i saw "Gone With the Wind" in the first panel and "Frank Lee" in the second and went "ohhhh here we go. i know how this is going to end." suffice it to say i was presently surprised by the last panel! :P

arrrrrgh they're getting worse

Took me a moment to get that one. xD

A very short moment, I hope -

Actually, he's a little hard of hearing. None the less, when listening to his own commercials, Frank Lee might hear High? Don't give a d_mn.

i mean, even though we all know it's coming, it's still hilarious to me how shameless these are.

Is this his new low? I don't remember any of the others being quite this brilliantly bad!

I saw this coming from the second panel when Rat said "Frank Lee" - but the last panel redeemed it :)

I think most people would notice; people are more familiar with the line than the actual movie so there's no way they'd make the same mistake.

Okay, this was one of those where between each panel I was saying to myself, "Stop. STOP! STOP!!" because I knew where it was going, and it was NOT gonna be pretty.

The punchline was pretty clear by the second panel, but let's be honest. These strips aren't about the punchline: they're about the journey. And they're also about Pastis drawing his characters hating him. This one was great on both of those counts.

Exactly. Especially given that Stephan botched the line on purpose. That makes what would have been painful, sublime.

If rat hates the jokes, why does he play so willingly along? This is some very deep commentary on predestination. Or it's just a really bad pun.
I love these

I love the last panel -- especially Rat's eyes!
