Lost kid in the supermarket – the climax

OK, so over on Gocomics.com they’ve been rerunning a series about Bo finding a lost child in a store.

So if you haven’t read yesterday’s strip, go read it now. I’ll wait.

(sound of whistling)

One of the readers commented: “Your baby wouldn’t be caged if you kept an eye on it.” (See, aren’t you glad you clicked over there to read the strip? You’d be soooooo lost right now if you didn’t.)

My comment to the reader’s comment is, “That’s exactly what I was trying to get across.” And here’s today’s strip (and I’ll post it if you’re just being too lazy to hit the link.

But that was not the original strip. This was:

My editor, the long-suffering Amy, said that it looked like the woman was ignoring her child. I said, “That’s exactly what I was trying to get across.” She’s meant to be a self-centered jerk. My editor said I can’t mess with motherhood; people will torch-n-pitchfork me. So I had to soften it up. (But, luckily I was able to make it work.)
