    Instead of trusting her mother enough to express her emotions, she employs an extended set of metaphors. Very healthy family Gene has tied himself to.

    That’s blind man’s bluff please. Indian poker is an offensive stereotype.

    Blind man’s bluff? That’s offensive to blind, pathological liars. How can you be so insensitive!?

    Offensive to people from India? Offensive to a white man who dates and Indian? Offensive to the Cleveland Indians?

    You’ve obviously never gambled at an Indian casino.

    Meg must totally take after her father cause she doesn’t look anything like her mother anymore like in earlier strips.

    There’s something poignant about Meg’s last comment. I read it like “I may look OK with all this but I’m really not.” That girl needs a hug at the very least.

    When I was a kid, we always called it “blind man’s buff.”

    Sure enough, Wikipedia says, “Blind man’s buff or blind man’s bluff is a children’s game, a variant of tag. The traditional name of the game is ‘blind man’s buff,’ wherein the word buff is used in its older sense of a small push. The game later also became known as ‘blind man’s bluff’; it is possible that this name is a linguistic corruption.”
