    John…not exactly what you should have said… ;)

    Years down the line, he’ll have a third. Then we’ll see who gets the last laugh.

    El’s expression is way too severe for today’s punchline.

    One can hope not. At least the syndicate tried to curb some of her hatred of men.

    I always thought a babe is not cute until they are 16 and pack an attitude.

    That was a bit creepy, although the same could be said of a boy baby. Too bad that wasn’t the case.

    And John’s propensity for being a jerk.

    Lynn doesn’t hate ALL men.
    She only hates the ones who have hurt her or have been a very negative influence on those she loves.

    Whoa. I didn’t know Elly could shoot death rays from her eyes.

    Too bad GoComics couldn’t curb you of your hatred of the strip.

    She just uses her own experience as a woman with men to get humor out of it. But to you it is some horrible slight against all men. It isn’t.

    Most babies are born cute as a means of their protection.

    You’re right, it does have sixteen in the final panel instead (better explains Elly’s expression in that panel). No Lynn’s Notes today though.

    Night-Gaunt49: I don’t remember the exact citation, but several years ago, Scientific American had a cover story on the functions of neotany.

    Oh stop with this vanilla bigotism!
    A 16 years girl may be, and often is, a memorable babe, she knows she is and she enjoys being such, and all her girl friends agonise in envy. There are dozen of teen models on very reputable fashion magazines, and they are there to be drooled after, not because they impersonate innocence or poetry or any moral value. Then, if the LOCAL law says “stay away” you stay away, of course, but that’s another thing, nothing to do with looks or hormones.
    I remind you that Juliet Capuleti jumped over Romeo (SHE took the initiative, remember?) when she was barely FOURTEEN.
    In this strip the caption was changed probably on lawyers’ advice to avoid trouble from readers that look always and only for “THAT thing” in every expression of human behavior from cartoons to Disney movies to biscuits ads.
