We start Summer off with the kids tormenting Farley and terrifying and confusing Elly by forcing him into her underwear. Putting clothes on the line doesn't seem so cool now, does it, El?

(Strip Number 7028, Original Publication Date, 2 June 1985)

Panel 1: We start things off with a smiling Elly carrying a laundry basket outside.

Panel 2: She smiles as she does laundry properly by hanging it out on a line.

Panel 3: As she rolls out some cookie dough, she's baffled by why Mike is giggling.

Panel 4: She asks him what's so funny.

Panel 5: When he tells her that what's so funny is that she hung her unmentionables outside where everyone can see them, she does a slow burn.

Panel 6: She then asks him what's so funny about that.

Panel 7: She then makes a big long speech about how in this day and age, it's hard to see why putting her lingerie on a clothes line could possibly be amusing.

Panel 8: Before she can somehow twist things around to make him the jerk, the uproarious laughter of children alerts her to something evil she should suppress.

Panel 9: She gapes in horror at an incomprehensible atrocity no one human could possibly anticipate so stop calling her stupid and lacking in imagination, thank you: the kids laughing at an angry Farley because they've somehow forced him into Elly's bra and panties without getting mauled.

Summary: The problem with this sort of strip is that it could have been prevented so very easily if Elly could have given the children something constructive to do while her stuff was drying. She never learns that it's her fault for simply assuming that they'll just sit where they are like little dummies instead of moving around and thinking and all the other things they can only do when she wills it.
