For the "Peanuts" prompt at Real Toads. We could choose our own comic strip, so I chose my favorite one, "Pearls Before Swine" by Stephan Pastis. The crocs are always trying to eat their zebra neighbor, but are too dumb to catch him.

The existential angst expressed here is metafictionally superlative and cogito-wise, absurdo sum lauda. And as ever, the motes of cosmic truth are quite dazzly if one looks for them.

I'm sure God and whole bunch of others are begging me to shut my big mouth. Retirement hasn't slowed you down, it seems...
Stop axing for so much and just tell God "thank You".
