That road looks scary to drive on

Today's strip annoys me because we're clearly supposed to be like, "Oh, kids! They think they're so smart when they don't know anything!" But nothing the kid is saying is wrong. When you're first learning to do something, you're much more aware of everything that goes into it. Once you get used to it, though, you don't notice. True, kids get into a lot more accidents than adults, but it's not from being overly cautious, like this kid. Backseat drivers are never fun, but I certainly have no problem with Wombo here. The father's pissing me off, though. Dude, if you learned to ride a skateboard, you probably would've lectured him on how to do it properly.

Naturally, though, I'm happy about the return of the black convertible.

I believe the dad is lying, and he did lecture his kid on how to properly use a skateboard back in the day. At least he nagged him about wearing pads and a helmet, which Wombo, of course, ignored.

Is Wombo pronounced "Wahm-bo" or "Woom-o", as in, "the damn kid just got out of the womb and he's lecturing me"?
