Between the elaborate puns and very decided personalities of the characters, I am a devoted fan and own several of the collections, which are frequently reread.
My introduction to this strip was when Pig's front yard nativity had been stolen and he was going door to door to his neighbors, asking them if they had found Jesus.
How can anyone not find that funny?
Pig's cheerful cluelessness, Rat's nastiness, Goat's all too wise frustration, as well as the stupidity of the male Crocodiles in their many aborted plans to eat Zebra. What's not to love?
I recomend this book to anyone who enjoys pearls before swine or anyone who heard about this from a friend
As I live in a small town where the local newspaper is apparently written by meth-addled sixth graders and is nearly unreadable, I haven't had access to daily comic strips in some time. Because of this, I had no idea what to expect from a Pearls Before Swine collection.
And I sure as hell couldn't have imagined something like this.
This strip has moments of such weirdness that I cannot fathom how it is as popular as it is in mainstream culture. I don't think Stephan Pastis can figure it out either. Maybe this is why he begins the collection with a number of letters to various newspaper editors across the country all expressing their outrage at Pearls Before Swine. Or maybe this is just part of the joke?
The strip constantly draws attention to the fact that it is a comic strip, which allows the humor to transcend the confines of normal comic strip humor. For example, look at one of the first strips in the collection:
A normal strip would have ended one panel sooner, which would have made fans of Family Circus chuckle and would have probably been posted on Facebook by Middle School English Teachers and Librarians.Read more ›
