Snarky Candiru2

Saturday, 20 October 2012

Elly doesn't get to enjoy her clean house for very long; that's because her totally evil children who aren't clueless twits who don't know any better (because thinking that way would mean that Elly is a thin-skinned idiot who blows things out of proportion all the gee-dee time) selfishly and not witlessly track a bunch of leaves into the Pattermanse.

(Strip Number 487, Original Publication Date, 22 October 1983)

Panel 1: The sole panel has Elly's jaw scraping the floor in horror because, as Mike tells her, he and Lizzie brought her some autumn leaves; the reason for her pants-soiling terror is that there are more leaves in the front hall than are in their hands.

Summary: We're definitely in for a note that shows us that Lynn has no clue that the kids meant well. This will be followed next week by hostile letters from Diane S and the gang about how they don't remember the past either.
