Snarky Candiru2

Mike panics because he's confronted with the terrifying prospect of having to change Leah's diaper. Too bad he can't yell for Deanna.

(Strip Number 5088, Original Publication Date, 22 February 1989)

Panel 1: Mike thought-bubbles about how at last, he finally got Christopher and Richard into bed.

Panel 2: He tempts fate by stating that he knew that with his superior strength and intellect, he'd eventually be able to handle the monsters.

Panel 3: As he reads the TV listings, he notices that Leah has houdinied out of her crib. She greets him with Johnstonese baby talk and asks him "Bunga?"

Panel 4: Upon noticing that she's got a loaded diaper, he goes into panic mode and says "I can't handle this!!!"

Summary: While it's to be expected that he might have a problem with changing a diaper, I don't really like tomorrow's thing wherein I have to be reminded that thanks to his idiot mother, he grew up thinking that he could bargain with a child. Also, expect an I Was A Teenage Lindy thing that has freak grumble that changing diapers freaked her out as a kid....and as a grown-up!
