    Between this comic and Jerry's sad post, I continue to be completely bewildered that anyone would ever want children.

    Well, that's what strikes me about all this - this whole guest-panel series has been a relentless drumbeat of how awful children are.

    I think that's an exaggeration. Today's by Krast Stwawp, yes, and this one by Amy, yes... the joke in all the others, more or less, was incorrect explanations of where babies come from and embarrassment in trying to explain it.

    Indeed - you appear correct, upon further review ;-) Perhaps I'm thinking of comments following the strips, or some such. Additionally, I can't help but have my outlook tainted by memory of all the folks my wife rages about who, upon hearing we have four, make snide comments like "You *DO* know where babies come from, right?" and "What's WRONG with you???" and so on :-P

    When somebody gives you this one, your stock response should be: "Yes, and we're VERY good at it."

    Man, decide not to have kids like me, and people are all, "How come you're not having any kiiiiids?" Decide to have more than two, and people also get all up in your grill? People are silly.
