Pig Latin



In my exhaustive research for today's comic, I read that John Steinbeck often signed his books with a drawing of the Pigasus, a mythical flying pig. He also included the Latin motto "Ad astra per alas porci":
"To the stars on the wings of a pig."

  3. The greatest pleasure this comic gave me was the knowledge that all the people who keep arguing with me that Latin is a completely useless language were missing out on its genius.

    <3 This is brilliant.
