The kids are all right.
Hey, that’s my dad in the last panel!
OH my gosh, I was gonna say it was MY dad in the last panel! I think a lot of guys went to a secret “Dad School” together. Let me guess, he’s from the WWII generation, walked uphill to school and uphill home, carrying his little sisters through the waist-deep snow, and made his own bicycle from spare parts laying around the farm? Oh, and every time he passes a cemetery he says “ya know, people are just DYING to get in there”? Amiright?
Pretty much yeah.
And every time you would pass a railroad crossing he would say “Look the train just went past. You know how I can tell? It left its tracks!”
Having recently found out that I myself am going to be a father, I cannot wait to be entirely unconcerned 😛
My dad used to tell me to go play in the Freeway. I never once took it as hateful though, I always knew my Dad loved me, just that I was a little brat 85% of the time and he had raised 3 others before me lol.
My Mom said that. Dad didn’t much care as long as we were in by 10 (and we only tested that rule once!).

Panel 3: Is that a King of the Hill reference?
“…You need a license to buy a dog, to drive a car – hell, you even need a license to catch a fish. But they’ll let any butt-reaming @$$hole be a father.”
That’s not where babies come from

Of course, that’s why the state capitol building here in Lincoln, NE is called “The Penis of the Plains”.
Billy… Bobby. Love it!
Now I ain’t down the lingo but isn’t it supposed to be “junk” rather than “trunk?”. I can’t imagine a butt being a “phallus” in this case.
Someone wanna take this one?
my name is also adam and i will take this one
I’m a little confused about your understanding of elephant anatomy. Horton doesn’t poop out of his trunk?
Horton is the elephant protagonist in the story “Horton Hears a Who”. The mother thinks Horton’s trunk looks like a penis. It’s funny because that’s what all elephants look like.
See now, an elephant’s trunk is on its face. It’s the long wibbly-wobbly bit. Because of that, an elephant’s butt is properly termed the “caboose.”
Billy Bob is the best kid ever. I think.
I solemnly vow to use “demagnetised the compass of my sexuality” at the nearest convenience, along with “groovy”, “hail to the king baby” and “this is my boom stick” (yeah I just watched Evil Dead 3: Army of Darkness again).
Shop smart. Shop S-Mart.
I’m sorry, Ma’am but, I’m going to have to ask you to leave the store…
Indeed, one of the greatest phrases of all time.
i think of children alright i think of the ones that are in the newspapers. By the way my name is adam to cool hu.
Turn up when he gets hungry is about right.
Just reading through the archives (again) I noticed you do a lot of theme weeks where the first day of the week references a different planned theme (Plate Armor instead of Going to the Movies, Bondage Gear instead of Gift of the Magi, etc). Could I make a formal request to have theme weeks about both plate armor and bondage gear?
That would be A-plus.
I never understood parents getting all freaked out about “phallic” images in children’s stuff. If he doesn’t know what it is yet, then he won’t recognize it – only adults will – and if he DOES know what it is, then why does it matter at all?
Exactly. It’s the prudes that bring this stuff to the attention of the children in the first place.
It’s like a Child Protection idiot to claims that all fathers are molesting their children… It’s more likely the CPS is thinking about doing it/has done it.
You could have stopped at the second panel ROFLMAO!
I love how in Panel 2 Son-Bug is just staring at the floor, oblivious to everything his mother’s outraged about. “Oh great, it’s making that noise again.”
I also like how Dad-Bug in 4 is looking *up* to try and find his kid. “Well, he’s not on the ceiling…”
