This comic may seem crueler to our female readers, but remember this is Mr. Mittens. He has no real conscience in the traditional sense. He is remorseless. He is a cat.
By the way, since it is Halloween, I think parents that don’t let their kids indulge themselves in candy this one night a year are a little wonky. Look, don’t let little Cindy or Billy eat chocolate for breakfast every morning of the year, but a little sugar one night a year isn’t likely to make them any slower, dumber, or fatter.
AMANDA: Don't be mad we ate so much, but it was delicious!
MITTENS: Not a problem. I've been eating the candy in your purse for weeks.
AMANDA: There's no candy in my purse. There's only...my birth control!
MITTENS: And there's my trick.
