Elly: Always a Hypocrite

Sorry this is kind of out of nowhere, but I think it illustrates perfectly how Lynn characterizes her.




And then there was that strip where she made John a plate-sized hamburger that they were both scarfing down that I can't find... although I'd love it if someone did. :-)

It's day eleven of "Parental ineptitude on parade" starring Elly Patterson. Let's see how she and her sidekick John make a total mess of raising an active little boy today.

Panel 1: We start off with Mike at the dinner table Pattersnarfing.

Panel 2: This, of course, causes Elly to materialize and ask him where his manners are.

Panel 3: She reminds him he's eating like hera pig so he should slow down.

Panel 4: He responds by yelling that since it's liver and spinach, he has to gobble it down so he doesn't have to taste it.

Summary: We've just found out why they eat like this, haven't we? We've also discovered that Elly dwells on the negative far too much. It's as if she herself wants to believe that she sucked as a mom.
