    Unfortunately, stepparents have been stereotyped as awful, with the “wicked stepmother” trope. Stepfathers are usually portrayed. In the spirit of Father’s Day, I am glad there is a song that positively portrays stepfathers, “Color Him Father” by the Winstons, about a man who marries a war widow and accepts her kids as his own.

    John was probably wearing those foam ear plugs which pistol shooters wear; the type you roll up, put in your ear canal then it expands to its former shape.

    As in the film Cat’s Eye, Phil should enroll in Quitters, Inc.

    Read the book Night Shift by Stephen King, because I am not going to spoil that reference. I will say this, Quitters, Incorporated would be an anti-smoking firm that would convince Phil to change. In fact, if Phil ever had a cigarette after enrolling in Quitters, Incorporated, Georgia would be shocked.

    Anyone read the Stephen King book Night Shift? In particular the chapter “Quitters, Incorporated” made me think of this strip.

    A manual mower is probably all they can afford. Roger maxed out their credit card playing poker in the last story arc.

    OK Michael, we will see! Just like in Back to the Future:
    Marty: Drinking and smoking? You might regret it.
    Lorraine: Don’t be such a square Marty. Everybody’s doing it.
    Marty: Oh so? Well if everyone was jumping off the bridge does that mean you have to?
    Lorraine: Man, you sound like my mother. When I have kids I am going to let them do whatever they want.
    Marty: I would like to see that in writing.

    Then the town is attacked by Godzilla and King Kong. Elizabeth is squashed by their feet, and people flee for their lives. Then King Kong says to Godzilla, “Good thing we came along. Otherwise, they’d have nothing to do.”

    That sounds like a Calvin & Hobbes which talks about a colossal ant that destroys a city and crushes cars. Calvin is then about to destroy an anthill but then remarks to himself “Then again, maybe I won’t”.

    Peter: Did you go food shopping?
    Mom: If I go food shopping, you are only going to want me to cook the food for dinner. Why bother?

    Nothing scares a cockroach…
    According to scientists, if a nuclear war occurs, three species will definately survive it. Cockroaches and rats are two, but I am not sure who the third is.

    I learned that as a teen when I worked my first job at a lumber yard. Gambling was illegal in my state, but where I lived was near a tri-state area where it was only a short trip to one state that had horse racing or another that had dog racing.
    Most of the men I worked with made minimum wage or a little more. Many of them had large families to support. And yet, every Friday (when I got paid) the majority of my coworkers cashed their paychecks and headed north to bet on the “ponies” or east to bet on the “puppies”, always with ideas of winning big.
    Usually, they lost. Occasionally, they won a little. And every Monday when I started work I would hear them complain that their bills could not be paid, their utilities were on the verge of being cut off, and how they could not afford to buy milk for their children.
