Snarky Candiru2

Well, it looks like we're about to witness the after-effects of RetConnie's visit. Does MikeClone have to pay any penalties for his rude behavior? Not if RevisedElly is as spineless as Regular Elly. What will RetJohn do if he's involved? (Besides wishing he had a hobby to keep him out of the loop, that is.) Will NeoLizabeth walk before Farley arrives? We shall have to see.

Well, he does have o suffer a consequence. He learns his mother doesn't practice what she preaches.

Panel 1: RevisedElly reminds him that he has to be polite to people and he always has to watch what he says.

Panel 2: She then says not to blurt out the first thing that comes into his head. He needs to think and then speak so as to not hurt people's feelings.

Panel 3: MikeClone demonstrates the same poor listening skills as Regular Mike by asking if he can have a pen-knife. RevisedElly, who is giving NeoLizabeth a bath, says "At YOUR age?...."

Panel 4: "........Don't be stupid!!" This, of course, leaves him floored because he just remembered her earlier lecture.

Summary: MikeClone has just learned a valuable lesson: RevisedElly won't tolerate her own wretched behavior from anyone else around her.
