So my campaign to bring Pearls Before Swine to the Sunday Comics Page of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette newspaper has so far been unsuccessful. We at the Mt. Washington Brain Trust & Pipe Club have long complained about the continued presence of strips such as Mary Worth and Rex Morgan M.D. in the comics page. Meanwhile the humorous and irreverent social commentary on the lives of a Pig, Mouse, Crocodile and ‘Zeeba,’ as scribed by Stephan Pastis, fails to make the Sunday cut.
To quote Harry Liller “I’m amazed at what goes on!”
Mary Worth is boring. And Pearls Before Swine points this out in wonderful fashion in today’s strip [July 21, 2009.] Enjoy. (or click on the comic to have a link to the daily Pearls Before Swine site)
Ha! He puts her in a closet! That mouse is crazy!
So come on Post-Gazette! Drop Mary Worth, and replace it with Pearls Before Swine.
