Pig Flu: Et Tu, Pooh?

Click for larger size. (Thanks, Sebastian, Mark K., and Stefanie.)


  1. Any pig stupid enough to hang out with a carnivore is a Darwin award candidate anyway.

  2. It’s about time that one-track minded, prick bear thinks of something besides honey.

  3. Saw this yesterday and see fit to repeat my comment: No ending quote and misspelled expletive.

    Be on the lookout for jokes that start with “Something something when pigs fly…” followed by some expository material and ending with the explanation being “Swine flew.”

    I expect to see it on Leno by Tuesday.

  4. Too late…

    ‘Member when you told someone you’d do something “when pigs fly”? A’ight, now’s your chance. Swine Flu.

    “hundreds of years ago, they said the only way a black man would be president would be if pigs flew, and look at that, one hundred days into his presidency and swine flu!”

  6. @3: Well, the expletive ain’t so bad – consider it a vernacular variant employed for added punch – but the missing quotation mark at the end does spoil the effect a bit.

  7. Fail for no closing quotation marks. (Damn, you Photoshop wizards need to take a fucken writing class!) Win, however, for the terrific bear-vernacular “fucken.”

  8. It’s an excerpt. Pooh’s paragraph might follow on the next page, hence no closing quote on this sentence.

  9. That particular spelling variant is not uncommon here in the Antipodes. If it helps, think of it as dialectal.

  10. Teufelaffe: Damn, you Photoshop wizards need to take a fuckin’ lesson in kerning.

  11. Since Disney put Poo and Piglet already through their manger and drained everything original and fun out of the books, there’s nothing left anyone could do to them anyway.
