After all these years of upholding the traditions of Ozzie Nelson, Ward Cleaver and the other old-school family sitcom dads who never gave a clue what they did for a living we finally learn today that Ted Forth does…
Is there a job title the Evil Genius Francesco Marciuliano (who has done some subtly wonderful things with the post-feminist comic strip since inheriting it years ago) could have chosen that would be more buzz-word-o-matic?

The post-Johnny-Hart B.C. has gone totally off-planet (for, I believe, the first time)
And, maybe I just failed to notice before, but is this the first time in all these years Mom in Baby Blues has been depicted breast-feeding?
EDIT: shona in comments assures me that, yes, I have forgotten a lot of breast-feeding in Baby Blues. D’oh. In my defense, I’m trying to follow a couple hundred comics, and I never have been a cartoon breast man.

Now we know who hasn’t been channel surfing.
