Did Stephan Pastis insert the “F-word” in Tuesday’s Pearls Before Swine. Readers of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch claim that it is there, the copy editor is said to be embarrassed. It made the local newscast.
Hat tip: John Glynn.
UPDATE: I see Stephan has posted a response on his blog stating, “Apparently, certain readers think they see the “f” word appearing twice in this panel. Personally, I can’t see it, and I know it was not in the strip as I created it. The only thing I can think of is that the way in which certain newspapers compressed the strip resulted in the “f” word appearing.”
