Chutes & Co-Incidennce

My local newspaper runs the syndicated comic Pearls Before Swine. every Sunday. (It might run it daily, but I only get the paper on Sunday.) I don't always glance down to it, but I did catch this past Sunday's strip.

Given the lead time for newspapers, Stephen Pastis didn't copy from me, and I can attest to the fact that I know no one who works for him. We can call it a co-incidence that in the same week that I made references to Candy Land and Chutes and Ladders in one strip, references to those same two games appeared in his comic.

I guess that makes me the Pearls and him the swine.

Nice... his contained more @*#*'s than yours and definitely wasn't as colorful!
