Let’s Keep Our Fingers Crossed For Stephan Pastis And the 2012 Reuben Award

If you’ve been reading Pearls Before Swine lately, you would know that Stephan Pastis has apparently been obsessing a bit about the 2012 Reuben Awards. Granted, with the amount that Pastis works ahead he was probably obsessing about this quite a while ago, but I think he’s probably still obsessing about it now. After all, the Reubens aren’t until May.

You see, the Reubens are the big awards for cartoon artists and such. And, Pastis has been imagining Rat in his strip giving him shit because he keeps getting nominated for the Reuben and has yet to win. I thought he’d already won one, but I guess that just goes to show what I know about the Reubens.

Regardless, even though we can’t impact the Reuben selection process, I think we should all keep our fingers crossed for Pastis. It would be really nice if Pastis won this year. His self-esteem (as opposed to his ego) could use the boost and then we wouldn’t have to see him later on Vegas Strip after he gets drunk in a bout of post-award show depression and attempts (naked) to alter the course of the stage production of the Phantom of the Opera at the Venetian.

So, come on. Keep your fingers crossed for Stephan. He could use the boost.

    Okay, I admit that I knew he was up for the Reuben but have not talked to him since early May….did he win…I am too lazy to google it or email him. Then again if he won I am sure I would have got an email from Pasty…excuse me, Rat…excuse me, Stephan telling (bragging humbly).
