Today's strip that has Elly react strongly in the negative to Mike's idiocy edits out her spanking him raw for witlessly vandalizing her magazine and making a smart remark about it. What it doesn't edit out is the fact that she ragequits being a poet because her son is a doofus with too much time on his hands.

(Strip Number 1088, Original Publication Date, 12 September 1986)

Panel 1: As Elly reads her magazine, she finds something that makes her scream in rage.

Panel 2: Said thing is that Michael has witlessly drawn mustaches and black teeth on every face in said magazine like an idiot.

Panel 3: She then points out that this was the magazine her poem was in and that she was planning on keeping it forever.

Panel 4: We shift focus to his room when he thought-bubbles that all he said is "What's poetry without art?"

Summary: This is where the question "Why would you even do that?" comes into play. What possessed Mike to do that horrible thing? Also, what possessed Elly to give up something she loved merely because her idiot son can't keep his meathooks to himself? What would happen if Elly were to do that to all of the Delicate Genius's book reviews and tell him "Now YOU know how it feels to feel like a jerk, assbucket!"?
