Snarky Candiru2

In today's strip, we find out why Elly is out and get reminded that Mike has internalized Elly's belief that a man simply cannot be allowed to cook or else he'll poison his family.

(Strip Number 4367, Original Publication Date, 6 September 1983)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike asking John, who's reaching into the cupboard, howcome Elly is out?

Panel 2: As he puts the plates he got out of the cupboard down on the counter, John tells Mike that she went to a meeting at the library.

Panel 3: When asked who's making dinner, John tells Mike that he is.

Panel 4: John gets sort of pissed when Mike hams it up about how he's too young to die.

Summary: Knowing Lynn as well as I do, I can tell that she'll make a sweeping generalization about how men can't be allowed in the kitchen. Let's just hope that Gordon Ramsay follows this strip. I'd love to see that dude tear some strips offa the old bird.
