Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 25 March 2013

We start the new week with Elly being filled with horror and despair because her evil four year old deliberately tried to destroy her paintings so as to crush her freedom of expression.

(Strip Number 4418, Original Publication Date, 26 March 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with Mike asking Elly "You know those posters you just painted for the puppet show, Mom?"

Panel 2: As Elly gazes in horror because Lizzie and Farley have trod on through her work, Mike tells her that the paintings are still wet.

Summary: Hum!! It seems to me that Mike didn't do a very good job of keeping Lizzie and Farley away from where Elly works. Then again, it's not really on him, is it? Also, it's not as if Lizzie understands what's going on here....after all, she's four. She might know that Mommy is angry and unhappy all the time but not know why because she simply cannot put herself in Mommy's shoes.
