The second of two strips that tell us that John will also crow about finally stepping up after Elly is too feeble to do housework.

Panel 1: Having finally become aware that he lives in a crazy mom martyr's nightmare fantasy of the impossible mess left behind when husbands and children do the housework, John starts singing in the key of "PICK THIS SHITHOUSE UP!!!!"

Panel 2: When Mike is about to whine that he's being made into a housewife, John points out that there are three capable people in the house so he needs one reason why they can't get things done.

Panel 3: Mike says that Elly isn't due for another few days.

Panel 4: John goes back to reading his paper because he doesn't want to tidy yet.

Summary: Rod is still wondering what the Hell he did to set her off this time.
