    Beer and unprotected sex is the first lesson for fertility doctors.

    The real-life Pastis seems like a much more caring dad than his cartoon self… thank goodness!

    Would help if the wife had not kicked him out.

    Not the wisest advice I must say. Go with the adoption. Hopefully, you will skip the diaper phase and give a poor kid a home.

    Well, at least Rat, Pig, Goat, Zebra, or the crocodiles didn’t butt in to help Bob out.

    He named them Regret, Mistake, and Accident.

    Think it was either The Crass Menagerie or Pearls Sells Out that Pastis said he deliberately made himself a loser in the strip as a kind of reverse psychology to encourage kids not to be like his comic self.

    Neighbor Bob can’t salute the flag, if you know what I mean.

    Wait, what? You’re allowed to say “had sex” in newspaper comics? I’m not saying that’s in any way bad, I’m just surprised.

    Ideally, you adopt an 18-year-old and then kick him out of the house.

    Adoption isn’t easy as most of the children up for adoption are pretty damaged. It takes an unusually good couple to care for them. Most have been neglected, abused, even sexually abused. A lot of it’s drug related. My cousin and his wife are trying to adopt 3 boys whose druggie parents simply dropped them off at children’s services then disappeared. So you have to be willing to take on those problems when you adopt a child these days. They had been in other foster homes where they were physically and sexually abused. Plus they had been neglected and physically abused by their parents when drugged up, and the parents had “rented” them out to pedophiles for drug money as well. The boys have loads of problems, as you can imagine, and it’s going to take a long time to get them straightened out. People who adopt such children are sure earning their spots in heaven the hard way.

    Good luck to your cousin and wife. They’re saints and I hope there are adequate resources where they are to help them.
