    We get it, all men are clueless…

    Actually that must include J.J., since he’s forgotten that Janis and Gene TEXT each other far more than they call. They would have sent several both ways by now, and the last two strips would never happen.

    Or am I still being clueless?

    I’m just clueless on what Arlo’s doing.

    And, I think Janis needs a hobby. Maybe volunteer for an organization that involves kids in need. Otherwise, she’ll continue to be a helicopter-mom. (Yeesh!)

    Arlo is literally throwing up his hands….
    it’s an expression, similar to throwing in the towel…


    i.e. “I give up!”

    Which he is doing because he told Janis not to bother the kids…
    … but Gene apparently was worried that they were upset about something, cos she didn’t call.


    Those are still some tough apron strings..

    Moms: NEVER call your son “Sweetie”. But if you must, please don’t do it in front of his male friends.
    Yours truly, teenagers everywhere.

    I think Arlo was trying to do Gene a big favor.

    My in-laws are wonderful, and I mean that sincerely, but if not for cell phones they would have a million dollar phone bill!

    Arlo is a victim of the 30 Rock game show “Homonym” where the answer is always “the other one”.

    Did you hear the one about the self-mutilating cannibal? He threw up his hands in despair.

    But what if they don’t know what we want?

    And in the past Arlo probably thought Janis only wanted one kid and she didn’t any lovin’ that night.
