We end the week reminding ourselves why it is that John staggers home looking like Ivan Drago used him as a punching bag when he and Elly talk about how neither of them have the strength to ruin dinner.

(Strip Number 4579, Original Publication Date, 8 March 1986)

Panel 1: We find John and Elly on the couch at home talking about how wiped out they both are.

Panel 2: John adds to the Canadianisms file by saying that he's too bagged to breathe while Elly claims that she can no longer move.

Panel 3: The kids look in as John says that he's falling asleep while Elly says that nothing on her body will function.

Panel 4: Mike tells Lizzie that Mommy an'Daddy're tryin'to decide who's gonna get up an'make supper.

Summary: Ah, well. At least next week, Aaron gets it in the shorts for not being sufficiently supportive and wanting to drain Lynn dry. It may not be much but at least a different sort of passive-aggressive, vindictive nonsense at least refreshes the palate.
