Actually, he'll get owned by his own son.
Panel 1: We see him boast to his son about the virtues of raking leaves. He says it feels great but that a mere five year old couldn't handle it so as much as he'd let him try, he won't.
Panel 2: Yessir, he wishes that Mike was old enough to know the bliss of backbreaking manual labor forced on him by a workaholic.
Panel 3: He then says that if he's really good, he'll let him handle it. Mike's response: "Nah. I'll see ya, Dad."
Panel 4: A dejected JSF sits in the leaf pile and references Tom Sawyer as he thought-bubbles that he can't trick his son into doing his work for him.
Summary: This is where Mike learned to be conspicuous by his absence when it came time to do chores.
