Before we launch into this week's "Oh, poor me!! I have to waste time watching Mike play hockey when there are porches to sweep" pity party, Lynn plagiarizes Bil Keane when Lizzie tells Mike about a scientific fact that clashes with his anti-logical mind.

(Strip Number 4528, Original Publication Date, 4 November 1985)

Panel 1: As they drive to hockey practice, Mike tells Lizzie to lookit the Sun'cause it's following them.

Panel 2: Lizzie says the Sun doesn't follow them; since Mike is stupid, he says yeah-huh, it does.

Panel 3: Lizzie explains that no, it doesn't because Miss Lyon explained what happens in kindergarten.

Panel 4: She then 'humorously' stumbles over 'optical illusion' by substituting the more familiar 'obstacle.'

Summary: It wouldn't penetrate Mike's thick skull even if she'd said it properly. History teaches us that he'd rather believe a comforting fairy story that puts him at the centre of things than a truth that makes his presence optional.
