In today's strip, John bonds with Lizzie because she's being rejected by her former primary caregiver.

(Strip Number 733, Original Publication Date, 25 October 1984)

Panel 1: We find John coming up to a crying Lizzie and telling her that he knows that it's hard for her being the youngest because the big kids don't want her around.

Panel 2: He then says that he likes her and wants her around so Mike can shove his attitude up his assthere.

Panel 3: Having been consoled by both John's being there, Lizzie tell Daddy dats he gots somefin'for him.

Panel 4: Said "somefin" is a hug.

Summary: While this moment is fairly sweet, time has diluted it to a horrific extent. This is because yesterday's Lynnsight also applies here in that Katie is still very close to Rod. This makes life God-damned awkward for her given that her mother is a vindictive jackass with an aversion to personal responsibility.

Charles Schulz makes more money than any other dead famous man except Michael Jackson and Elvis

The Forbes list of top-earning dead celebrities.


Peanuts creator Charles Schulz ranks third for the second year in a row with $37 million. The Peanuts are still big but Iconix, which now runs the Peanuts license, thinks they could be even bigger. A new movie, starring the whole gang, is in the works at Fox.

This is just to give you an idea of how much Lynn Johnston has the potential to be making if she was ever willing to hand over her license to professionals, in case you are reading this, Katie. You don't have to be living with a garage full of unsold Farley plush toys and golf club covers.
