Friday Night Fights: Cuteness is Mightier Than the Sword

When you're a Very Small Animal like me, you must pick your fights carefully. Sure, I prefer to go out singing with a hearty chorus of "All You Need is Love" instead of resorting to hoofticuffs, but sometimes you have to stand up to a bully (of the other sort) and show him what you're made of (beans and fluff). Don't let your small size and placid nature get in the way of your beliefs, however: let Tove Jansson's Moomintroll show you how a Very Small Animal untrained in the fighting arts can triumph in the face of dirty dealing:

Of course, sometimes you can't win for losin':

All strips are from the sublimely delightful
