I don’t know if this was the correct end to the dead-beat bird storyline. To be honest, I think Mikey’s a jerk.  I side with his parents.  They shoulda kicked him out of the nest.
But for some reason I couldn’t resist a payback strip to bookend the story. In “Fledgling”, Mikey gets kicked out.  In this one, his parents get kicked out. It had a nice symmetry.
So this ends the Michael Rotondo parody. I wonder if we’ll ever hear from that guy again.
