Today's strip is a rather off-putting entry in which Lizzie ends up eating dirty snow because she's so into playing pretend that she thinks it actually is ice cream.

(Strip Number 4417, Original Publication Date, 7 March 1984)

Panel 1: As Mike tries to figure out how exactly Gordon is a bad influence, Lizzie hands the him a ball of dirty snow and asks if he wants choc'late ice cream wif raisins in it.

Panel 2: A disgusted Michael tells her that it is just a buncha dirty snow with some rocks in it.

Panel 3: He then asks "You're not really eating it....are you?" to which she replies "Not 'xactly!"

Panel 4: Lizzie's telling him that she's spitting out the raisins leaves him gobsmacked.

Summary: It leaves me wondering why Lynn thinks that this is funny. We not only have a small child eating dirt, we're probably going to get an older brother accused of tricking her into doing it.
