Snarky Candiru2

Elly's boasting about the meal she's going to make for Phil and Georgia's visit leads to her being mildly confused by yet another reminder that children and adults don't like the same things.

(Strip Number 407, Original Publication Date, 23 May 1983)

Panel 1: As Elly smiles to herself in anticipation of wowing Georgia with her culinary prowess, Lizzie asks her what they're getting for supper.

Panel 2: Elly is practically half-way to the moon with glee as she lovingly tells Lizzie "Steak, baked potatoes, salad, asparagus in sauce and fruit salad for dessert."

Panel 3: Lizzie registers her disgust by cribbing from Sparky. Elly, having noticed her daughter's "Bleah!!", asks her what's wrong.

Panel 4: Since Lynn suffers from Bil Keane's annoying delusion that children should come out of the womb speaking perfect English, Lizzie says "You never make anyfing good when we got company" because Mommy thinks that she thinks that the word is actually pronounced 'anyfing'.

Summary: Watch the Lynnsight be all about how stupid children are for not loving good grub like this and how irritating it is to be treated like a short order cook by the short ones. No sympathy for their developing palettes is to be considered because that means that they're walking all over her.
