Look at the kids expression - he's ready to jump out of that crouch and bolt. Smokin' Mom (who knew!) is in the background, though, otherwise this would not be a comic, it would be the beginning of a school pamphlet entitled "Pervs at the Beach - the Do's and Don'ts.

Why...why is the mom looking on, smiling?

Does anyone else want to hate fuck the mom from Family Circus? It'd go a little something like this:

The first frame would be me plying her with shots at the bar.

The second frame would be us crossing the playground in a circuitous route, going up and down slides, and around merry go rounds, all as denoted by a dotted line.

And in the third frame, the angels of their grandparents openly weep as I fuck their daughter.

So this is the public response when I dabble in the subversive. Noted.

(geez, a whole new set of googlers will be visiting now.)

Saw some interesting debate on this toon on a comic strip message board.

Yes, the presence of the mom is Bill's effort to make things kosher and lite. But through my parental eyes, any bare-chested self proclaimed castle inspectors who approach my kid (even while I'm in the background) are deemed "creepy" by me.

I like trying to squint through my modern perspective to see the original gag. Can..almost...see it..[strain]..tourist being... playful with... Aw, I can't do it. It's all just too creepy.
