** Mom tells Calvin that the icky stuff on his plate is monkey brains in order to get him to eat it. But now Dad can't eat it because it {{Squick}}s him out. There's a few other strips with the same theme, such as Mom telling him there's maggots in the soup instead of rice, or they're having spiders for lunch. Invariably, Dad will be too disgusted to eat while Calvin enthusiastically devours his food.

Al angrily declares that "the card got so full that when I tried to use it, it threw up!", then proceeds to make vomiting noises and gestures. At this, everyone promptly puts down their forks.
