"Pearls Before Swine" will visit "Dilbert"

This week, the popular "Pearls Before Swine" strip is being "visited" by characters from six other widely syndicated comics.Cartoonist Stephan Pastis is referencing "Zits" today, "FoxTrot" tomorrow, "The Boondocks" on Wednesday, "Luann" on Thursday," "Rose is Rose" on Friday, and "Dilbert" on Saturday.

The 36-year-old Pastis only makes fun of comics he likes -- and one of them is clearly "Dilbert." In fact, during the week of Nov. 29, "Pearls Before Swine" will visit "Dilbert" creator Scott Adams, who'll be portrayed as a drug-addled Elvis impersonator roaming around his "Gracebert" home. The six-day sequence was created with affectionate intent -- Adams and Pastis are good friends, and the "Dilbert" cartoonist was very helpful in getting "Pearls Before Swine" syndicated.
