In Friends Should Know When They're Not Wanted, Stephan Pastis, of Pearls Before Swine fame, offers a funny take on the dark side of friendship as shown through sappy photographs and sarcastic quotes. Consider the following:

* Friendships are like rainbows. They go away.

* You can't put a price on a friend. Which is too bad. I'd like to sell mine.

* There is no greater joy in life than the simple act of laughing with a friend. Except laughing at him. That rocks.

From friends expanding each other's vocabulary with words like "shmulky shlumperdik," to true friendships lasting a lifetime (like chronic back pain), Pastis emphasizes that friends can sure be good for a laugh.
