Ginger: Happy Warthog Day!
Ruby: Do you mean…Groundhog Day?
Ginger: I can’t keep track of all those animal names.
Ruby: Groundhog Day was Tuesday.
Ginger: I’m still calling it Warthog Day.
Ruby: We could call today Warthog Day…I’d support that.
Ginger: Works for now… I have patience.
Ruby: No you don’t.
Ginger: I do so! I have the patience of a panther.
Ruby: I don’t think that’s a thing.
Ginger: It should be.
Ruby: It’s the patience of Job.
Ginger: That can’t be right, I have a job – it doesn’t make me patient.
Ruby: So true.
Ginger: I’m pretty sure it’s patient of a panther. All they ever do is sit and wait for night to fall so they can stalk their prey – patiently.
Ruby: According to Walt Whitman, it’s patience of a spider.
Ginger: I dunno…they always seem in a hurry to get away when I see them.
Ruby: Yeah, Walt Whitman would argue with you. If he were still alive.
Ginger: A lot of people who are no longer alive would like to argue with me.
Ruby: A lot of people who are still alive would also like to argue with you.
Ginger: They’re argumentative as armadillos.
Ruby: No armadillo is argumentative.
Ginger: You’d be surprised.
Ruby: Are you just making up similes in the desperate hope that you can make an idiom that will stick?
Ginger: No. That would be crazy.
Ruby: Crazy like a fox?
Ginger: Crazy like a moose, Dib. Crazy like a moose.
Ruby: Please don’t quote Invader Zim to me.
Ginger: Someone is as cranky as a Cornish hen.
Ruby: Not a thing.
Ginger: As literal as a hyena.
Ginger: As obstinate as an ostrich.
Ruby: You’re not going to give up, are you?
Ginger: I’m as set in my ways as a warthog. And that’s why we celebrate Warthog Day.
Ruby: …okay. Happy Warthog Day.
