Again with the backhanded comments, Mr. Patterson! Can’t you show your wife some sympathy???
watch it, John, or you’ll catch El’s illness and you’ll also get laryngitis
He’s lucky that mug she’s holding is full, else the back of his head would be feeling it hard.
If we had a FBoFW drinking game, the witty insult made while walking away with hands in pockets would be an “everybody drink 2 shots” event.
Just can’t resist can he? Always has to get in that parting shot. I hope you know while she’s sick you’re doing everything for her, don’t you John? So get cooking, those kids will be hungry!
Just like a scorpion, the sting is in the tail.
One thing I love about modern day; when I do get laryngitis, I can use my computer to talk to my family. (It also came in handy when we wanted to talk about birthday or Christmas gifts if the girls were nearby; just text on Skype while sitting right next to each other! LOL)
Too bad there isn’t a nice heavy book handy when you need one ! ! !
Don’t forget Odie had a lot of fun for a few days.
And that’s when the fight started…
It’s a joke!
I think Elly should pretend to be sick after she’s better and see how the family gets along on their own.
John with another zinger! It was funny, but he sure likes living dangerously!
You will pay for that crack, bub. :D
You needed to leave the last comment as a “thought balloon”… ;-)
My husband said this, and it was a good thing. I was too miserable to write and I needed some good material!
I’m sorry, but I think it’s funny and I’ve said something similar to my wife – lovingly and in jest of course – and she knew I was teasing.
wow, in Stone Soup Classics someone is might get a nice hot cocktail to recover from their flu
Actually, that’s no fun having no voice. I get that every time my sinuses go haywire.
In my family we all tease each other with zingers, the cleverer the better, and everyone finds them fun. The extended family, not so much.
Careful there, John. Laryngitis doesn’t affect the throwing arm.
This is called cruel humor. We are supposed to laugh.
John, stop with the snarky remarks. And remember your attitude the next time YOU are ill.
I think that the author had a husband like that
APRIL’S COMING!! THIS COMIC WAS ORIGINALLY MADE IN JANUARY OF 1990! A FEW MORE MONTHS THE NEWS OF APRIL WILL BE MADE!
Trying to be funny… :-)
Careful, John… You know what they say about the silent ones…
