Pearls Before Swine (5/23/10)

What was the world like before the Internet? Well, imagine if this strip had been written in 1989. It might have gone something like this: Rat types his resume into a word processor. The doorbell rings and he takes delivery of a package containing a VHS tape of Perfect Strangers. He watches the tape and, curious about the show, consults an issue of TV Guide. He sees an attractive model in an advertisement, clips the ad, photocopies it, and distributes those copies to mailboxes throughout the neighborhood. He notices a new name on one of the mailboxes and decides to investigate by filing a Freedom of Information Act request. The request turns up some juicy tidbits, which he makes public using his local gossip column. He returns to his word processor to complete his resume. Sounds complicated.
