Since Lynn decided to write herself a New-ruin that preaches the fact that small children's mouths write cheques their asses cannot cash, I'll have to postpone the pumpkin thing until tomorrow. This means that we're in for yesterday's classic today.

In today's strip, we remind ourselves that Elly is too blasted stupid to do what Val Stone does and buy a bag of Halloween candy for herself; the symptom of that idiocy is her habit of raiding the bags of candy her children ask her to hide from one another.

(Strip Number 491, Original Publication Date, 2 November 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike, who's talking with his mouthful (GROSS!!!!), asking Elly (who was typing up her super-important column about the library) to hide his Halloween candy where Lizzie cannot find it.

Panel 2: Next, Lizzie asks Ma (who's hiding the candy on top of the china cabinet) if she can hide her candy where Michael can't find it.

Panel 3: Elly hides the bags of candy on top of a shelf in a closet.

Panel 4: As she wolfs down some candy, she thought-bubbles about how the real difficulty is hiding it where she can't find it.

Summary: The interesting thing about her doing so is that the children will blame one another for her being a greedy jerk. Way to go, Elly. You've just made Sally Forth into a model parent.
