Hi and Lois watch

[Hi and Lois, January 28, 2013.]

In the first panel of today’s Hi and Lois, Mom has rebuked her firstborn: “Chip! Do you have to add to the noise?” That’s cold. You should never rebuke your son for playing an acoustic guitar. (Electric? Maybe, sometimes.) I suspect that Chip, amid outcroppings of dog, sofa, and children, has escaped into his music to maintain his sanity on the family’s vast arid living-room plain.

Lois must be watching Downton Abbey. She has Edith’s eyes.

By virtue of the tuning pegs it seems he's playing an acoustic bass guitar, which would understandably beg complaint. ;)

Or maybe it's some sort of ukulele grosso.

That’s the problem with this strip: however closely you look, there’s always another mistake. Chip’s “axe” is seriously lacking in strings too.
