Reply wwwjam on May 2, 2013 at 2:01 am Hey, that’s my dad in the last panel! Reply Jeff Clough on May 2, 2013 at 5:22 am 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? Reply Talia Bostian on May 2, 2013 at 6:04 am Pretty much yeah. Reply Niac on May 2, 2013 at 6:12 am 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!” Reply Armoless on May 2, 2013 at 8:12 am 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. Reply R. E. Hunter on May 2, 2013 at 10:28 am My Mom said that. Dad didn’t much care as long as we were in by 10 (and we only tested that rule once!).

Reply Jimmy on May 2, 2013 at 5:33 am “…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.” Reply ohplease on May 2, 2013 at 8:40 am That’s not where babies come from Reply BugFanNo1Million on May 3, 2013 at 12:30 am Ha! Reply Dave Dell on May 2, 2013 at 6:34 am “A things a phallic symbol if it’s longer than it’s wide.” Melanie Of course, that’s why the state capitol building here in Lincoln, NE is called “The Penis of the Plains”. Reply Wingspin on May 2, 2013 at 7:32 am Billy… Bobby. Love it! Reply Lomax on May 2, 2013 at 7:42 am 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. Reply Adam on May 2, 2013 at 12:13 pm Someone wanna take this one? Reply adam on May 2, 2013 at 6:40 pm my name is also adam and i will take this one Reply Robert on May 2, 2013 at 12:28 pm I’m a little confused about your understanding of elephant anatomy. Horton doesn’t poop out of his trunk? Reply euphgeek on May 2, 2013 at 1:56 pm 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. Reply oddnoc on May 2, 2013 at 2:49 pm 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.” Reply Michael Corley on May 2, 2013 at 8:04 am Billy Bob is the best kid ever. I think. Reply Jon on May 2, 2013 at 5:33 pm 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). Reply Adam on May 2, 2013 at 8:23 pm Shop smart. Shop S-Mart. Reply Mahnarch on May 4, 2013 at 1:09 pm I’m sorry, Ma’am but, I’m going to have to ask you to leave the store… Reply bd on May 6, 2013 at 4:33 pm Indeed, one of the greatest phrases of all time. Reply adam on May 2, 2013 at 6:38 pm 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. Reply tudza on May 2, 2013 at 7:30 pm Turn up when he gets hungry is about right. Reply dreadpirateusername on May 3, 2013 at 12:36 am 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. Reply Maoman on May 3, 2013 at 1:50 am 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? Reply Mahnarch on May 4, 2013 at 1:11 pm 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. Reply karine1976 on May 4, 2013 at 9:07 pm You could have stopped at the second panel ROFLMAO! Reply VaguelyCreepy on June 10, 2013 at 12:06 pm 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…” Reply Submit a Comment Cancel reply Your email address will not be published.
