Mutual Of Omaha's Wild Coincidences

I'm am Stephan Pastis' #1 fan.  I've followed Pearls Before Swine almost from the beginning.  One of his early strips dealt with the natural world.

Discovery Channel recently had Shark Week, and this is the promo they made --



Other than the ending, it follows almost beat for beat the original strip, returning a rescued seal to the wild (although, in Pearls, it gets eaten by a whale instead).

No, I don't think they ripped off Pastis.  Lots of people with awareness of nature and warped senses of humor would have done this.  And it is a well-crafted gag.

I just wanted to establish that my favorite got there first is all.
