    That is a bit of a challenge. Can Pig do anything?

    Well, it was motivation…ill placed, ill conceived and ill comprehended, but it was motivation…

    Why does this remind me of Sarah Palin, who proved she wasn’t a quitter by resigning?

    I don’t think Rat has found his true calling.

    I see in the last panel, Pig succeeded in giving up.

    Rat, why do you have to be so oxymoronic?

    Sometimes understanding what someone wants can be difficult, especially when they aren’t being clear about their needs. Misinterpretation is easy.

    Pig, you need some motivation on how not to split infinitives.

    Reminds me of the old gag: “We’re doomed!” “You should try to be more positive!” “Okay, I’m POSITIVE that WE’RE DOOMED!”

    We all know that animals don’t speak English. One must be very specific when speaking to them and also speak loudly, and slowly so they understand.

    Rat giving motivation? Well, this context makes sense.

    Assuming that these little animals represent humans, what king of folks does pig represent?

    While heading to my 23rd year of retirement, I have no idea what this one is about. Would a kind worker bee slave explain it to me? Ooh, wait, it’s nap tome.

    You don’t need motivation pig. You need a hug, some reassurance, and a hot fudge sundae.

    When I was in the state mental hospital, they suggested I fill my time by helping the other patients. Then I got grounded to my room for a day for teaching how to tie noose and bowline knots to the suicidal people. The doctors there were never satisfied.

    Rat was right again! Pig was ambiguous at best.

    Rat rules!
