Good thing the coffee that just came out my nose was real, going to work coffee, not "weekend coffee".

Damn, that was funny.

Used to love playing that in the pool, got good at feeling 'reflected' waves off someone standing quietly near you... but then we used blindfolds.
Bracey Tracey and Johnny can SEE each other, but can't close the deal...
And yes, Polio is Hysterical punch line - fortunately. Nearly eradicated...

disease humor is the best kind of humor

@John Robert Mallernee- Hey, Johnny and his pals give me the jokes - I just write them down.

@TrickyRicky- Just think, if that coffee had been scalding hot you could be suing me right now!

@Stan da Man- I tried to figure out how to set the game in a hydrotherapy tub, but nothing really worked.

@Kelley Logue- I'm not exactly sure how you meant that remark, but this is a good time to remind folks that this strip really isn't about laughing at either illness or those who suffer from illness. Rather, it's about finding ways to cope, including through "gallows humor," when Life throws tough circumstances our way.

My father-in-law had polio as a child, so I know there's nothing funny about the disease. But in this context and with these characters, it is a funny word.
