Mike irritates John by making another flippant comment about what to do about the Great Hole Of Parental Meddling.

(Strip Number 4560, Original Publication Date, 29 January 1986)

Panel 1: Upon returning home and finding Jim nursing a sore ankle, John asks Elly what happened.

Panel 2: She, uh, tells him that her dad, uh, was in the, uh, attic and, uh, put his foot through the ceiling.

Panel 3: Freaked-Out John freaks out and asks Elly how he is supposed to fix a hole that big.

Panel 4: When Michael humorously suggests they hang a picture over it, John does the death glare thing in an attempt to kill his son with his thoughts.

Summary: He would also have done so if Mike had said something helpful and told him to call a reputable contractor. Either way, he wants to run around in circles and jump up and down about something he could easily fix if he were to calm the Hell down and not act as if the weight of the world was on his shoulders.
