Questions to ponder

There are, unsurprisingly, a number of questions about today's strip.

Why is Arfly so incredibly flummoxed when his wife starts speaking? Was he in the room, also reading quietly, or did he just walk in? Why does it matter that he kept the volume of the tv low? Why, for the love of all that is holy, did Scaduto include the phrase "turn wifey on, too" followed by an "Oh, yeah-h"? Did he not realize the double entendre there? Why does Arfly need Yakeena to be quiet when a football game is on--does he need the nattering of the sportscasters to understand what's going on? Has he not yet figured out how to tune someone out while watching sports? Why would Yakeena think that wallpaper with polka dots and a striped shag carpet would be a good idea? Why are we subjected to another child with a horrible haircut? Is Arfly wearing a blue shirt under a red shirt under a vest, or is that supposed to be his pants? Is that television from the 1950s? (And if so, why am I surprised by this?) Did Scaduto think this scenario up himself (seeing how there's no "Thanks to")? If so, does this represent a decline in reader ideas? What is that bottle on the table next to the coffee cup? Should I go upstairs and get a tuna melt for lunch, or eat the lunch I brought in?

Oh, whoops. That doesn't relate to TDIET. But it's a lot more pressing than any of those other questions.

I understand this is a "personal" blogger, but bad haircuts NOT a laughing matter. Please do not sully the internet with your japes.

2) Those in glass houses (or glass "web-sites") should NOT throw stones at UNATTRACTIVELY-COIFFED PEOPLE.

It looks like that guy does a triple-take as he says, "Huh? Wha? Whazit?" That's 3 separate exclamations of puzzlement! I don't understand how people in this strip are so surprised all time- I thought these annoyances happened every time?
