New Years Day 2018

We begin the year with Michael and Lizzie misusing an educational gift in a comic fashion because Children Are Ungrateful.

(Strip Number 5070, Original Publication Date, 2 January 1989)

Panel 1: We begin the transition from the Christmas arc to the "Oh, computers are just AWFUL" arc when we see Elly ask Liz "Wasn't it nice of Auntie Georgia to give you the that globe for Christmas" as the child carries it in an odd manner.

Panel 2: Given that she's taken it off its stand, I'm not sure that I agree with Elly's belief that she's putting it to a good use.

Panel 3: My suspicion is confirmed when she holds it like a bowling ball and tells Mike to set up the building blocks all over again.

Summary: When Bill Amend comments the need to overcompensate for feeling inadequate by buying educational toys, he at least has the smarts to have the kids not know what makes Insecure Parent Andi Fox do that. Lynn does what she always does and yaps about chaos.
