    This is the “old” Laura, before they toned down her sarcasm a few years ago. Probably did a focus group (or read the GoComics comments) and learned that most people considered her to be a bit of a b****. She’s been a lot nicer to Adam since then. At least that’s my take on the strip. I’m curious if anyone else noticed Laura’s evolution.

    In my family sarcasm is practically a second language. We bust each other’s chops but it’s always tongue-in-cheek and never meant to be taken seriously. I always find it surprising how serious people get when they see sarcastic banter in a comic strip. I think the banter is great, but to each their own.

    So, what is it he does?

    He makes us smile, and sometimes laugh. And sometimes cringe. He lives a full life, though. :)

    Where I come from, sarcasm is rude and disrespectful. It’s basically mockery or derision, and meant to be derogatory.
    However, I would admit that adults who highly respect each other can be light-hearted and utter sarcasm on occasion.
    But, in this day and age, women/wives are well known in making biting, scornful comments to the menfolk, with obvious intent.

    It looks like she may have hit on a sensitive spot for him. She may make more money than he does and a lot of men can’t handle that, they think it’s a threat to their manhood.

    Doesn’t Adam write some kind of blog ? I think he gives advice to men that work from home and take care of the kids. Nothing wrong with role reversile and is getting quite common.

    When you get a staight line like Adam gave, it’s hard to resist making a comment like the one Laura gave.

    Along with eating and a roof over your head.

    My wife just got a promotion and a major raise at work. She now makes more than me, so now I have a tough decision to make. Should I allow it to threaten my manhood, and perhaps ultimately my marriage, or just roll with it. After 25 years of marriage, I’ve finally decided, She’s a keeper. (meant fully tongue in cheek, of course).

    I’m with you on the whole sarcasm thing. If there is mutual respect for family members, I see nothing wrong with it; the major thing is the intent behind the comment.

    And he may not have a measurable “IQ”…

    Adam works from home, and provides the daytime child care among other homemaking duties.
    Would you make such derogatory remarks about a “stay-at-home mom”?
