Now that it looks as if we're alternating between old and new material, it's likely that we'll see an old strip based on the theme "John is stooopid and useless." My guess is that he'll say something insensitive and smile doing it.

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.
