I've often wondered about life in a different form, but it had never occurred to me to consider life as a mop. I believe that I have danced with a few now and then to practice my steps, but I never wanted to be one. I always thought it would be pretty gross to have your head stuffed in dirty water all the time. Mr. Pastis may actually be weirder than I am, and that's damned impressive.
It does seem to me that the pig got it wrong though. If he really wanted to imitate a mop, he should have gone in head first, and that position would make its own statement to the world. Pig's an illiterate pollyanna though, and I doubt if could even understand the concept of mooning somebody. --gk
