    Remember to also charge for the ice. Nobody wants warm lemonade.

    Pastis did a much better strip based on this same idea back in 2010.

    Haven’t been on a plane since 2010. Has it gotten that bad?

    Before you buy, be sure what you’re getting for your purchase.

    And find out what you’re not getting (what’s not included in the price).

    An airline would charge at least $5, and it’ll taste like the stuff they spray on the plane’s wings before taking off in winter.

    I hope Pastis doesn’t have plans to fly in the near future. Airline hostess’s are not to be messed with.

    The airlines would also charge extra for the water.

    I think the analogy you would be looking for is if the airlines charged you $300 for luggage, a meal, a soda, and then charged you extra for the flight itself.

    I remember a strip where Rat got charged for everything on a plane ride, including the wings on said plane. That incident might’ve inspired him to do this stand.

    Nearly 30 years ago American Airlines made a startling discovery. They determined that eliminating one olive from each passenger’s salad plate would reduce costs by $40,000 per year.

    How did we get to airplanes from a lemonade stand? Take the fork in the road.

    I think if you claim to sell lemonade, it must have some lemon flavor. The level of sweetness can be subjective, and there is no requirement for ice.

    Goat actually thought Rat would be running a legitimate lemonade stand?

    Putting First Class aside, I’m surprised they aren’t selling “leg room” to taller/bigger customers.

    One of the origin stories of pink lemonade in the US is that a guy who traveled with a circus had no water, so he grabbed a pail of water that had just been used by a performer to wash their uniform…which was red…and some of the color had rinsed out in the water. He used it anyway, and it was a big hit. And now you know…..the rest of the story!
