Why do I hate that couch? The stripes are a pain in the butt to draw. I'm kind of surprised Lynn didn't have Elly sell it during the first year of the strip. I'm tempted to have Michael set fire to it so the Pattersons can replace it with a nice, solid white one.
Anyway, this is what I imagine John would bring home from a dental convention.
Before leaving for the convention John, in a new-run strip, listed checking out "new products and new inventions" among the things he was looking forward to doing at the convention he was going to be attending. Credit goes to forworse (here) and howtheduck (here) for inspiring today's strip. Oh, and there's also an eighties-music reference in there. :)
