We start the second week of the Humphrey the hamster arc with me wincing in sympathy as stupid Mike stupidly fails to realize that hamster balls and stair cases don't mix.

(Strip Number 575, Original Publication Date, 19 March 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with a happy Lizzie telling Mommy that the hamster gots a ball he can run in.

Panel 2: Lizzie might be happy that, as she says, Michael is lettin'him go all over th'house but Elly is not as enthusiastic.

Panel 3: We find out why this is when Elly reacts to the fearful assortment of clattering noises coming from off camera by getting gobsmacked.

Panel 4: Michael comes up from downstairs and tells us that Humphrey has a little trouble with staircases.

Summary: I should say so, eh? It's a wonder that the fall didn't manage to kill the little fellow. Boy, they sure screwed up assigning Humphrey to these idiots, didn't they?
