something they want is the most dangerous place to be.
Maybe Pastis is at the bottom of the vaccination list because he’s a lawyer=at least by training.;-D
That’s why we pun for fun.
Unfair to assassins.
Biden thinks we’ll be able to get everyone in the US vaccinated by end of May. That’s 90 days….
I’ve been pun-ctured twice. I’m good to go.
I think we should expose everyone to the 2020 New England Patriots, they couldn’t catch ANYHTHING!
You’re lucky you aren’t ahead of proctologists…
Wait till you find out restrictions stay in place whether you vaccinate or not.
Y’ mean the wise assassin on the hill?
i find it hard to believe that stephan actually profits from puns…
Why? What’s wrong with a good old fashioned assassin?
Don’t worry Steph, the largest group is “Others” and it won’t be too long.
Some here in the US want to put assassins at the top of the list.
And the difference between “those who profit from puns” and “assassins” is …
Steph’s down there because his puns assassinate good taste.
I’m curious. When they had vaccination clinics for first responders did they play this song?
IIRC, there have been occasions where Mr. Pastis has been made a Prophet in puns.
So he’s being pun-ished?
or you could dress up in granny clothing with a wig
sorry pal you missed politicians at number 1…..
I thought Stephen would be first to get needled.
Funny how politicians seem to be considered “essential.”
= 40% of Americans = their Choice, not yours
How many times to I have to tell you? No more puns!
Wonder if the gang will get their shot? Rat and Pig will probably throw a hissy fit, but Goat will! The crocs won’t but Zeeba will! AND Pigita already had her first one…..so there you go!
You can have my place Steph, for the first 4-5 years.
I’m in Group 2, but can’t find a place to receive the vaccine within an hour’s drive each way. Also, I live in Texas. People haven’t been vigilant about wearing masks regardless of mandates, so lifting the mandate won’t matter any.
He needs to get his ahead out of his assassins.
Assassins should be at the front.
In India we have as follows: -Group 1: Covid Warriors (Doctors, Nurses, Police, Sanitation workers, etc.)Group 2: People over the age of 65 and people over the age of 45 having co-morbidities.Group 3: Others
Haha! Personally I think punsters should move up that list as they keep the rest of us entertained.
Cartoonists should be next to long term.
It’s asinine to assume assassins get shot in the ass.
But he’s still behind older assassins and assassins with vulnerable conditions.
Just be grateful that you’re not being sent to the punitentiary.
I’m the least essential person in the state!
At least Steph is ahead of somebody.
Time to thin the herd a bit, there’s only so much space for pun-makers in this ecosystem…
Poor Stephan! Must be sad to know one’s expundable.
I wonder if they have a vaccine against apundicidis?
I got my second shot 2 weeks ago today. I’d put Pastis in front of a lot of idiots.
Would it help if he mentioned he used to be a lawyer? Or will that get the same reaction that the Lost Boys gave in Hook?
That surprises me too……
Ahead of illicit drug dealers too.
the anti-vaxxers are having super spreader parties in TX & FL to find out if their faith is going to cure them
that was the punch line for Pastis
Couldn’t we move pun-writers to a different list; perhaps those who are unknowingly injected with experimental vaccines with dangerous side-effects?
People who can make us laugh should be right near the top. Of course, that’s subjective, and could include anti-vaxxers and a lot of politicians.
You’d be right there with Isaac Asimov (if Dirty Old Men wasn’t Group 784!)
Good one, Steph….. and all good comments, too. I do agree with whoever said anyone who gives us a laugh should be considered essential!
Couldn’t the assassins just kill everyone to get it sooner?
Assassins should be insulted!
You need to profit from puns to be in that group… :P
Assassins should come before those who profit from puns. Puns should always be free and plentiful!
…but only because punsters murder jokes and not people.
U belong n group 1 as a mental health worker. Luv your strip. Eagerly anticipate the end pun when i see the setup leading to it. Sure your degree wasn’t n psychology?
Is he ahead of PUNdits?
But now assassins just want to assassinate all the people who profit from puns.
OMG! We’ve all been assassins this whole time!?!
Yes, any time a choice is made it’s discriminatory.
but only by one
Most certainly, the Pun-isher Cartoon-Boy does not belong ahead of assassins!
Oh man, the GoComics commenters are even lower on the list then as we don’t even profit from them. :)
No fair! Assassins serve a useful purpose.
