I really feel like I could’ve done more with this one.  Initially I tried to make it an analogy to software testing with simulators, but I couldn’t reach a punchline.  Ultimately I stole a hint of that, threw in a stubborn cheap father and this is where I ended up.  It’s no “Farmers Kneeling,” but it’s no Stinkchunnel either.

Wasn’t sure if the second button-press was necessary, but it seemed a nice little annoying “in your face” to the son, and it made my wife ka-pfff, so I left it in.

MRS. SHOEBOX’S ASSESSMENT OF TODAY’S STRIP:  *Ka-pfff!*  That’s very strange!
