The one where Liz gets back at Mike for bopping her on the head by exposing him to dog germs.

(Original Publication Date, 9 February 1991)

Panel 1: We fast-forward to watching Mike watch the box in the rec room. Since Mike is starting to become the stupid boy who never sees a gut punch from Liz coming a mile off because of a reason he's about to make damned clear very soon, he doesn't see the obvious danger in Liz's asking him if he wants more popcorn.

Panel 2: Given that she's not going to take getting bopped on the head sitting down any more, I would tend to not be as delighted as he is when he notices that she gave him the biggest bowl.

Panel 3: He volunteers a comment that explains why he never foresees her hitting back when he puffs himself up about how glad he is that she recognizes his obvious superiority.

Simply put, he (like all tank-brained thugs and low-lives) assumes that a show of force will cow someone into eternal compliance.

Panel 4: This is why it comes as a shock when she says something superobvious about how it's actually the bowl the dog licked.

Summary: Now that April will be handling the cute kid material soon, we're starting to redefine Liz as Gutpunch Lass. Tomorrow, howtheduck will show her spying on Mike and Martha The Human Houseplant as a lead-in to his coverage of the Valentines dance that I think leads to Mike being sent to Exile Farm.
