Goat can also call the local mental hospital.
I thought the punchline was going to be bathroom-centered.
reminds me of the Seals and Crofts song, “The King of Nothing”
I thought getting a throne meant a toilet!
It would be fun if the toys revolted. overthrew him, and set up an anarcho-syndicalist commune.
Rat could be bounced from his throne in the Jumpy Castle.
Did somebody say Jumpy Castle?
Rat is expanding his kingdom.
a wannabe rat king….interesting
Luckily for them, his “subjects” couldn’t care a rat’s @$$ about Rat.
That’s Mister King to you lowly unworthies. And Count will do well for The Most Modest, Humble and Killer Good Looking… Yrs Trly… The❤️Count. You Know You ❤️ Him.
King Rat… someone should make a movie. Oh wait, they did.
Don’t make King Rat angry. He’ll order his army of little green men to attack you.
At least Rat is limiting the fantasy to toys and not neighbors.
He’ll always be the King of Pain
This can only end badly.
Using toys and a play set to make yourself feel like a king? You’ve got quite a complex, don’t you, Rat?
Going off on a tangent here, but back in the early ’60s (I think) there was a movie called “King Rat”.
“Jumpy castle?” Don’t you mean bounce house?
Careful Rat, remember “Uneasy lies the head that wears the crown”. (Some old time English writer said that LOL)
In the Twilight Zone episode, the subjects built a statue of their “king”. His ego was deflated when a race of even bigger giants appeared
The Rat King didn’t do so well in the Nutcracker.
So, we get a BIG bouncy castle and put Trump and Biden in it with lots of toys…
Start to worry if he orders a guillotine.
What’s a “Jumpy castle”?
Rat is very much more a joker than he is a king!
What does it mean to call someone a rat king?
The original German term, Rattenkönig, was calqued into English as rat king, and into French as roi des rats. The term was not originally used in reference to actual rats, but for persons who lived off others.
“Did you see anything?”
“No, I did not see you playing with your dolls again.”
Don’t give Comrade Biden any ideas!
Yes, once a King always a King, but once a Knight’s enough.
King Rat Fink…
A little whimsy isn’t the worst thing. Though this does seem to be more than a little.
I’ll have a Whopper with cheese and a coke please.
It will be a plastic coup.
Rat King is already taken.
The newspaper I read never publishes the Sunday comic. Today’s strip makes way more sense once you read the Sunday comic.
Leave the crown behind or you’ll have a deflated castle.
