Monday, 30 October 2017: John Patterson Is WRONG.

As promised, John is not happy when he sees that his kids have crafted what we might call Mr Vegetable Head John.

(Strip Number 1361, Original Publication Date, 27 October 1988)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Lizzie marvel at the cartoon potato nose Mike has put on a jack-o-lantern he's carved.

Panel 2: She does the sticky-out tongued laugh of malice when he puts one of those silly flat caps John wears when he's driving the Variably-Coloured Overcompensationmobile on top of it.

Panel 3: He laughs heartily when she puts a pair of glasses on it.

Panel 4: Since Trash-Bag Johnny would sooner die that be laughed at, he does not find Vegetable John to be all that hilarious.

Summary: This is sort of a follow-up to a strip from two years earlier when John got pissed off at Mike for wanting to do much what he just now did. Reason: John sees humor as a weapon to be deployed against those who cannot (or should not) fight back so responding in kind must be suppressed lest he either be defeated or, worse still, admit that he's wasted his miserable fucking life being a self-important dick with a defective sense of humor.
