Wednesday, March 30

I'm sorry, y'all. I can't give commentary on today's strip; I think I have a concussion from the brick house Lynn dropped on my head. Talk amongst yourselves.

(Well, all right; I can say two things. Is that Therese's mother in the last panel? I thought she was supposed to have been cut from Satan's thigh, with no biological parents. And Anthony looks as if he'd like to crawl in a hole.)

ETA again: Whoa! Maybe we're reading that expression all wrong! It may not have anything to do with the announcement. We may be witnessing the moment in which the very elderly Anthony realizes he needs Depends!

Mr. Bun says Lynn must have seen something like this IRL. I dunno. I'd almost say it's too over-the-top to be real, but having visited www.etiquettehell.com, I am aware that there's always someone capable of being more crass than you ever thought possible.

ETA: Okay, I've got my second wind now. April's "never been to a shower before where everybody brought money"? Are we to believe that she's ever been to a shower before, full stop? She's just about to turn 14, for crissakes!
