In today's strip, Mike reminds us that no way is he responsible enough to be entrusted with Humphrey the hamster; this is because he assumes that Elly will clean up Humphrey's cage 'cause that's what moms are for.

(Strip Number 579, Original Publication Date, 13 March 1984)

Panel 1: As they drive home, Mike tells a freaked-out Elly that he can't believe that he gets to look after Humphrey this week.

Panel 2: He then asks her "Isn't he a cute hamster, Mom."

Panel 3: He then says that Teacher says that he has to take real good care of the little fellow.

Panel 4: This means that Elly will have to clean out his cage every day.

Summary: My guess is that today's atrocity will be accompanied by notes about how Lynn had to hamster-sit and decided that since the little critters were too high-maintenance, she wants no part of them.
