    Calvin’s mom really needs to learn to cook…or better yet, just let the dad do it. Or SOMETHING….!

    Dad should imagine that they are stuffed peppers, which they are. “Is Everybody Happy?” – Ted Lewis

    Pour it on, Dad. The more you gripe, the more Calvin eats. Our normally boisterous youngest son was feeling really miserable, so the pediatrician thought he could get a smile by saying, “I’m going to give you some medicine to make you feel better. Do you want the kind that tastes like fish guts, or bubblegum?” Of course, my little Calvin looked him straight in the eye, and deadpanned, “Fish guts.” The doc actually seemed a bit flustered for a sec. Can’t believe that’s the first time he got that response, but it did make the kid feel better.

    The dad is obviously not mature . . . and the dad can only cook frozen waffles and soup!

    Our oldest son always smelled of the food on his fork before taking the first bite of anything on his plate. Now in his mid 40s and still does it. He would eat just about anything but always had to smell it first.

    Mom’s who can’t cook are a staple of comics (and sitcoms, too) because it’s funnier and leads to more situations than if they do cook well. with kids involved, a lot of the time it is the food itself that creates the humour, rather than how well it is cooked.that said, this strip seems to be an example of turnabout being unfair play.

    “We had an old rule when we were camping. The first person who complained about the food had to take over as cook.”+++++They did something like that in the Elenium—the person who asked first was cook that day. As I recall, it took them months to figure out the rule.And then, for three weeks, nobody asked whose turn it was to cook—so the knight who always “kept track” had to cook.

    And, by the way, Dad, don’t ask about the rice in the pepper stuff- . . . monkey brains. She didn’t add any rice; those must be maggots.

    How to tell Dad that they are stuffed peppers, and I just called them “monkey heads” to get Calvin to eat them. Reminds me of the time Dad told Calvin his disgusting looking food was a plate of toxic waste that would mutate him, and Calvin scarfed it down like Cookie Monster eating cookies. When finished he said, “Ahh, I can feel it working already.”

    I guess monkey brains became more popular than I thought after Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom.
