    It looks like Betty got his goat. :-)

    Ah yes, selective deafness, the prerogative of the very young and the very old. :-)

    And she’s with him why?

    @ Yngvar ~ Thanks! I totally missed the implied compliment my first read through. Anyone else notice the intriguing math problem posted on the chalk board? Intriguing, that is, if you like math. I suffer from Dyscalculia, and that math problem would give me a nervous breakdown. Hehehe

    This strip is such a great example of how children wage a war of attrition against the lines that parents draw.

    Seems to me like Pierce could have another adult stand up to the Teacher for her bad calls, in order to make the point that regardless of age or status, someone shouldn’t get away with cheating those who have little recourse against them.

    @ Needachuckle: Just FYI, nearly 2/3 of firearm deaths in the U.S. are suicides. A sadder statistic is the 2.9 million cases of child abuse reported every year in the U.S. More than Approximately 5 children per day (so, 1460/year) die from abuse and neglect. Over 70% of those children who die are under the age of 3. The rest of the statistics re child abuse/neglect are just as depressing. The biggest problem in our country isn’t gun control, it’s a dearth of moral integrity and respect for human life.

    Wow. It never ceases to amaze me how invested and devoted people can become to FICTIONAL characters. The the mission of a storyteller is to capture your imagination and cause you to connect with the story’s characters, whether you grow to love, hate, or even be indifferent to them; the mark of an accomplished story teller is how successfully they grab and, more importantly, keep your attention. This excerpt from Jimmy Johnson’s Wikipedia bio sums up the subject of sexual innuendo in this strip, for which Johnson is well-known (no innuendos intended ;-) : "In his comic strip about a small family, Johnson, the former reporter and editorial cartoonist, presents political and social commentary through his characters. Of course humor is also integral, and Johnson writes ‘jokes about many different subjects, not unlike stand-up comedians do.’ Much of the strip’s content is grounded in ‘Arlo and Janis’ love and continued desire for each other.’ Johnson’s signature style is notable for undeniable sexual suggestiveness, so much so that ‘The Arlo Award’ is awarded to “Cartoonists Who Slip One by the Syndicate’s Censors.’”

    I can’t help but wonder if Piro might swing the other way.
