    Oh, the child’s interpretation of “pin cushion.”

    Yes, they’ll definitely be able to find them there. What a pain in the butt! ;-)

    Thus Elly learns not to leave certain things down, and After the spanking, Lizzy learns not to touch mommy’s things. That’s how it worked in my house.

    I prefer the term “rectalgia”

    Oh, C’mon, Susan. This is a comic strip. Leave your judgement at the door and enjoy the moment. Of course it was a careless thing to do with a toddler running around the house, but the point is how Elly learns her mother lessons.

    If you are looking for a comic strip about how to be a politically correct mother in 2012, then there are other places you might want to try. If you are looking for a classic comic strip about the joys and sorrows of a family as it grows from day to day, then sit back and enjoy the show.

    I agree with you Brewwitch, I was under the impression that comic strips were meant to bring a brief moment of humor into life. That by their very name and definition they shouldn’t even be taken seriously, much less compulsively obsessed over and judged as proper or lacking.

    I believe that Lynn lives in the real world, not the sanitized version that so many people think we need. If you have two kids and a life, it’s not always possible to make things 100% safe. You just do your best.

    I believe it is possible. My mother had a metal sliver go in her foot and a couple of years later it came out in the opposite side of her foot.

    My great aunt swallowed a golden needle in Ireland around 1900. In 1963, she felt a sharp pain on a San Francisco trolley – she was taken to the hospital and it was found. point out trying to make its way through the ab wall.

    Non-absorbable objects can get a protective coating of facia (like the membrane around muscles) and can be pushed around by muscle action to parts elsewhere, and they do occasionally emerge as described. Interesting the ways the body has of protecting itself. Unfortunately, rape-induced pregnancy is not one of them, despite some political physiology doctrines.

    @ Susan Newman
    Hitler was a nut case and this is just a comic strip. You’re comparing apples to oranges. Relax.

    @howtheduck

    Whether they are humorous or not the point remains they are not real, and shouldn’t be taken too seriously.
