That’s it. Spud has a latent need to be immersed in salt water. Despite his phobia of sharks, in defiance of his terror of octopods, Spuds regularly chooses the ocean. Lobster vs shark… jump in the water. Stay on dry land or walk on piers where he knows he has a tendency to walk off of… walk on the pier and then off. He is still in denial but he wants to be at one with the ocean.
Dad thinks it’s funny because it reminds him of the scene in Annie Hall where Annie and Alvy have to fight back against the rebellion of their intended dinner… as the lobsters have escaped and are lurking, mostly unseen, around the apartment.
Also, Dad today has his “family resemblance to Sterling” momemt as Wallace did in Saturday’s strip.
Maestro, a little castanet music please!
spud, you fool there are more lobsters in the water than the ship
i like that the boat is called the narwhal
Spud. It doesn’t always have to be piers.
See, once wouldn’t be funny. Four times makes it a little funny.
Seven is hilarious.
Do lobsters really go “blrpp”..?
Notice Will Henry’s accuracy here. Some people think lobsters are red, and mistakenly color them that way. They are only red after boiling. Will has it right.
Heh. Dad laughs like Mr. Hayes, the shop teacher. Heh, heh.
I think I would like to move to Snug Harbor and be neighbors with the McLellans. They are fun people.
Sterling on the loose is scarier than a lobster on the loose.
Dad’s actually showing a bit of Sterling in him! They may be related after all!
Something I would do……
Isn’t ‘Lobster on the Loose’ being premiered next month? I think it’s simultaneously being released on HBO Max. Will Ferrell plays the lobster.
Lobsters go “blrrrp”? I never knew!
…and yet, I suspect Spud is just fine when the lobster comes in roll form.
So that’s how a lobster sounds…fascinating!
Cover yourselves with butter for to repel him! (I must be Pepperidge Farm, because I remember)
Ahhh Lobster in the Water!
I always wondered what lobsters sound like.
“It wasn’t a rock. It was a Rock Lobster!”
Mr. Henry could’ve gone with “Lobster sounds,” heh.
