Snarky Candiru2

On Ice Storms and Pattersons...

As you might have guessed by now, it seems that my attempt to be Kreskin collided with a natural phenomenon that we're going to be calling The Ice Storm of 2013. This is because Milboring's real world location is smack dab in the middle of the area that spent most of a week without electricity, heat, light, warmth and all the other desiderata that everyone, Deanna included, associate with the holidays. While it's true that any retcon would be all about how someone who isn't Rob Ford has to answer for the clusterfuck that 'ruined' the Pattersons' holidays, it seems to me that the loudest voice screaming about losing everything would have to pretty much be Deanna. This is because it's one thing for her to do without when she's adventuring. Being inconvenienced at this stage would make her act like one of the Romulans whose hairdo she copies. Does it matter that the Province is vomiting relief money and gift cards for groceries? Nope. Her babies were cooooooooold like orphans in a war-zone so it's time for someone to die.

For some odd reason, Mike thinks that John and Elly aren't going to find out that he and Lizzie are playing with booze.

(Strip Number 4461, Original Publication Date, 2 January 1985)

Panel 1: We continue in with Mike stopping Lizzie from waking Mom and Dad with a party horn.

Panel 2: This is because he wants to play around a bit with the leftovers before they get up.

Panel 3: Lizzie asks Mike what'll happen if Mommy finds out he's been playing with the leftover drinks.

Panel 4: Despite his leaving a sticky mess in his wake, he tells Lizzie not to be stoopid because how's MAAAA gonna know anyway?

Summary: IF we don't get a load of old crap about how stealthy Aaron wasn't, we're in for yet another installment of Lynn's stupid childhood being stupid.
