For help on how to follow a comic title,
I know Connie’s daughters were sired by Greg with another woman, but I am positive that Connie gave birth to Lawrence, ergo she had a baby. The punchline does not make any sense and falls flat on its face for today.
Those who put down teenagers have a dull memory. They obviously forgot they themselves were once adolescents.
Not basing something off your family? Using an original, made-up fictional character? Novel concept, Lynn!
I think there was a strip about that. Michael refused to wear a navy watch cap in the snow because it would conceal his look. He then gets sick and Elly comments “You can have the prettiest hair in the hospital ward”
Something to consider when she grows up and her kids forget something. There could be a strip where Elizabeth comes to school in a patriotic leotard, knee-high boots, and a cape! Her kids would be sure to remember that. Although, I imagine her leotard would have a maple leaf emblazoned on it, like a Canadian Wonder Woman! :)
I seen a peanut stand, heard a rubber band
Saw a needle that winked its eye
But I done seen just about everything
When I see an elephant fly
It seems that without education and a moral code, the world will pass you by, to piggyback on the discussion of yesterday’s strip. I recalled that as I saw Pinocchio and the boys skipped school and engaged in bad behavior. The lesson of the original story was that children who mock education and morality are often destined to grow up to become adults who are qualified for nothing except jobs which require a lot of back-breaking labor. The Coachman selling the donkeys to such places, like the salt mines, represented how there are plenty of people in the world who will take advantage of the morally dissolute.
Great evil has also been done in the name of science, such as the infamous Tuskegee skin experiments. What Josef Mengele did was unspeakable, and that is no conspiracy theory, it was real.
We have separation of church and state. Now it is time to consider separation of education and state.
Knowing Calvin, he likes things that gross out most other kids. He would have likely dissected the frog with gusto!
