comic strip: paediatrician by ARCHVERMIN comic strip: paediatrician by ARCHVERMIN
It took a lot of discussion among friends/helpers to decide on a punchline, and even now I'm still not sure of its effectiveness.

I've had the opportunities in my studies to interview several children. They were all so bright and well-behaved and sweet like you'd never believe! In case you don't know, if you were to stroke a baby's palm with your finger, the tiny hand will grasp it tight (an evolutionary reflex). Seeing the tiny fingers hold yours firmly is so adorable it makes your heart melt.

Maybe it's because of the setting, because I can recall many occasions where I see demonic children tormenting their parents in other public places. That was partly the inspiration for this strip.

Btw, here are the other punchlines I considered.

I love it! I would have the same reaction! I would just kill the kid and pry my tie from his hands then tell his mom, "Well, the good news is that he doesn't have a medical condition!"

When I was in primary school there was a kid like that as well his mother had the same set of mind as the one in your comic as well... it was quite a sad story... it needed proper medications but her mom was blind to her sons misfortune... he was a really bright kid thought. but he had a behaviour really really close to the one in your comic.

A friend of the family had a kid like this. Once, he took all his dad's tools and dumped them in the washing machine, and started the wash.

Good times :P

When they make something childproof, what they really should think about is how to prevent a child from annihilating it
