Pearls Before Swine (7/26/09)

07-26-09 (Pearls Before Swine)

Despite its shocking punchline, today’s Pearls Before Swine owes at least as much to its build-up as it does to its penultimate panel. I’m especially fond of the small details that show just how dysfunctional this marriage of over-sized mammals has become. Some panels show Elly Elephant straining to perform delicate tasks with her enormous feet, like cutting fruit or typing. But what really gets me is Henry Hippo’s peace offering of a single corn chip. Given that his bag was big enough to suffocate a hippopotamus, he could could have at least offered his wife a handful of chips.
