Wednesday, 24 July 2013: John Patterson Must Die.

Today's strip has John make a nasty comment about what a pain in the neck Elly can be when she makes one about Michael.

(Strip Number 664, Original Publication Date, 25 July 1984)

Panel 1: It's late at night at the Pattermanse and we find John and Elly in bed; as he puts his eyeglasses on the night stand, he tells Elly that she can relax because Michael has arrived safely in Vancouver.

Panel 2: Elly worries about her parents dealing with Michael because he can be a pain in the neck sometimes.

Panel 3: John says they'll be fine.

Panel 4: After all, they raised Elly so they should be used to dealing with irritating people. Suffice to say, she's unimpressed by his "joke".

Summary: As am I. After all, we could say the same blasted thing about Will and Carrie.
