In today's strip, John makes pancakes for the family only to pout like a freaking sooky baby because no one wants them quite yet.

(Strip Number 6116, Original Publication Date, 23 October 1983)

Panel 1: We start a Sunday morning on an unusual note; that's because unlike snoring Elly, John is wide awake at eight in the morning.

Panel 2: His enthusiastic stretching and sighing in satisfaction awaken and anger Elly.

Panel 3: As he gets dressed, she asks him why he's up because it's only eight in the morning.

Panel 4: He explains that every Sunday morning, his dad used to get up and make pancakes.

Panel 5: He then tells her that he has decided to carry on that tradition.

Panel 6: He then makes the pancakes.

Panel 7: Having cooked a great meal for his family, he announces that pancakes are ready.

Panel 8: He is disappointed by his family's response. Said response has Mike whine about being woken up, Lizzie saying that she no hungry and Elly just wanting coffee.

Panel 9: The surly donkey's response is to announce a new new tradition.

Panel 10: Since said new tradition involves his lying in bed growsing about his ungrateful family, I don't see how it differs substantively from his previous tradition.

Summary: I'm sure that the next time John talked about this to Will, the elder Patterson probably said something along the lines of "What the flying [boxcar] did you expect, dummy? You can't just spring things on a family without discussing things first! You ain't the Kaiser and they ain't your slaves so quit your damn pouting, muttonhead!"
