disappoptimist

Today’s Pearls Before Swine, with an absurd portmanteau:

That’s disappoint(ed) + optimist. Though (like Goat) I wonder how you could maintain optimism in the face of constant disappointment. Note that Rat says he’s optimistic Goat will get smarter — but since Rat is always disappointed, we expect that Goat will not in fact come to understand disappoptimism.
