I wish it was Dilbert. But today it is the May 16th Pearls Before Swine. Check it out today at this URL, but after today it will be in the archive.

@Clumpy:
Yeah, same as with Dilbert. I haven't read a decent strip for at least five years. It's a bit sad, since the strips seem only to be reused. There has hardly been a original idea for quite a long time.

I thank you for introducing me to PBS, and "Sgt. Piggy's" is one of the better comic strip books that I own. That said, PBS has had some pretty lazy punchlines for years (not that it's the only strip to do that, *cough*). Those dem crocodiles only have one punchline, and the hundred or so strips with them have been mostly retreads of the same joke.

One of the top reasons why I'm your fan, Scott is that you introduced me to PBS.

Look at all this !$%*!$%* I have to go through registering just to put a comment! Definitely liked the old blog better.

Pearls Before Swine is always good, but the funniest comic yesterday was Bizarro (particularly if you believe beliefs are retarded, and I do believe that).

Hey! This one was good. From PBS, I also liked the "Mrs. Butterworth" subplot, among other things.
@ Anon. A. Mus: the one from the 13th was good too.

I think this one's my favorite, though:

I never thought I'd here an asian say that, or at least I think they're asian..... say, are there any alligators or crocodiles or teetaliks or whatever in Asia?

That's not a real comic page ..... it's got a simple GIF pic that loads way too quickly, instead of some fancy but completely unnecessary (and painfully slow) flash thingy to display ... well, a simple pic

I don't like most comics strips. Sure, I've liked the occassional comic from many of the long-running series, but in general, I find most comics pretty dumb. Pearls Before Swine definitely falls into the "dumb and not funny" bucket by my reckoning.

The only comics I've consistently liked were Calvin & Hobbes, Dilbert, and Foxtrot. Of the three in syndication, Dilbert is the last man standing. I'll add Basic Instructions to that list, too. It's not syndicated, but I agree with you. It's great.

I like Dilbert better. There is no comparison. Math sucks. I never could count. That's why I had nine pregnancies in eleven years.

In high school I got D's in Alegbra and Geometry and A's and A 's in everything else. Good thing I married the ex-Marine. He counts all our money and gives me a dollar or so a day to spend all on myself.

I start training the new girl on Monday. Hope she catches on fast. She has two weeks (10 days) to learn all I know. PENIS. There. That would take me only a nano second. It's going to be sooooo hard to be a good girl and not a smart-ass when I am training her. I will want to tell her which of the CPAs to avoid and which ones are okay. But being a professional, all I will be able to say is --- PENIS. Maybe I could tell her I have Tourette Syndrome and she will feel sorry for me every time I shake my head and mutter !$%*!$%

Have a nice weekend folks. I'm outta here.

Frankly, the croc comic was not funny at all. Your's was the best of the day. It was hilarious. But I'm a tech worker. What can I say.

The Pearls comic was great, and wow, what a nice, user friendly web site !!

BTW, I figured out the value of x in my head.

I don't know Scott. I love pearls, even more than dilbert *gasp*, but this isn't his greatest work. Its one of his best croc comics, but I've never been a big fan of those ones. I am interested to know why you have indicated this comic over many of his previous ones such as pig's cereal nightmare series.

@tenthz: You needed a calculator to solve the equation? Wow, remind me to count my change, next time I'm at McDonalds and you hand it to me.

@shirtbloke: Profit!

Today's "Pearls before Swine" was good but Tuesday's (May 13th) almost had me wetting my pants from laughing so hard ... which goes to prove that you should always use the bathroom before reading great comics.

Not only is it funny, it could be useful. Hang that up in the Algebra class for the kids. Or the carwash for the adults.

Scott - I am sad to admit it, as much as I love Dilbert, but Pearls was great today! (I can appreciate it, even though I use Algebra every day as an engineer.)

I wonder what percentage of people actually solved the equation. I admit it, I am a dork, so I did. Sadly, I needed a calculator. *sigh*

I think you're trying to make some clever point here Scott, cuz that comic sucked.

Your strip was definitely funnier today. I do like Pearls because he takes risks with his strip (i.e., when he uses characters from other strips). But today, your strip was more relevant to me.
