Panel 2: That's "sum," not "gum," just so you know. It does look like a G. And I love John being all coy.

Panel 4: Jesus H. Crimeny, his appearance is changing again! How frakking difficult is it to draw one person consistently? Especially for people who are apparently incapable of drawing April with anything but the propeller head? And I can't help reading wistfulness into John's statement.
Panel 5: Yet another face, and the second time in four days that we've been told men hate to be married. LJ, get therapy.
