One Big Happy, 10/24/04

No, no, no, no, One Big Happy! No incest references and no pants-wetting references — please, I beg of you. Other strips feature young children of pants-wetting age and don’t feature pants-wetting jokes. If you open the floodgates (so to speak), think of the madness that will ensue in Hi and Lois and Curtis and (God help us) The Family Circus.

Incidentally, it seems like there’s a lot of downtime in this strip, even if you discount the potentially-lopped-off top row. If the pull of the “mistake in my pants” joke was irresistible (and I concede that I can see how it may well have been), surely it could have been taken care of in three panels, and then never spoken of again?
