Today's strip has Mike torment Farley because there's nothing else for a house-bound boy to do while waiting for the Canadian winter to end.

(Strip Number 7213, Original Publication Date, 6 April 1986)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike rooting around in the basement closet for something.

Panel 2: Said something is John's fishing gear.

Panel 3: The strip most people are actually going to see starts with him sitting at the bottom of the stairs casting a line.

Panel 4: He then starts to real something in.

Panel 5: Said something is Farley who's being attracted by a cartoon soup bone because everyone knows dogs love to chew on bones.

Panel 6: He continues to follow the slowly receding bait.

Panel 7: His biting into it just when he's around a corner from Mike puts an unsettling smile on the boy's face.

Panel 8: Mike yells GOTCHA!!!! and tackles a frightened Farley.

Panel 9: The dog growls at him as he wriggles loose.

Panel 10: As a pissed-off Farley saunters back to where he was before all this started, Mike thought-bubbles that he can't wait for summer to arrive.

Summary: He has something of an advantage over us. This is because summer will eventually arrive; treating Farley with respect and dignity never will. He lives a life of being mistreated by idiots and dies a needless death because Elly is too damned stupid and lazy to buy a proper lock for a gate. Also, since this strip is not the Easter strip, I think that we can look forward to having the strips in December rearranged for the Holidays.
