Jargon and Vacation

So, let's get this straight: When it comes to teenage lingo, Lynn just makes it up. Because, after all, no one who reads comic strips really knows what teens sound like. But, when it comes to dental talk, there you've got to have authenticity. "If I just say MODVL people will know I'm faking. Make it a posterior MODVL. Then no dentist will call me a foob."

By the way, based on a recent entry in "April's blog," I got a feeling I know what's going to happen on the elder Patterson's annual multimonth vacation.

    You have to have authentic dental terms b/c dentists are the biggest readers of comic strips...right?Right? Anyways, John looks slipghtly stoned in panel 2 and apparently April like goony dwarves, judging Everett's height in relation to Dr. P's as well as his over-eager expression on the day's work-proceria procelin crowns--Whoo!!!!

    Uhm, yeah. I work in the dental field myself, and that rang all-to-true. And the office also has the over-sized smiling tooth!!! Staple of dentist offices everywhere.

    Was "fill the spaces" supposed to be one of those patented FBoFW puns (coming on the heels of a comment about bridgework)? Or, are there people really standing by, waiting for dentist to call them and bring them in?

    Oh, in Canada you can wait for months for that specialized dental care.
