Snarky Candiru2

For some reason, it's funny that John learned to stop playing with Lizzie because she vomited on him.

(Strip Number 1469, Original Publication Date, 26 June 1989)

Panel 1: As she, Mike and Elizabeth continue to go through the family album, Present Day Elly tells Liz that when she was a newborn, John's daily ritual involved playing with her when he came home from work. Since he slumps down on the couch and begs to be left alone so he can nurse his sore back in peace when he gets home these days, she marvels at this.

Panel 2: We go into flashback mode with Sepia John asking his Sepia Baby Girl how she's doing.

Panel 3: We then go full-colour when, having been jostled around with a full stomach, she alarms him when she BLORPS all over his shirt-front.

Panel 4: We go back into sepia mode when Aghast John is aghast and thought-bubbles that he didn't especially want an answer.

Summary: This is for all of the weird people out there who think that babies blowing chunks on menfolk is funny. Too bad that there are a lot of them.
