Comic description

In case of broken image links or accessibility issues with today’s cartoon, here’s the gist of today’s cartoon:

The Thorsens are visiting the Butchart Gardens and are walking around one of the ponds in the Japanese Garden section when Ursula spots something in the water, points, and says to Noah, “Daddy! That salamander has two tails!”

Noah immediately realizes her mistake and squirms, explaining, “Uh… no, honey, there’s two salamanders.”

Now confused, Ursula asks, “What are they doing?”

Noah squirms more and says, “Um… they’re working.”

Unfortunately, this just confused Ursula more, saying, “Huh?”

He explains (sorta) further: “Yeah… see, the daddy salamander is helping the mommy salamander make baby salamanders.”

Just then, his mother-in-law Agnes, who has been listening in, pipes up, rolling her eyes and saying, “Pfft! ‘Working.'”

Noah scowls and glares at her, retorting, “Yes, Agnes. Very important work.”
