Today's strip is yet another tribute to Lynn's inability to synchronize the Sunday strips with the weekly plotlines. That's because we have to watch Lizzie feed Michael's Halloween candy to Farley.

(Strip Number 6118, Original Publication Date, 6 November 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Farley looking on as Lizzie rifles through a bag of Halloween treats.

Panel 2: She's delighted to find dat dere are four gumballs dat haben't even been cheweded yet.

Panel 3: As she chews her gum, she asks Farley if he wants some.

Panel 4: Farley chews the gum, finds it distasteful and spits it out.

Panel 5: She then asks him if he wants some toffee or a sucker.

Panel 6: The poor animal, while initially confused by having to deal with the odd-tasting food, has come to almost enjoy it.

Panel 7: Having successfully trained Farley to eat candy, Lizzie asks him if he wants a chocolate.

Panel 8: Elly finally decided to show up and asks Lizzie if she's feeding Farley her Halloween candy.

Panel 9: Lizzie says "No."

Panel 10: She gived him Michael's. Mike is not ecstatic.

Summary: The reason I mentioned the synchronization issue is that Elly was supposed to have hidden the candy away earlier in the week. Granted, compared to the ugly-ass habit of talking with a mouth full of food, the witless habit of antagonizing Mike and tormenting a dog, that's like comparing getting a paper cut to being shot in the face with a bazooka.
