In today's strip, Mike and Lizzie accidentally inconvenience both their parents by doing science without asking first.

(Strip Number 7188, Original Publication Date, 23 June 1985)

Panel 1: As Mike reads Birds of North America, Lizzie tells him that she read it and it's dumb.

Panel 2: That's cause it's gots nuffin'but birds in it.

Panel 3: They learn that birds will collect colored threads if you leave them out.

Panel 4: After that, you can go looking for your threads in the woods.

Panel 5: They cut up a bunch of Elly's good yarn.

Panel 6: They then spread it all over the lawn.

Panel 7: Mike dumps out the last of the yarn.

Panel 8: As John tries mowing the lawn, all the loose strands of yarn the kids dumped on to the ground get tangled around the blade of the lawnmower and cause it to seize up with an audible KAPRRUNNNNNG!!!

Summary: Any sort of Panel 9 would lead to the kids at LEAST getting sent to bed without supper and the book thrown out for complicating the lives of two improvident nitbrains who can't be bothered supervising their dull-witted children.
