Greener Grass

The comic strip, Wizard of Id, created by Brant Parker and Johnny Hart, has been around since 1964. Even at that advanced age, it still manages to produce a noteworthy set of panels from time to time.

Case in point, the strip that was published Wednesday, June 27, 2012. The first of the two panels has a pair of serf-like individuals utilizing pitchforks in a decidedly aromatic environment:

For those who are familiar with the cast of characters in the strip, the second panel should come as no surprise:

Label it "The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Fence," or "Walk a Mile in My Shoes"...either way, the lesson is universal.

Truth is...an idea doesn't have to be new or surprising or unexpected to be noteworthy and beneficial.
