In today's strip, we see Lynn recycle an old gag how children fight mindlessly over everything; I just hope that the Lynnsight doesn't slam her family too gratuitously.

(Strip Number 4285, Original Publication Date, 26 January 1983)

Panel 1: For some reason or other, we find Mike and Lizzie fighting over a rather simplistic construction made of Tinker Toys. Panicky Lizzie says it's hers while Aggressive Twit Mike says it's his.

Panel 2: Lizzie starts to dig in as they repeat the it's-mining.

Panel 3: The third round of both children claiming that the Tinker Toy is theirs is interrupted by having the silly thing break because they're playing too roughly.

Panel 4: Mike, who wants no part of a broken toy, walks off and tells a bummed-out Lizzie that it's hers.

Summary: While it's sort of true that we are looking at a camera-in-my-house thing, the question of why it is that Elly cannot see fit to supervise these children or why she needs to have them pitted against each other is something that no Lynnsight will ever answer directly. What we'll get is a passive-aggressive rant about how her jerk parents ruined everything by having an unnecessary second child or some such balderdash.

The Podcast for 24 January 2012

Let's see what element of the creative process Lynn gets wrong this time. Also, let's see if her interviewer finally gets as tired of her needlessly flailing limbs as I am.

ETA: In today's thing, she boasts to her interlocutor about being immortalized in Canada's Walk of Fame. Given that she's in the same league with such dubious luminaries as Jim "I don't care how famous he is, he's always gonna be Fire Marshall Bill to me" Carrey, Bill "KHHAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAANNNNN!!!" Shatner and Norm McDonald, I'm not all that impressed.
