Snarky Candiru2

Now that we've changed subjects, we can safely say that any damned thing will happen today. Check that; we can say that anything that makes Elly feel bad will happen today.

Oh, super; it's the last-try-for-a-boy strip.

Panel 1: We start off with Connie telling Elly, who's playing with Lizzie, that women today are lucky that they have the choice of whether to have kids.

Panel 2: She goes on to explain that her mother had her hands full as she herself was the youngest of six daughters.

Panel 3: Elly marvels that Connie's mom must have really wanted a big family.

Panel 4: Connie's response: "Not really; I was my father's last try at having a boy."

Summary: What we have here is not only a slam against Evil Men for not valuing daughters and only wanting sons they can warp into joining the patriarchy, we also have a plug for the Liogrpahies. Jinkies. What a wonderful thing.

ETA: The latest banner reminds us that it's "Farley" month.
