The question is: is it misandric or just another bad gag?

The real questions are: Can you imagine the joke being published by a major syndicate the other way round? When is the last time you saw that joke with the father claiming that the mother has no brain?

From the standpoint of humour-theory that should work just as well.

So if your answer to the above questions is “No” and “I can’t remember” then, yes, this is a misandric strip.

Funny how one starts noticing these things…
