So instead of communicating using simple language, they do it entirely by means of literary metaphor?
I think this is the first comic I’ve seen where the adult is explaining cell phones (or any other new technology) to an ignorant child.
Are we to interpret this as Jason actually intending to continue from there (in a Mother’s Day card)? I’m not sure how you can know that opening without knowing it doesn’t end well.
Unless, I guess, this was all perfectly innocent and Andy actually comes from Nantucket. Which some people must, after all.
Would you/did you “go ballistic”? It’s long been my opinion that comic strip parents (even more so than other comic strip characters) tend to go ballistic as default reaction.
(Spoiler: when my older son was just about Peter Fox’s age…)
