John, the goat: Lynn's hidden agenda for the hybrid.

There's a damn good reason that Lynn seems to have decided on presenting things from the what trumanf calls the Smacky-Gobbly-Nasty period of the strip: it depicts Elly as a single mther in all but name. As I mentoned earlier, the passve-aggressive bully she married refused to do anything domestic because he had testes. Cleaning house? Interacting with the children unless it could somhow amuse him? Taking Elly seriously? Imfuckingpossible, because he had a penis and she didn't. Since John's stupid, selfish adherence to his outdated worldview stood between our heroine and her happiness, since she could be said to have her children suffer becuase of her rage at him, he could be said to be almost a villain. Seeing the old John in full display serves what Lynn would no dubt call a great real life purpose: turning the reading public against the man he looks like. It matters little that Rod wanted to tone down his 2D counterpart's asshattery; there's enough of him in John to be vilified by the unwary. We can look forward to a future wherein the two-legged sheep from Coffee Talk and the Jim Inmans of the world hope and pray that her legal team crush him like a ant under a steamroller.
