Always something to do behind the hubby! 8^ )
The OCD sex
So close Arlo, so close.
In his defense, he is eating more vegetables.
Is eating corn on the cob over the sink a thing? In the South?
Mr. Johnson is peeking again. This past thursday night hubby ate a brownie over the sink. His wife is funny about crumbs on the floor.
One of the rules about avoiding obesity is never eat while standing.
Husbands spend our lives crawling through our homes on our bellies, keeping our heads down praying the sniper doesn’t get a clear shot.
Unfortunately there are no “Purple Hearts” for husbands.
(Would the minefield analogy been better?)
This is getting to be a mighty long string of “Arlo does something that really is okay and Janis is annoyed.” Being a cartoon managed by a cartoonist with a good track record I am not too concerned….
I swear JJ spies on my parents.
Apparently his plan was just cobbed together…
My dog used to help himself to corn on the cob straight from the garden. We thought it was a racoon at first. We had to make a fence to keep him out.
I like corn cooked on the cob, but I use a knife to cut it off. Less messy.
At least he’s not cleaning auto parts in it.
that’s a two-way street, sister!
Guess he’s not as neat a cobber as he thinks. I wouldn’t waste as many kernels as Arlo seems to be, and I’d run the disposal before she got there as well. She looks better when she’s not frowning, and worse when she’s frowning at you/me.
He forgot to wash his “plate”
Better than peeing in the sink.
The gag is (IMHO): Panel 1, Husband snacks on a leftover piece of corn on the cob over the sink to avoid having to deal with the dirty dish mess. Panel 2, He takes care of the mess he made (in his own mind). Panel 3, He greets the wife coming into the kitchen, satisfied he has followed all wifey’s “rules” of cleanliness if not etiquette. Panel 4, wife discovers hubbies orts in the sink.
Panel 5 (implied), Wife will remind hubby of his failure to leave a clean sink. Next time use a paper plate.
Whether corn on the cob or anything else, nothing drops from my mouth when I’m eating… not into the sink, not onto the floor, not even onto my plate. And if there’s anything inedible — e.g., a fish bone — that I need to remove from my mouth, I use a utensil to do so explicitly.
So all men are slobs. What else is new?
Good grief, I don’t think I’ve left a dirty sink after eating over it since I was 14! I at least make an attempt to clean up after myself, although no matter what I do it isn’t ever good enough. I’m more likely to splash water all over while cleaning up or washing the dishes. That being said, I thought eating over the sink was specifically one of those “single person” (male or female) things. A married man would know better, and a married woman just wouldn’t do it in the first place.
Then the next day Janis sees something else in a fixture with corn put there by Arlo, and has to “run the water.”
The biggest problem with eating over the sink – especially with a food like corn – is that if is left in the sink it either has to be cleaned out of the sink/sink basket or it will go down the drain, what goes down the drain will accumulate and back up the drain pipe, resulting in an expensive call to a plumber – or even worse a more expensive attempt to take out and clean the pipe followed by a call to the plumber.
He’s just too lazy to take and wash a plate (I’m guilty too).
