We continue on with the "Let's kill Aaron" show with Michael oppressing John by not having the physical stamina to clean out a garage by himself.

(Strip Number 4496, Original Publication Date, 2 May 1985)

Panel 1: A shocked and disappointed John reminds Michael (who, as we all know, looks as if he'd dissolve into a puddle if his clothes weren't holding him together) that he hasn't finished cleaning the garage. Michael complains that it is too much work.

Panel 2: John accuses Michael of not knowing what work IS.

Panel 3: Michael defends himself by saying he does.

Panel 4: Since he knows that work means getting berated for doing a bad job and being told that the only benefit he should expect from work is the knowledge that his parents get something out of it, he tells John that that is why he didn't finish the garage.

Summary: We're going to get a face-full of that whole "You HORRIBLE, SELFISH child!! How DARE you buy things we can't use!!!" crap Saturday when Mike gets reminded that the best and only thing he should be allowed to gain from things is the knowledge that his parents alone gain from his striving. Simply put, John and Elly are vermin who see people around them as either obstacles to their greed or vending machines meant to reward them for a life of made-up privation.
