In today's part of the "John is wonderful" mini-arc, the petulant wahoo is so angered that his children have free will that he kicks Farley out of pure spite and is reassured by the poor animal's pathetic eagerness to please.

(Strip Number 562, Original Publication Date, 2 March 1984)

Panel 1: As our story continues, we find John bellowing at his pretty much terrified children that he's told them to go to be three times so they'd better stay there.

Panel 2: Angered by the fact that his children are human beings with free will instead of the grinning robots his fragile ego would prefer, the nasty piece of flotsam angrily kicks at poor Farley and tells him to get out of the way. Since the poor creature is used to this sort of thing, he shuffles away from his master's gunboat-sized foot.

Panel 3: He then screams SIT at the poor creature.

Panel 4: Having watched Farley do so, the whiny lump of sludge thought-bubbles that at least someone obeys him.

Summary: What this teaches us is something the late Larry Linville once said about his signature character Frank Burns: he's everywhere and everything. Here, he takes the form of a dentist who never should have been allowed to marry or procreate because the least sign that he ain't going to get his way drives him nuts.
