John thinks Elly is the crazy one when he balks at retrieving the potty. Spoken like a man without much experience with kids.

(Strip Number 866, Original Publication Date, 11 June 1985)

Panel 1: John cannot get into Anne's to retrieve the One And Only Potty and says Richard will just have to use the one they have.

Panel 2: Elly says that Richard is crying and asks him if he couldn't maybe get in through a window.

Panel 3: John sets himself to fail by asking Elly is she's crazy for wanthing him to break into a house for a potty.

Panel 4: When Elly jabs her finger in the air at him for insulting him, he thought bubbled that she is indeed crazy!

Summary: If you think that you can outshout a kid or force him to do something he doesn't want to, you're the twelve-cylinder whackaloon, Johnny Jump-up.
Koumori and her Laptop

This would make Elly and John's head explode...

I subscribe to Quora, a website where users ask questions and are answered back by others in the community. Here's a question that was asked recently under "Philosophy":

"What, if anything, do children owe their parents?"

Quora doesn't allow nonusers to view their site, so linking would pointless. Instead, I'm going to copy and paste. Many of them were simply one word: Respect. But two went further.
