Thursday, 19 September 2013: Michael Patterson of Earth: DIE!!!!!

In today's strip, John helps reinforce Michael's belief that what's wrong with Elly isn't that she's being treated shabbily by smug rat bastards like themselves but that crazy, scary woman hormones somehow make them want things they shouldn't like a life that isn't dusting chairs and baking cookies.

(Strip Number 710, Original Publication Date, 20 September 1984)

Panel 1: As dullard John cowers behind his paper, the little jackass who started all of this grumps about how Mom is being a grouch about his treating her like his freaking maid.

Panel 2: Since John is the sort of asswipe sitcom husband Cesco described, he blames her bad mood on scary woman hormones making her hate the housework everyone knows wimmen just loves.

Panel 3: Elly loses her shit and tells her asshole husband and shit-disturber son that there's nothing wrong with her that isn't having to clean up after entitled slobs.

Panel 4: Since Mike is averse to accepting responsibility as his useless father, he stage-whispers that he sees John's point.

Summary: The sad thing is that Lynn never seems to have admitted that making Rod out to be a cartoon ogre like John and Aaron into a little monster like Mike constituted a problem for either of them. It would seem that whenever she had to face up to that, she got all prickly and huffed that it was just a comic strip and John and Mike images in her mind that had nothing to do with anything.
