We end the home heating arc with Farley sucking up all the heat because dogs and children are equally unteachable.

Panel 1: We find ourselves watching Elly lay down on the couch. As she tries to get comfortable, she cannot because for some reason, she's cold; this baffles her because it's usually so warm there.

Panel 2: Rather than, say, get a blanket or something, she pauses to notice a certain smell.

Panel 3: This means one of two things. The first thing is that one of Anne's kids has stuffed his socks in the baseboard heater again.

Panel 4: As she looks down, she sees the second thing she was thinking of: Farley sitting down in front of the damned thing in order to soak up all the heat ever.

Summary: Back in 1990, this was followed by the Snordasborg strip which made the message "Elly is too pissed at the dog to cook"; now, it is followed by the "But you're taking up the couch" strip which sends a different message entirely.
