    That was quite a scare there for Lio wasn’t it. I bet that got his heart to racing.

    Good for Dad and Mittens (love his expression)! Lio gets away with lots of pranks; one on him is fair enough!

    Especially since Dad has tried to turn Lio vegetarian on at least one occasion.

    That was amazing to see Mittens and Dad team up. Lio might need a defibrilator after that one. Hilarious.

    I see that Dad can be a trickster too–and that Mittens will co-conspire with him!

    Great face exression. Lio got strange Dad. Funny comic but reality is the cruelty of boiling live lobsters.

    Lio’s expression in panel 2 reminded me of Peanuts characters when anguished or surprised.
