Peter's Thoughts

"Lay" & "lie" are notoriously tricky verbs. They both refer to a state of rest, and certain tenses of one are homonymous with certain tenses of the other, and every single tense of both is monosyllabic and begins with the letter L. This is no doubt the reason for a certain extremist political party that advocates their total expulsion from the language.

At first one might assume that Nixy, when he uses the word "lie," is using neither in this troublesome pair of verbs and is in fact evoking yet another homonym that is not restful at all. But one ought not be quite so hasty. This is Nixy we're talking about.

Furthermore, one might assume that Timby's secretive behavior has something to do with the nature of his activity. But in all likelihood, he's behaving this way just to infuriate Nixy. The only other reason Timby might keep his celebratory goings-on covert is if he was supposed to be doing something else, in which case snoring the hours away is no better.

:D

One of my favorite pairs of homonyms, and one that is misused entirely too much. :P

It's genius. I love it. :D

Praise the Lord! Hallelu!

I don't care what the devil's gonna do!

The Word and faith is my sword and shield

And Jesus is Lord of the way I feel!

*innocent whistling*

The way Timby is sleeping in the last panel looks kinda like the way I sleep. :-P

Everything looks perfect from far away.

Hmm....?

I like the colored lights that you see under the door while the music is playing. And is Timby partying alone in there? If not, where are his friends?

We should take our comfort from God's word, not from the circumstances of our lives.

I love how Nixy is apparently vacuuming in the middle of the night.
