We end the week with a one-panel wonder that has Lizzie yelling "KEEP QUIET" because John is taking a nap. I sure hope that she gives Bil Keane his props for coming up with it before she did. Then again, I don't recall him thanking the guy he lifted it from either so.....

(Strip Number 4371, Original Publication Date, 24 September 1983)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the living room watching Bulgy-Eyed Mike dropping a noisy electronic toy in shock because Lizzie bellowed "MOM SAYS DON'T BUG DADDY WHILE HE'S SLEEPING!!" in his ears; what Lizzie doesn't know is that Daddy ain't asleep any longer. She shouts so loudly, he almost knocks over his mug of beer.

Summary: While this is both a fairly plausible scenario and a fairly solid bit (not to mention being Coffee Talk fodder), we can count on Lynn to mess up the gag by slamming either her children, her mother or her brother.
