    My late father was a chronic belcher.

    And I don’t think he had “diaphragm control”.

    I taught my kids to say “I can do better” after that. I think the humor helped them realize it wasn’t the best thing to do in a polite setting

    True artists are never really appreciated by family. I’m pretty sure Jackson Pollok’s family just thought he was making a hellacious mess.

    There is actually a use for burping, called esophageal speech. It is to replace normal speech after surgical removal of the larynx and it can be remarkably pleasant sounding with enough practice. Indeed – there are speech therapists, themselves without a larynx, who teach it. I imagine it would be useful for us when we have laryngitis but it would be a lot of trouble to learn for that.

    Not mentioning any names but my wife and I had a daughter that would do that occasionally. Her Mother was glad when she ‘grew out of that phase’. I for one didn’t care because someone else got yelled at for doing the same thing I did.

    Don’t laugh too hard… even now, someone’s probably writing a concerto for string quartet and intestinal gas. (Stomach gas, if you’re lucky.)

    I am not at a place wear I can access it, but Calvin would have been perfect for Pagliacci’s finale. (Spike Jones version of Pagliacci (Palyatchee) with vocals by Homer and Jethro.)

    Actual true experience in our family. Our 3-year-old rattled the windows with a belch, and we used the “What do you say?” approach. Unfortunately, I added a possible answer: “Mmmm.. Good one!” My wife still has not forgiven me, thirty years later.

    Fun one, due to visuals throughout and Calvin’s diaphragm line in panel 3. Reminds me of a similar comic from years ago, too (that’s always made me laugh out loud) …
