"Pearls Before Swine is my favorite comic strip."Pearls Before Swine is the hilarious new comic strip tale of two friends: an arrogant, egotistical Rat who thinks he knows it all and a slow-witted Pig who doesn't know any better. Together with Zebra, the activist, and Goat, the reluctant brain, Pearls Before Swine offers caustic commentary on humanity's quest for the unattainable. Smart, witty, and sometimes painfully honest, Pearls Before Swine mocks the flaws and shortcomings of human nature with cynical humor.

Pearls Before Swine has been syndicated by United Feature Syndicate since January 2002 and now appears in more than 100 newspapers worldwide. In panel after panel, Pearls Before Swine causes readers to lose themselves in laughter.

Review: Pearls Before Swine: BLTs Taste So Darn Good (Pearls Before Swine #1)

User Review  - Streator Johnson - Goodreads

I believe this is Stephan Pastis' first compilation, released back in 2003. While the artwork isn't as refined as it is now (really!), it is still a hilarious collection. The funniest strip out there right now, I believe. Read full review
