Snarky Candiru2

We begin the New Years Eve 20XX arc with John commenting on how awful Elly's cooking is.

(Strip Number 774, Original Publication Date, 28 December 1984)

Panel 1: As John reads his paper, Mike comes in and talks about all of the awful stuff Mom is makin'for the New Years' Eve party.

Panel 2: Since Mike is a child, it's not much of a surprise that a menu consisting of what he describes as cheese stuff, liver stuff and olives mixed up with fish aren't very appealing.

Panel 3: He then asks why Mom always makes that stuff for parties. John doesn't know either.

Panel 4: As Elly scowls the Angry Scowl of Outrage in the background, John makes an assy comment about how after a few wet ones, even her regular cooking tastes good.

Summary: Nice one, pal. She really hates being reminded of how little people care for her idea of gourmet cuisine.
