Mike is so desperate for something to tide him over until dinner that he ends up channeling Shaggy and eats dog biscuits.

(Strip Number 5104, Original Publication Date, 17 March 1989)

Panel 1: A short time after he tells Elly to get real, we find Mike bellowing about how he's starving and there's nothing good like candy or cake or nothin'to eat. Ordinarily, this would have Elly stand around saying something irrational and stupid about how if he's 'just' hungry for those things, he's not actually hungry at all.

Panel 2: The reason she's not available for spouting crackhead logic like that is that she's spouting baby talk to Farley about giving him a doggy treat.

Panel 3: She's baffled when she looks inside the empty box because she knows she just bought it and wants to know what happened.

Panel 4: What happened is that Mike glommed on to them so he could sit there watching the box and thought-bubble that Milkbone is tasteless but edible.

Summary: I hope she doesn't allude to how she thought it was funny to serve people kibble again.
