Snarky Candiru2

Monday, 10 June 2013

We begin the last phase of the "Lizzie's Mystery Illness of Pointless Melodrama" arc with Elly screaming at the child to bundle up on a hot day. Forget it killing her to say anything nice about herself; it'd kill Elly stone dead to talk to her offsprings like they were human beings who might actually cooperate were they not constantly told what burdens they are.

(Strip Number 629, Original Publication Date, 11 June 1984)

Panel 1: We start things off with Lizzie going out to play in the sun only to be stopped at the door by Elly who lectures her about not wearing a sweater.

Panel 2: Elly then lectures her about how she still isn't well after her trip to the hospital.

Panel 3: Elizabeth reluctantly puts on a sweater and starts to cry a little because she's gonna be sweating like a pig.

Panel 4: When Elly catches her trying to go out in bare feet in order to keep from frying in her own baby fat, Learning-Impaired Mommy screams Lizzie's name.

Summary: This is where a man named Paul Jones from Saint John, New Brunswick would probably expect to see a snippy Lynnsight about how WE MOMS don't have to care about how our children feel or worry about explaining things because WE MOMS know that children will not cooperate with WE MOMS because they're evil strangers who hate happy mothers and love CHAOS!!!!!!
