Today's strip pretty much explains why it is that Mike doesn't like Liz. This is because instead of mutely accepting the 'fact' that he 'has' to treat her like shit because he's a whiny little bitch, she stands up for herself.

(Strip Number 7223, Original Publication Date, 10 August 1986)

Panel 1: We find ourselves in the yard watching Mike boast to Lizzie about how comfortable about the hammock he's laying in is.

Panel 2: We set up the conflict by having him be his typical repulsive little shit self smiling a selfish smile and reminding him that there's only room for him.

Panel 3: The strip most people will actually read starts with Lizzie telling Mike that he's been in that hammock long enough and it's his term.

Panel 4: The snotty little puke gets all defensive when his 'right' to hog everything is challenged and whines that he can't help it if he got here first.

Panel 5: He also can't help it if he's bigger and can run faster than her.

Panel 6: It super isn't his fault that Daddy put up only the one hammock.

Panel 7: As Lizzie walks to the house to get someone to pry Ugly Brother loose, she notices the garden hose. (Those who are paying attention will notice that Mike is breathing a sigh of relief because the horrible child who wants to take EVERYTHING away from him because he's too stupid to understand what sharing means has gone away.)

Panel 8: She walks towards the hammock.

Panel 9: She then delights every younger sibling alive who's ever absorbed bullshit from a stupid older sibling who plays the seniority card by drenching the mushheaded goober to his stupid, presumptuous, lazy, fat skin.

Panel 10: As he chases her down with the intent of pounding her for making him pay for the swinishness that fills his heart, she laughs and tells Mike she couldn't help it.

Summary: I wonder exactly when Katie and Aaron gave up on trying to convince people that they were actually seeing their mother's on-going campaign to chase the evil intruder who's supposed to be handed everything out of her house when they saw crap like this and that they themselves didn't really fight like scorpions.
