Friday, 23 January 2015: Marian Richards is ALSO stoopid and useless.

When Marian dismisses Elly's comment about the fearful mess Jim is making being an interfering old buffoon with more energy than brains because she thinks he's actually helping, she ends up asking the musical question "What are you, some kind of imbecile?"

(Strip Number 4556, Original Publication Date, 24 January 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly ask Marian why it is that Jim suddenly decided to inspect their insulation.

Panel 2: She points out that he's getting dust everywhere and tracking fiberglass all over the carpet.

Panel 3: Marian chooses to blind herself to the problem by reminding Elly that Jim has a certain character trait.

Panel 4: Said quality that must never be questioned is the need to be useful.

Summary: This inability to see the real problem comes into play next week when she's more focused on the fact that Jim's wearing his good pants than the fact that the dumbass jammed his big, flat foot through a ceiling doing something futile.
