(Strip Number 4956. Original Publication Date, 16 April 1988)
Panel 1: As she puts the coffee back in a cupboard, Connie reminds Elly that no one ever said being a parent was going to be easy. Elly agrees with this.
Panel 2: Connie makes me laugh myself sick when she dares say that she and Elly knew what they were doing when they essayed to raise children and that all either can do is their best. Elly's agrrement with that also is good for a laugh.
Panel 3: Connie makes mouth-sounds about how some day, the evil children will appreciate the alleged sacrifices made on their behalf and regret not appreciating their mothers when they were alive.
Panel 4: Both of them say "Some day, they'll have children of their own" and smile wickedly as they contemplate their selfish brats' confusion, fear, anger and a need to grovel to Mommy.
Summary: Now, I don't have kids but I do know that being a parent isn't fun or easy a lot of the time. Problem is that I also know that it ain't as difficult as these two made it for themselves. It sort of ruins the whole camera in the house deal seeing how inept and whiny these two creeps are.
