In today's strip, John begs off on watching the piglets being born by allowing as how watching Lizzie's birth was quite enough for him, thanks loads.

(Strip Number 4349, Original Publication Date, 26 July 1983)

Panel 1: As Elly gets dressed, her zombified idiot husband yawns and asks where she's going.

Panel 2: Elly tells him that the red sow is about to give birth before asking if he wants to watch too. He mutters a tired "Nah."

Panel 3: She then sets up the punchline (one freaking word, Lynnie) by reminding him that he watched Lizzie being born. He mutters Uh-huh...

Panel 4: He then surprises her by grumbling "An'when you've seen one, you've seen'em all."

Summary: He doesn't surprise me one freaking bit. That's because, unlike Elly, I do a moronic thing called 'remembering the past'; doing so tells me that female reproductive biology makes the same tough guy who threatened a slip of a girl because Elly quit motherhood soil his Depends in sheer terror. It also reminds me that he's put in an insanely hard day of self-imposed labor and is about to endure another day of mind-numbing toil and thus must sleep. The gentleman he can be on very rare occasions is currently comatose leaving the core snarling dorkwad.
