    Oh, poor Peter Otterloop, Sr. AND Jr. Happy Father’s Day, though, Senior (and every other father).

    The father learns from the son. Happy Father’s Day, Peter!
    Petey, you’re scaring Dad on his day!

    I was thinking that very thing well before I got to the last panel.

    Only Richard Thompson can make the mundane seem so hilarious.

    Wonder if Petey shares my hypothesis about the genesis of other household items…. I’ve believed for a long time that paperclips are larval coat hangers…. the paperclips disappear and wire coat hangers magically fill up the closets. Now I’ll have to start looking for marshmallows in my Cheerios….sigh.

    If you haven’t read Jody Lynn Nye’s Waking in Dreamland, you should. The next stage after coat hangers is bicycles.

    Yes, Happy Father’s Day, Peter, Richard, and all father-commenters!
    BTW, Alice’s detritus (she’s in the food chain!) reminds me of the oh-NO!-worry-of-the-day I just read about: It seems that there’s a world-wide salt-water invasion of microplastics, teen-eintsy particles of plastic shed from all our plastic marvels. These plastics can harm marine life, but apparently no one knows to what extent, and many marine scientists are not even aware of them.

    Personally, I tend to like the green-colored cereals/candies the best.

    And, is it just me, or might the “No” in the last panel sound better like this?

    @ Saucy 1121: That depends on the species of coat hanger. Around here they usually hatch into shopping carts or re-bar.
