Pearls Before Swine

What comic strip is Pastis parodying?

The title’s right in the comic.

My mom actually had one of these hanging on a wall for a long time.

Thanks, I had no idea that was the name. :slight_smile:
"Kim Casali died in June 1997. " Damn.

“You know what you two need? A little comic strip called Love Is…. It’s about these two naked eight-year-olds who are married.”

I keep hoping that one of these threads will not be about a comic strip.

I keep hoping one of these links won’t be to Wiki…

When I read the strip in yesterday’s paper I thought the character was supposed to be an angel or something. Then I read the wiki link and I thought: OMG, you realize those are naked children, right?

I had a Love Is … binder in the 6th grade.

It was a more innocent time. Nobody thought it was perverted – just sappy at worst.

Another good sig, one the MOds wouldn’t prevent or steal. :slight_smile:

I thought it was “two naked eight-year-olds who aren’t married”?

Since the strip is all about what love is, it wouldn’t make sense for them not to be married. The line is “are married.”
