Snarky Candiru2

Friday, 18 December 2009

Now that Elly has reminded Phil of his "duty" as an adult to settle down, raise a family, join the PTA, buy some sensible shoes and a Chevrolet and then party till he's broke and they drag him away, she'll probably suggest the perfect person to Dare to be Stoopid with: Connie.

Tomorrow, I guess; today, Phil shows that he doesn't have what it takes to be a dad.

Panel 1: A happy Phil picks up a happy Lizzie as happy Mike gives him a bear hug.

Panel 2: The three of them continue to get tactile.

Panel 3: As the kids SHRIEK and race around the room, he joins in the fun.

Panel 4: All this playing has worn Phil out (or perhaps Mike's hideous leer has taken the wind out of his sails); as they WHIZZZZZ around him in circles, he tells them he's had enough and it's time for them to go to bed.

Summary: Since Phil thinks of being a parent as being a babysitter and finds children's behavior an exhausting hindrance, maybe Elly has a bit of a point about his settling down and raising a family. I mean, he's as competent as John is now and Mike and Anthony will be later on.

ETA: Lynn's newest banner wishes us a Merry Christmas.
