Acerbic, biting, and hilarious, Pearls Before Swine
entertains with its mocking of human nature depicted by a Rat, a Pig, and a cast of predators and prey."Pearls Before Swine
, the oft-snarky comic that features a kind-hearted pig, a rat with the mind of Mencken, and suburban lions and crocs forever trying to ensnare their zebra (or "zeeba!") neighbors. The strip´s sharp, attitudinal zing distinguishes it from some of its less daring neighbors on the funny pages; its panels crackle with pitch-perfect timing." —Michael Cavna, Washington Post
At its heart, Pearls Before Swine
is the comic strip tale of two friends: an arrogant Rat who thinks he knows it all and a slow-witted Pig who doesn´t know any better. Together, this pair offers caustic commentary on humanity´s quest for the unattainable. Dilbert
cartoonist Scott Adams says that Pearls
is "one of the few comics that makes me laugh out loud."
