Ordinarily, I'd speculate on what might happen in a given strip and be proven wrong because of my foolish expectation that Lynn would have the Pattersons behave as if they were normal human beings. That does not obtain today because I know what happens owing to my local paper showing today's strip prematurely.


We have:

- John telling Liz he's proud of her in response to her asking what he thought of the wedding. Reason: She "grew up" and put all the nonsense about defining herself as something other than an extension of her parent's will.


- Weed showing up and turning into the Unnecessary Exposition Fairy by telling them this is a great opportunity for a father-daughter portrait.

- Weed giving them pointers on how to look as if they care about each other. No spontaneity for the Pattersaints. They've got to say they're wonderful with their eyes.

- The two of them thought-bubbling "You're something... wonderful" to each other while looking as if they want to have white-hot sex with each other.

- Me being ashamed to be an English-speaking Canadian.

- Me trying to figure out what the Hell Weed did in panel three that made them look like they wanna vomit in terror.
