    Stupidity (politician) meeting the stupidity (voter) = some jerk making the laws.

    Laziness + stupidity = mediocrity. If you add in a touch of procrastination to mediocrity then it suddenly becomes failure.

    So, if Goat is synonymous with Subaru; then, I guess Pig’s direct link is Lada.

    Actually, luck sometimes happens when laziness meets stupidity also. And it’s not always bad luck, either. Life is definitely not fair.

    Sometimes it is just luck. Even when Preparation meets Opportunity, the Preparation isn’t luck, but the Opportunity often is.

    Any one else not get distracted by trump vs biden argument but instead noticed that its the same stinkin’ picture in all four panels. Pretty sure that Stephen uses an aluminum bat because no one has the muscles for a wooden bat with that big of a sweet spot.
