Saturday, 26 September 2015: I have plan for John: MORE PAIN!!!!!!!

Today's strip in which tone deaf John stupidly thinks that Lizzie should applaud his gratuitously and pointlessly hateful act of verbal abuse because she's somehow magically too young to be sensitive reminds us that John has no real idea who the people around him are and what they want. What I want is for someone large to come in and tell him that that his teeth are the People's teeth, to be shared by all.

(Strip Number 4685, Original Publication Date, 27 September 1986)

Panel 1: As John reads the paper, Lizzie comes on to him and asks if he notices anything different.

Panel 2: Elizabeth shows off her new pony tails and ribbons to John.

Panel 3: Hateful bag of pus John makes a cruel joke that they look like handles and thus should be called puny tails which devastates Liz.

Panel 4: When Elizabeth buries her head in the couch because her daddy clearly hates her, IDIOT John tells her she's too young to be so sensitive.

Summary: As I see it, John had one job with Liz that he kept blowing. If it's not realizing that no one is too young to have feelings that get hurt, it's delivering a war zone speech about problem hair because her problems don't make sense to him. Since he's a dumbass, it never occurs to him why she felt as if she didn't belong anywhere despite his and Elly's stupidly making the place a hostile work environment because they don't want to admit that their children's feelings are real.
