Pearls Before Swine author’s blog

I read a ton of webcomics, and I’ve just found that one of the funniest things about them… is a blog written by one of the artists.

Stephen Pastis, the guy who writes Pearls Before Swine, writes a blog which, at the risk of being a offhanded compliment, is actually funnier than his comic.

An example:

The Secret of a Long Marriage
August 29, 2009

Saw a sweet-looking old married couple in the grocery store.  Both of them looked to be in their eighties.

Every time I see couple that old, I stop and stare, amazed that two people can stay together that long.  I’m always curious as to their secret of marriage longevity, and wonder whether it would help in my marriage with Staci.  In this particular case, I could hear them talking.

“Should we get milk?” asked the old man.

“We have milk,” she said.

“More milk,” he said.

“We don’t live in the woods,” she said, “We can come back and get milk whenever we want.”

“Shut your mouth,” he replied, “Shut your mouth.”

I’ll have to try that line on Staci.

I’ll let you know how it goes.
