Go ahead son, I'm listening:



Today's Full Strip

Since the full moon is in the sky (at least, it was in yesterday's strip), I'm guessing Mike's father said he would show up at 2 AM. He probably overslept.

Does Mike call his father "Lonnie" or "Dad?"

Hermite said...

Oh jeez, I almost fell off my chair when I saw that. Thanks for the belly laugh, Wanders.

I'm on a really slow computer this morning, so I didn't see the second graphic until about 30 seconds after the first one popped up. I also thought Dr. Mike was talking to a fist face.

And that brings me to my real point. Ventriloquism is so obviously a sign multiple personalities. Is Moy (or perhaps even Uncle Joe!) trying to besmirch the reputations of psychiatrists by hinting that Dr. Mike's traumatic, absentee-father-during-his-formative-years childhood is actually...crazy? Oh, please! Say it's not so!

How could you, Karen Moy?!?!

Can a Mr./Mrs. Garrett transition be far behind?

Pattym said...

Mike looks different again. Today he reminds me of Donny Osmond. Perhaps Mike is a long lost Osmond Brother. You know Mike, "one bad apple spoils the whole bunch".

maybe dr mike will get lucky and adrian will walk by she loves to make out with guys in orange suits and thats her favorite park bench.

Dr. Mike, I don't think you can make the fist face's eyes pop more by squeezing your wrist.

LOL, Wanders!

phoebes in oxford said...

Again I ask, if Dr Mike knows his father's telephone number and his "roommate", why hasn't he just gone over to his house and confronted his father before now?

Maude Findlay said...

I think I've figured this one out. Mike's father is now a woman. That's the reason why ''Lonnie'' never showed up all those times he wanted to meet with him.

Nathan said...

Um...Mike. Your father is here: in fact, you're looking at his watch right now. He just happens to wear a suit in the same horrid shade of salmon orange as yours. Like father like son, I guess.

But seriously...how is that panel physiologically possible?! Jenna won't be pleased to learn she's dating a contortionist...

Robert said...

Dr. Mike has waited so long, he's checking himself for a pulse.

Maybe his dad is a wandering, restless spirit....I wonder if he's Wilbur?

trixietrudy said...

@Maude Findlay 11:28 I agree! Explains everything.

Brick said...

Wanders, That is the kindest looking fist face I have ever seen. Looks like a good listener too, big eyes, closed mouth. Mike would be lucky to have him.

That's what I was wondering phoebes. I don't get it.

Vicki said...

phoebes and djangosmom : I'm thinking maybe Fred -n-Lonnie live in too bad a neighborhood for the good doctor to risk driving his beemer into! Esp. wearing that orange neon suit!

LoL, Wanders, I'm glad you could make sense of that crazy hand drawing!! Good one!

heydave said...

Oops! I meant Mr./Mrs. Garrison. You know, on South Park? Jeez, you people gotta keep me coherent.

djangosmom said...

i see that Dr. Mike's dad is Senor Lonnie Wences. I used to see him on Ed Sullivan all the time. I did wonder what happened to him.

Cass R. Role said...

Ah yes, today we're back in Mary's kitchen eating bananas and whatever that is coming out of the oven.

I know whenever I have friends over, I always ask them "can I get you something to drink? How about a banana to go with that?"

Robert said...

And Mary's comments infer that she's living it up to Dr. Mike and Jenna to figure out for themselves. Mary's giving up! That's not like her.

trixietrudy said...

I know when I take a steaming hot, bubbling pie out of the oven, I always use a thin dish towel instead of oven mitts. I like to distract my guests from their banana stealing by screaming in pain (next, unseen panel).

Dave in Parma said...

No Robert, she's shifting blame for its failure: "I got them together; but since it is failing it is up to them (i.e. not my fault), and if they choose not to be together because they collectively having alcohol and abandonment issues, it's not my fault...."

Toby eats banannas because they are from Scotland. Ewwww
